Japan, the land of the Rising Sun and the most delicious sushi, is a special fusion of ancient culture and ultramodern technology. Nowhere else in the world do these two opposites come together so effortlessly. On the one hand there are the ancient temples and forgotten rituals, on the other the latest games and bizarre technical gadgets. The serene tranquility in Kyoto and the bright neon signs in the world's largest city Tokyo: it seems an impossible combination, but in Japan it is the most normal thing in the world.

Japanese chaos in Tokyo and Osaka

The metropolis of Tokyo is an unprecedented experience. The Shibuya intersection alone is a world unto itself. Neon and giant screens scream for your attention on every street corner. A moment of peace in this metropolis can be found in the Ueno park or in the Asakusa district with its beautiful Senso-Ji temple. Another city in Japan that always lives and never sleeps is Osaka. Here, in the business center of the country, you will find everything that Japan is known for. Delicious sushi places and crazy shops. In short, always busy and always something to do.

Geishas in Kyoto

But Japan also has a different face. Take the train to Kyoto and meet the world famous geishas. Visit beautiful temples such as Fushimi Inari Temple and step inside castles of gold. Kyoto is the sacred center of modern Japan. Also in Matsumoto, Nara and Kamakura you step into the world of ancient Japan with its beautiful nature and stunning temples. As if time has stood still. The ascent of Mount Fuji is the perfect ending to this wonderful country.
