Holidays to Japan

Japan is a fascinating country full of contrasts, with fast-paced, ultra-modern cities and historic villages retaining ancient traditions. There are tranquil temples, beautiful scenery, and polite, hospitable people. Japanese cuisine is a delight to explore, and partaking in a traditional tea ceremony is a must.

From the bright lights of Tokyo to the cherry blossoms of Kyoto and charming town of Takayama, Japan is as diverse as it is captivating. From a bullet train ride through the countryside to sampling sake, experience the best of beautiful Japan.

Japan is a fascinating country. I could have happily spent weeks just learning more about its history and culture. There are so many cultural intricacies that the local guides highlighted and explained.

I found the local people, in all the destinations we visited, to be hospitable and ever so polite.

Although the level of English in Japan is not as high as I had expected, it was no problem at all. Wherever we went, the local people were friendly and did what they could to assist us. Having a local guide to deal with the more technical aspects was also invaluable.

Throughout the tour of Japan, the food was excellent. Some meals were included, which were generally great, but the chance to dine at really local restaurants was really appreciated.

Some of the best places we dined were arranged by our tour leader Nikki. After many bowls of rice, it is easy to indulge your sweet tooth at many of Japan's boulangeries and bakeries, this was especially the case in Kyoto.

Japan is also painted as an expensive destination. However, this was certainly not the case for optional entrance fees, food and drinks. It was, in most cases, cheaper than Australia with most local meals costing less than $10.

The trains, busses and trams were also a great and generally comfortable throughout. There were numerous 'bullet train' trips but the local trams in Hiroshima were a real surprise.

Some of the scenery was not expected. Although super high-tech and with densely popualt cities, the countryside is expansive and forests dominated most of the inter-city travel.

I look forward to visiting Japan again, next time heading up to Udanaka and spending some more time in Tokyo - a truly amazing city!
Finding good coffee was a struggle at times!
