Located in East Asia and separated from the continent by the Japan and China Seas, Japan attracts people because it is both reassuring and exotic. Blending Western codes and the Japanese art of living, urban effervescence and inner calm, ultra-modernity and tradition, apparent rigor and openness, Japan is accessible to the least seasoned travelers and confusing to others.
We know the cultural richness of Japan, we imagine it less as a nature destination. And yet, if you go off the beaten track, the country has plenty to surprise you. Whatever the season, come and visit Japan, the country of a thousand atmospheres!
