Japan is an extraordinary country that is home to ancient traditions and ever-changing fads. Its complex culture is steeped in thousand-year beliefs, yet adapts to an influx of technological developments and trends. Although Japan’s roots were partly influenced from traditional Chinese culture, Japan has since given birth to its own special traits that are distinctly Japanese. From multiple religions coexisting with one another, to mouthwatering cuisine, elegant gardens, traditional sports, cherry blossoms, to manga & anime, Japan constantly fascinates travelers from around the world with its diverse possibilities. Learn the unique social conventions of Japanese people, visit a temple or shrine, observe the details of Japanese architecture, dress up as a geisha, or have fun at one of Japan’s impressive festivals. Thanks to the country’s rich culture, every traveler can immerse themselves in the fascinating world of Japan.
