About Japan

Japan is an island nation in the Pacific Ocean and home to Tokyo, its capital city and the biggest metropolis in the world. With over 9 million inhabitants, you would expect Tokyo to be a chaotic city, but in reality, it's unlikely you will find a more organised, clean and vibrant city. Over 70% of Japan is mountainous, which makes it the perfect destination not just for city lovers, but for outdoors enthusiasts as well. Japan has over 6000 islands, of which over 430 are inhabited. The main islands are Hokkaido, Honshu (home to Japan's main cities such as Tokyo, Kyoto, Osaka and Hiroshima), Shikoku and Kyushu. With an array of cities, towns and preserved villages, Japan is still an undiscovered gem which continues to fascinated tourists and travellers from the West.

The key to enjoying the best trip to Japan is to be prepared on what is expected of you in terms of customs, manners and etiquette. We put all these together so you can impress the locals and blend in.
