Essentials in Japan

Tokyo: This sprawling metropolis is a whole other creature than the cities we're used to navigating in Europe. Don't look for an old town, because you won't find one. But you'll still find hints of the past. Tokyo's temples and shrines live in quaint and manicured gardens, traditional shops and restaurants that continue on in the same way from generation to generation. The Sensoji Temple and the Imperial Palace are noteworthy stops while on holidays in Japan.

Kyoto: For more traditional Japanese, Kyoto is an excellent choice. As the ancient capital, Kyoto is widely considered the culture heart of the country and is home to hundreds of Buddhist temples and zen gardens. Kyoto is easily reached from Tokyo with a car hire Japan.

Mount Fuji: Fuji-san is the highest mountain in Japan and attracts a fair number of visitors to its peak. This 3, 776 metre mount however is not fit for amateur climbers. Both altitude and climate can do you over. The best months for climbing are July and August and watching the sun rise from the top is something spectacular.

Accommodations in Japan

Japan offers something totally different in terms of accommodation. You'll find the usually backpackers hostels and hotels in Japan suited for business travellers but you can also stay at uniquely Japanese hotels as well. The ryokan for example is a traditional inn, the capsule hotels are more practical and functional than cosy and comfortable or you and your sweetheart can book a room in a love hotel.
