With some of the most amazing cities on earth, mountain ranges of breathtaking beauty and a culture dating back thousands of years, Japan has something to offer everyone. It is a remarkably diverse country where the past, the present and to some extent, even the future, sit side by side complimenting and contradicting one another.
In our sightseeing guide are going to build up a selection of destination guides for you, full of our ideas and recommendations of what to see and where to go. We're not trying to be comprehensive here so don't expect to find every little detail about a place. These are just our personal thoughts and suggestions on things to see and do whilst in Japan. And of course, if you have any recommendations of your own then please E-mail us and we'll do our best to include them.
If you need help planning a trip to Japan, have some questions you can't find the answers to in these pages, or just want some general advice then please contact our sponsors Inside Japan Tours whose small team of Japan experts will be delighted to assist you.
