A land of contrasts, Japan is as compelling a destination as almost anywhere on Earth. Switch from electrifying Tokyo and Osaka to the majesty of Mt. Fuji, and compare the high- speed Bullet Train to the calm of Kyoto’s temples and teahouses. In between, savor the cherry tree-coated countryside and delicate cuisine, and explore malls and markets for a taste of everyday life. Plus, consider extending your horizons further than this captivating nation by adding time in Beijing or Hong Kong.
