The ‘Land of the Rising Sun’ effortlessly combines ancient traditions and modern life. On first inspection this country appears exceedingly modern but as you explore this island nation it become evident the country’s traditional culture is still of key importance today. The natural beauty of the country is equally as diverse with over two thirds of the nation covered in mountains and bubbling natural spring at every turn. In the spring months the island literally blooms with the arrival of the rose-coloured cherry blossoms and the country is equally as picturesque in the Autumn as the foliage turns to hues of red and gold. The city metropolises are bursting with neon lights and are reminiscent of sci-fi films sets. The addition of new architectural masterpieces are redefining what a cityscape should look like.
