PLACES

Experience Japan, a land which combines ancient mysterious wonder and western modernity for a truly captivating experience. Whether it is the flashy neon urban settings, the pristine natural scenery or our beloved Japanese macaque's, Japan is a location that should be on every traveller's bucket list. Known as the 'land of the rising sun' circa 7th/8th century, Japan has provided plenty of contributions to the world through cuisine, sports, culture and much more. When visiting for the first time, we advise visitors to explore everything that Japan has to offer. The fashion, the nightlife, food, temples and anything else that springs to mind.

Events

There is always something to do in Japan. There is always an event or venue waiting to welcome visitors from overseas with open arms. In a country as culturally diverse as Japan, things to do can range from traditional event such as Sumo wrestling and our beautiful Geisha performances to the more modern endeavours such as football, basketball and of course, baseball. During your stay here, we would recommend immersing yourself in authentic Japanese culture and visiting the world famous Ryogoku Kokugikan sumo arena to witness a time honoured tradition of watching Sumo's duel. For a more modern experience of Japanese culture there's also Japanese baseball, which is followed by millions of viewers annually in Japan. Another one of our most popular events include the various festivals that occur throughout the year. One such example includes the hauntingly beautiful festival of Toro Nagashi (literally, 'flowing lanterns'). Fun fact: Lanterns in Japanese culture are said to represent the cycle of life and are also said to be a visual reference to love and protection from evil.

Travel

As a developed nation with a robust infrastructure, travel around Japan is usually a safe, simple and straightforward affair. For example, the 24-Hour Tokyo Subway Ticket costs 800 yen for adults and 400 yen for 11 years old or under, and will save you money if you get on and off a subway train at least five times in 24 hours. The Tokyo subway system is one of the largest and busiest in the world. There are 13 lines, 8 operated by Tokyo Metro or (TRTA) Teito Rapid Transit Authority (formerly Eidan Subways) and 4 lines managed by Toei Subway run by the Tokyo Metropolitan Government. Most cities in Japan are covered by local bus networks.
