The Land of the Rising Sun, of the secret world of the Geisha, of the mysterious Samurai, and then again of anime, technology and the bullet train. Japan is a fascinating land of contrasts, of day to day paradoxes that manage to baffle even the most well travelled among us. Travel to Japan, a place where the ancient and the futuristic seem to coexist in complete harmony - it will leave you in awe.
