The land of the rising sun
Tailor-made trip to Japan
Those who arrive in Japan for the first time suddenly perceive the physical and cultural distance that separates them: a country that challenges the world by the power of its contrasts. On the one hand, the chaotic and innovative Nippon city that always goes further setting trends among other cosmopolitan metropolises. That of ultra-high-speed trains, streets full of skyscrapers, sparkling neon lights, bicycles and pedestrians. The engine that drives the country’s changes.
On the other hand, the sweetest and most traditional facet, that of the sanctuaries of the mountains, sacred forests, seductive and fleeting geishas that, even today, can be seen in the narrow streets of their old neighborhoods.

Top Experience: Staying in a Ryokan
A unique experience to delve into the most authentic culture and traditions of the Japanese country is to stay in a Ryokan, nestled in beautiful natural landscapes. Tatami floors or straw mats, sliding doors made of paper or shoji, relax on a futon, try typical dishes prepared with exquisite taste or enjoy a pleasant thermal bath in a private onsen in an atmosphere that gives off an absolute tranquillity.
Recommended season: spring
The best time to travel to Japan is during the spring, which has a warm climate, and when the cherry blossomoccurs in the Tokyo area (late March, early April). Splendid landscapes, mountains and gardens plagued by the rosy color of the flowers characterize this time of year.
Autumn is also an ideal time to travel to Japan, characterized by pleasant temperatures and the reddish tones that the leaves of the trees acquire and that dye nature with very special colors.
One of the most eagerly awaited events in Japan is the so-called hanami, which takes place at the end of March at the beginning of April and consists of contemplating the flowering of the cherry trees, which announce with their beautiful flowers the end of the winter season and the promise of a warmer and more pleasant weather. The beginning of a new, more beautiful and fruitful stage.
This short space of time becomes the ideal moment to meet family and friends for a picnic in the shade of the trees, surrounded by a spectacular landscape full of white, red and violet flowers.
Some of the most popular places to enjoy this event are the Yoyogi Park in Tokyo, the Kiyomizudera Temple in Kyoto and the gardens of Osaka Castle.
