Ultra modern & timeless culture, Japan is full of contradictions!
For the second year in a row I was privileged to join Globus Family of Brands on their Top Sellers trip, and it was another amazing experience!
We began in Kyoto, travelled to Takayama in the Alps, on to Mt Fuji & finished in Tokyo.
It was an action packed 10 days, including visiting the temples of Kyoto, a cooking class where I got to make sushi & teriyaki chicken, the Unesco heritage town of Shirakawa with its thatched roofs, the incredible bling of Robot Restaurant in Tokyo, trying on a traditional kimono, watching Sumo wrestlers train & having lunch with them, and of course what visit to Japan would be complete without a few Karaoke nights!
Everything is so clean, the public toilets are amazing & enjoying the traditional onsen (public bathhouse) is a unique experience. The people are so hospitable & polite, the nature of the Japanese people really is the country’s treasure.
