Japan appears exceedingly modern but travelling around it offers numerous opportunities to connect with the country's traditional culture. Spend the night in a traditional Japanese inn, sleeping on futons and tatami mats, and padding through well-worn wooden halls to the bathhouse for a truly spiritual experience.
The quality of food is also exceptional, and it varies wildly by region and season, restaurants often specialize in just one dish, spending generations perfecting it to a tee. The presentation of dishes is exquisite and often look like works of art, and let us not forget it is the home of the freshest, most delicate of sushi.
In terms of travelling within the county, Japan is incredibly easy to get around: you can do a whole trip using nothing but its immaculate, efficient public transport. Major cities have subway networks that are signposted in English and these days we are seeing and hearing more English all over.
