  • Why we love Japan

    • Stay overnight on Koya San, a sacred mountain for the Koyasan Shingon sect of Japanese Buddhism. We stay in shukubo (temple accommodation) alongside Buddhist pilgrims. The lodging is simple yet peaceful and the vegetarian meals are amazingly tasty and beautifully presented
    • The experience at Koyasan captures what is, for us, the true essence of Japan. For a country which stands so much for pushing technology and mankind forward, the Japanese have an ability to step outside the frenzy of modern life and almost make time stand still
    • From the intricate and unchanging ceremonies of the shukubo to elaborately painted Kyoto geisha, from the sacred deer of Todai-ji to the quiet national obsession with Mt Fuji, this is a country that understands the beauty of simplicity and the peace in nature.

    Safety information

    Crime levels are low. It is generally safe to walk about at night and to travel on public transport, but you should maintain the same level of vigilance as you would at home and take sensible precautions. Reports of inappropriate touching or ‘chikan’ of female passengers on commuter trains are fairly common. The police advise that you shout at the perpetrator to attract attention and ask a fellow passenger to call the train staff. The Roppongi entertainment district of Tokyo is considered a higher risk area for crime.

    Cherry blossom season in Japan

    Monique Engler says from the end of March to early May, sakura bloom all over Japan. The cherry blossoms come and go, but not without being noticed.

    Everyone stops. The whole country drinks sake until they can’t walk, and stare at the blossoms until the last pale petal floats to the...

    A musical journey around the world

    Think Buenos Aires and the strains of the tango accompany the images; memories of Cuba come with a breathless dash of rumba music and separating the sounds of West Africa from its people is nigh on impossible.

    Music is the lifeblood of many countries, and catching a local performance is...
