Japan - Destination of the Month

Japan is at the same time steeped in centuries of highly revered traditions and a pioneering force of cutting edge technology and innovation, making a holiday here exciting and varied.

Holidays in Japan are about balance, and should take in the phenomenal natural beauty of the nation, from the perfect cone of Mount Fuji to the near-magical onsens, or thermal pools, which dot the countryside as well as the cities like Kyoto with its temples, shrines and gardens and Osaka with its bustling streets filled with a kaleidoscope of colourful adverts.

Time should also be taken to savour the cuisine - seafood lovers will adore the fresh flavours of sushi, and who could resist the perfect bowl of udon or soba noodles after a long day exploring? And the drinkers among you should experience the highly nuanced and ritualistic tea ceremonies or sipping traditional, warming sake. 

When planning holidays in Japan it's best to pick the season that excites you best. In spring, one of nature's greatest phenomenon happens - the sakura or cherry blossom flowering  - and many holidays to Japan are timed to witness the beautiful blush of delicate pink blossom which covers the country. In summer, walkers follow ancient trails in the Japanese Alps, when they are at their best. In autumn the koyo or autumn leaves are a stunning display of colour across the forests -  a photographer's dream come true.

Whichever season you choose Abbey Travel and Exodus Travels can offer you an exciting and varied adventure holiday in Japan.
