Japan

There's so much more to Japan that it's capital, Tokyo, making it a wonderful choice for a culturally rich holiday experience.

INTRODUCTION

The deer filled city of Nara simply beautiful. Nature is so close to everything, with exceptional attention to detail wherever you are and stunning colours. Beside the deer parks, you must visit the big Buddha in Todaiji  and the Kassuga Taisha shrine. Compared to the ancient cities of Kyoto, the temples and shrines in Nara are daring and bold, making for a wonderful contrast. Saying this, the deer park is the main reason to visit Nara, and once you're there, you'll see just how beautiful and magical Nara is.

There are plenty more locations in Japan that are certainly worth exploring, including the beautiful island of Ishigaki with exceptional beaches and coral reefs, as well as Kanazawa, Japan's central Honshu island which boasts many historical attractions and modern museums. One of Kanazawa's main attractions is Kenrokuen, which is widely considered the most beautiful of the landscapes gardens in Japan.
