Description

Just mentioning 'Japan' conjures up so many images for people across the globe, spanning from the ancient to the modern. Japan is geisha in flowing kimonos and wooden shoes for some, Harajuku schoolgirls in Gothic Lolita petticoats and Hello Kitty headbands for others. Some might think of ancient temples and Shinto shrines, while others might envision Tokyo's iPod vending machines or apartment dwellers' robotic pets. Just by Japan's geography -- an island archipelago buttressing Asia's far eastern coast -- the Land of the Rising Sun was perhaps destined to greatness. The homogenous culture grew in relative isolation for many centuries, and the resulting culture boasts untold unique facets. Visit Kyoto to walk back through time, whether temples, geisha and kabuki theatre fascinate travelers. Tokyo has more people (and money) than just about any place on the planet. Although Japan is not a cheap destination, the non-claustrophobic can stay in a capsule hotel to save costs, or try a traditional Japanese hotel called a ryokan, where communal baths and traditional meals are part of the experience.
