J for Japan

All travelling is experiential to varying levels. A visit to Japan keeps all your senses on the alert- like you’ve suddenly had 5 cups of coffee and you’re now wide awake and alert. Although cliched- it is a land of contrasts. Where the old and new merge harmoniously to make you go ‘wow’. Where the perfectly timed shinkansens (bullet trains) coexist with the tatami floored tea-rooms in perfect silence. Where the mist covers not only the sublime slopes of Mt Fuji but also the towering skyscrapers of the city.
