Staying in the capital, a city of over 12 million people, you will be able to experience some of the best shopping, dining and culture treasures the country has to offer.

Japan also offers the opportunity to come  face to face with some amazing animals such as the Japanese giant hornet or the Japanese macaque.

When you're ready for more urban exploration, give traditional kabuki theater a try. Your best back for a good show will come in Kyoto, Osaka or Tokyo. Japan's traditional theater is known for highly stylized drama and elaborate makeup worn by its all male performance. Keep in mind though it might not be a great stop for kids. Performances last about 3 hours. Drinks and snacks are usually available in the / .You can also buy a ticket for a sat bental or lunch box. It will be served to you in the dining room during the intermission.

For those seeking out traditional arts and crafts, Japan won't disappoint. For ceramic's lovers, he'll think he've died and gun a heaven. Japan both hundreds of famous kilns and many of the country's master potters continue the tradition on the island of Kyushu. From handmade Japanese paper called Washi to the centuries' old art of boom rackle puppetry to the thrill of watching some of the Japan's finest athletes competing the Sumo Race of Tokyo or Osaka, Japan offers the unique promise of experiencing the past but with one eye always looking toward the future.
