Hi,Everyone!I'm Patty Kim.Today our destination is Japan.A country that's steeped in tradition,but one that also lives on a cutting edge of the future.It's one of the few places in the world,where tradition and change go hand in hand--a place built on paradox.This is Japan.

A throbbing country of more than a hundred twenty-seven million people crammed into a chain of islands,an area smaller than California.Maybe it's not so surprising that such a modern place hold such a strong grip on its cultural past.It was only as recently as the late 1800s,when the country emerge from hundreds of years of isolation brought on by it's rulers.Nothing embodies the contrasts of tradition and modernism quite like Tokyo.Staying in the capital,a city of 12 million people,you'll be albe to experience some of the best shopping,dining and cultural treasures the country has to offer.And if you're looking for a taste of authentic Tokyo,you don't have to go far.Head out to the Tsukiji Wholesale Fish Market,handling seafood for the entire region around Tokyo.

For a breath of fresh air,plan a day trip to be iconic Mount Fuji.Located 62 miles southwest of Tokyo in the Fuji-Hakone-Izu National Park,Mount Fuji is the hightest mountain in Japan,rising more than 12,000 feet.Although it's covered by snow several months out of the year,the secret mountain remained one of Japan's most popular attractions.
Just at the south of Mount Fuji is a natural wonder of a bay called Suruga.Here boaters enjoy pristine water conditions,divers check out the sealife and researchers congregate to study this wonderful marine habitat.Above water,the wild life is no less impressive.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 bet for 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 performers.Keep in mind though it might not be a great stuff for kids.Performances last about three hours.Drinks and snacks are usually available in the foyer.You can also buy a ticket for the set bentou(便当) or lunch box.It'll be served to you in the dining room during the intermission.

For those seeking out traditional arts and crafts,Japan won't disappoint.For ceramics lovers,you think you died and gone to heaven.Japan boasts(有引以为豪的) hundreds of famous kilns and many 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 Bunraku Puppetry,to the thrill of watching some of Japan's finest athletes compete in the Sumo rings of Tokyo or Osaka.Japan offers the unique promise of experiencing the past,but with one eye always looking towards the future.
