Welcome to Japan

Japan is a volcanic archipelago of 6, 800 islands in a north-east-south-west arc that stretches for approximately 1, 500 miles off the east coast of Asia, in a volcanic zone on the Pacific Ring of Fire.

A large percentage of Japan is forested, mountainous and uninhabited, with it densely populated cities in its coastal areas.

A tour of Japan lets you discover big cities filled with modern skyscrapers and ancient temples, as well as quiet country landscapes dotted with castles, perfectly manicured gardens, cherry orchards, and primeval forests.
