The Land of the Rising Sun strikes me as one of the most remarkable, picturesque, and gracious countries I’ve visited. Theirs is a culture that mixes an inherent cultural kindness with that of a high-tech society.

The many faces of Japan stretch from the ‘hustle and bustle’ of modern city life in Tokyo, to the mellow landscapes of the Hokuriku region and to an almost Zen-like experience when visiting Kyoto.
