Japan

Few places in the world manage to strike such an elegant balance between preserving its ancient traditions and forging the path in cutting-edge technology as Japan. Whether you're drawn to the bustling streets of Tokyo, the serene gardens of Kyoto, or the majestic peak of Mount Fuji, there's something for every traveler to fall in love with in Japan. Witness the breathtaking beauty of cherry blossom season, or hanami, when the country is blanketed in a sea of delicate pink petals each spring.

Take the high-speed bullet trains, called Shinkansen, which run at up to 200 miles per hour, as a quick and comfortable way to travel between cities. Stay at a traditional ryokan, or inn, where you'll sleep in tatami-matted rooms, enjoy exquisite kaiseki meals and experience the full breadth of warm Japanese hospitality. Retreat into the peace of a perfectly manicured Zen Garden or participate in onsen culture - bathing in natural hot springs - as a tranquil escape from the chaos of daily life.
