Japan calls to mind the mysteries of an isolated ancient culture and the serenity of Buddhist and Shinto teachings. It also inspires the modern images of bustling cities, neon-signs, and impressive skyscrapers. It is a place that has emerged on the world’s travel map and is now eager to share its wonders. It is also a place with a rich cultural heritage and a long and storied history dating far beyond recent memory to the days of empires and samurai.
With Boundless Journeys, you’ll be immersed in the full breadth of the Japanese culture, both modern and traditional. Explore the vibrant cities and then escape the beaten path to discover hidden gems and step back in time. From brightly-painted shrines to towering bamboo forests, and from tidy Zen rock gardens to sampling new flavors, immerse yourself in the country’s cultural and historic treasures, ancient traditions, bucolic villages, and scenic trails.
