Voyages Jules Verne

Visit Japan

Welcome to a land of stark contrasts, where the past and future exist in perfect harmony and combine to create a unique culture. Rich heritage and cutting-edge innovation make this an unusual destination that should be at the top of every discerning traveller’s list.

Japan is home to 123 million people and the hyperactive metropolises so many call home will satisfy your senses like never before. Nowhere on earth is quite like Tokyo – the sounds, the lights, the speed. And no film or photograph you’ve ever seen will compare to enjoying the buzz of the capital in person – the personality of such a place really does get lost in translation.

As well as dynamic cities, a journey through Japan will show you many sites of great beauty and historical importance, such as Mount Fuji, Osaka and Kyoto. The Kansai region is filled with tranquil shrines and magnificent Buddhist temples surrounded by exquisite gardens developed over centuries but untouched by the hands of time. Other attractions include traditional geisha entertainment, imperial palaces, an evolving contemporary-art scene and the Peace Memorial Park in Hiroshima.

Japan’s natural world is one of mountainous terrains, cherry blossom and beautiful Zen rock gardens. Every environment is catered for here, from dense forests to coral reefs.
