Featured Destinations

Tokyo

Huge department stores brim with shoppers, neon flashes from dusk to dawn, and the entire world pays heed to the slightest fluctuation on the Nikkei Index. From the Imperial Palace and Meiji Shrine to the fabled Ginza district, 20th-century Tokyo is an intriguing composite of East and West. Yuppies sporting Walkmen bow formally in greeting. Women in kimonos and Dior suits stroll side-by-side. Geishas play samisens while disc jockeys play the Top Forty. Japanese houses of wood and paper stand in the shadow of towering steel and mortar. Not far away, one of the world's most impressive sights soars 12,388 feet to its snow-clad peak: Mount Fuji, the majestic symbol of Japan.

Kushiro

Kushiro offers visitors a variety of attractions to enjoy including the Fisherman's Wharf MOO. It's unique architecture and location make it a perfect place for photos. The complex also houses many restaurants and excellent shopping. Kushiro also has one of the largest zoo's in Japan, a Wetland, and Marsh Observatory with luscious walking trails.

Takayama

Takayama is a settlement located in the heart of the Japanese Alps in the Hida region of Gifu Prefecture. Also known as Hida-Takayama, this city beautifully preserves traditions of both Old and New World Japan. It was first inhabited primarily by carpenters from the Jomon Period (12,000 BC) who worked on the Imperial Palace in Kyoto and many temples of Kyoto and Nara. During the turn of the 16th century, Takayama’s Kanamori clan built the Takayama Castle enforcing control of the entire Hida Province. A hundred years later, feuds between the Japanese military government and Tokugawa shogunate dwindled and the Tokugawa shogunates claimed Takayama isolating them from the rest of Japan. Over a 300-year period, Takayama developed its own culture. In Takayama, visitors can experience the grace of Old Japan, participate in the Spring and Autumn festivals and witness the change of seasons amongst exotic floras and cherry blossoms, stroll through the temples and former castles, and relax in hot springs of the Japanese Alps.
