Types of travellers and activities

Japan for lovers of the exotic

If there's one thing Japan stands out for, it's the uniqueness of its culture, which makes it different from other Asian countries. A millenary culture that continues to be very present and rooted in modern Japanese society. Where rituals are done as in the past and ways of thinking have changed very little, even in the city of Tokyo, the most modern city in the world. And it is precisely this that makes it really fascinating, the fact of perfectly integrating tradition with modernity. If not, how else can we understand that we can find a Shinto temple that breathes peace and harmony in the heart of Tokyo, surrounded by skyscrapers? Don't wait any longer to book your rental in Japan and come and discover it!

Did you know that in several communities on the southern coast between Yokohama and Gifu, especially in Shizuoka province, there are large communities of Portuguese and Spanish speakers?

Top 5 Recommendations in Japan

1. Visit their temples

Religion remains one of the most important aspects of Japanese society. That's why Shinto and Buddhist temples are part of their people's daily lives. Some of the country's best are in Kyoto, but Nara, Nikko, Miyajima and Tokyo also have some really impressive sanctuaries.

2. Spend a night in a Buddhist monastery

KoyaSan is one of the most sacred cities in the country. Here you can spend the night in a Buddhist monastery and share the day to day with the monks, going to morning prayer, taking a bath in their bosom, tasting their food or learning more about their traditions.

3. Travel to the future in the neighbourhoods of Shinjuku and Akinabara

Tokyo is the most futuristic city in the world. You can feel like an ant in front of the impressive skyscrapers, get dizzy with the neon lights and have a great time between cosplay and comic shops in the neighbourhoods of Shinjuku and Akinabara. You'll even find robot restaurants and women with pink hair and green eyes.

4. Fall in love with its incredible natural landscapes

If you travel to Japan during the Hanami season, when cherry blossoms bloom, or during the Momiji season, in autumn, you can enjoy truly beautiful landscapes. Mount Fuji, Japan's highest mountain, is one of the best places to enjoy them.

5. Taste the delights of its typical cuisine

It's quite likely that you've ever tasted sushi, but Japan's cuisine encompasses much more. One of the healthiest, most complete and tastiest kitchens in the world. Therefore, if you enjoy the local cuisine, Japan is a small paradise where you can try an endless number of different dishes.
