Japan is the best!
The nicest people with a polite and considerate attitude that leaves every other country in their wake, the food is to die for, the scenery is simply stunning and the trains run on time!
It is a very easy country to travel around and it’s efficient transport system means there are never any missed connections.
Japan is probably the most expensive of the Asian countries, but this means it is also first world and virtually the safest country on Earth. The high level of technology is evident wherever you look, and the streets are spotless.
And did I mention the food!?
All the cool kids know the coolest stuff comes from Japan, home of the Kawaii culture and fun.
Visit a hedgehog cafe, there’s even cat, dog, owl, monster and maid cafes too, to name a few.
Enjoy epic snow in the Japanese Alps not far out of Tokyo, or go up to Hokkaido for the famous Japowder.
The cherry blossoms are out of this world and the geisha girls are mysteriously cool.
It’s an ancient culture with a modern twist and Japan just gets it right. It is a great place to take the kids with attractions such as giant transformers and robot restaurants to entertain them.
Not to mention the vending machines!!!!!
