Wander down the streets of Asakusa and you could be forgiven for thinking you’ve stepped back in time. Like so much of Japan, this bustling neighbourhood plays host to ancient temples and ageing shopfronts, on plots surrounded by modern skyscrapers and the stunning neon backdrop of Tokyo.

From the shimmering waterfront of Yokohama to the bustling back alleys of Osaka, Sapporo’s snowy climes and Kyoto’s historic neighbourhoods, Japan presents a charming mix of old and new, making 'The Land of the Rising Sun' the perfect destination for a multifaceted holiday.
