Surprising and contradictory, Japan is a country balancing the scales like legs straddling a seesaw. Ultra modern, yet also elegantly historical and formal, cute, fun, serious, sensible and graceful are all useful words in describing Japan's character. Japan honours the geisha and sumo wrestler, the business man and huge eyed animae character.

Land of beauty and culture

My first and currently only stay in Japan was a short 9 days. I loved the culture I was greated with when I arrived. The people were not pushy, as the stereotype indicates, but extremely polite and interested in others.

I do not know many people who have been to Japan and now I wonder why! I believe that this is worth a visit. I would recommend Japan even to the amateur traveler. Although it is a different language with different characters, there are still many who speak English and who are willing to help you. I hope to return to Japan in the future.
