I first visited Japan (Yokohama) in 1969 and have returned many times over the last 40 years to numerous different cities with my employment in the UK Merchant Navy. In April 2018 I am returning once ...again however this time as a tourist with my wife and we are really looking forward to seeing the magnificent cherry blossom and spending some quality time in Tokyo. We are then visiting Amorori, Hakodate and Sapporo. Japan is a great country to visit and travelling around could not be easier due to the excellent railway systems they have and the amazing help offered by locals who are only to willing to help and assist when you encounter problems with directions or language issues....

Japan is truly exceptional, not only the people and true kindness but the place is just something of dreams. We love visitng Japan so much that we decided to name our daughter Sakura (cherry blossom) japanese. If you haven't been already or are thinking about visiting then please do not hesitate!
me and my husband went for 3 weeks on our more recent trip. We started in Shinigawa district and visitng places on the the ever so punctual Yamanote line, after tokyo we headed on the shinkansen to osaka, Hiroshima ? Which is the most peaceful place, which is strange considering what tragedy struck there. We also visited kumamoto and their beautiful gardens which are in abundance! We also revisited kyoto. The highlight of our most recent trip was going far south down to Kagoshima prefecture and catching the hydro foil over to Yakashima island for 3 nights and staying in a local guesthouse in which we made great froends.with the owners ken and ate out overlooking the milkyway stars and mountains for miles, whilst there we took a bus trip up through the mountains to a place called Shiritani to see 3-4 thousand year old cedar trees? And the local Yaku deer, it was out of this world.There was so many amazing locations on our trip also including nikko waterfall, mount takao san. I could ramble on for hours. We are yet to take my daughter Sakura and would love to have the chance to take her where her name is from:) would love to be able to go in april to go cherry blosom watching in the parks. Another reason Jaoan is so soecial to me is because i have a rare disease called Lupus so i am allergic to the sun, when in Japan i can use my umbrella and no one takes a second look as they are all very sun consious. Makes me really happy when there. X fingers crossed for the competition

I went to Japan for the first time earlier this year. I visited Tokyo, Kyoto, Osaka and Hiroshima. It is the most amazing country I have had the pleasure of visiting. The people are friendly, the stre...ets are safe, the history and culture is amazing and the scenery is stunning. I would recommend a visit to anyone as there is so much for people to see and do.
It saddens me when people see a tourism page and can think of nothing else to say other than down voting a country, that they have probably never been to, because of attitudes towards marine life. If you go there you would see the massive conservation projects and a massive opposition to whaling etc. I didn't see a single restaurant with whale, shark or dolphin on the menu.
Tokyo is truly the city that never sleeps with an amazing mix of modernity and history with amazing bars and restaurants. Kyoto is the old capital and has truly stunning sites to behold. I can now see why Osaka is the accredited inspiration for blade runner a very vibrant and alternative city with much to offer. Finally Hiroshima, which was tranquil, peaceful and emotional, truly a reminder for us all that peace in this world is what we should all aspire to.
Go there visit the country, experience the culture, meet the people, you will find it to be one of the most amazing experiences of your life.

Shane: Big In Japan

It's a must-win game for Wales against Italy this weekend, and in honour of our opponents I thought I would pay homage to their famous Castrati! After enjoying ...their hospitality Andy and I decided to treat the Japanese locals to a rendition of a traditional Welsh hymn. Unfortunately the only one they had was in a key Katherine Jenkins would struggle with - watch out for that top note!

These magical night photos of Tokyo’s streets by self-taught photographer Masashi Wakui look straight out of a Miyazaki film!

Centrally located near the Imperial Palace, Hoshino Tokyo is Hoshino Resorts' first hotel in an urban setting, much less a big city like Tokyo. 🗼
Offering a traditional ryokan (Japanese inn) experience with modern touches and impeccable hospitality, it also has an onsen (natural hot spring) on the 17th floor with panoramic city views. It doesn't get much better than this!😍
