holiday in Japan?
Japan is a country full of contradictions, especially the mix of super-new technology with ancient
Japan's sights are mainly temples and shrines of one sort or another but many tourists find the hectic pace of life, extraordinary cleanliness of the people and country and the dedication to product and service perfection of the Japanese to be of more interest.
Japanese cuisine is superb and not pricey,
hotels are reasonably cheap and domestic
transport is unbelievably efficient.
Japan is often
crowded and overwhelming, there are dreary, endless suburbs of plasticoted walls and skies strung with
a tangled spaghetti of overhead powercables, while concrete is takes over the rest.
