Why Visit Japan?
Japan has been a popular tourist destination for many decades. One reason it is able to draw so many people together from different backgrounds is that it has a rare quality created from a magical mixture of nature, history, and modernity.
Wherever one looks, one sees a stimulating fusion of East and West. The liveliest districts are lined with trendy boutiques, fashionable department stores, and a jumble of sloping streets with neon signs; while Shinto rituals and Buddhist traditions are widely practiced, with worshipers pulling on a bell rope and clapping, or burning incense, then standing in silent prayer.
