The capital of Japan is a must-go to discover the many different aspects of the country. From the trendy boutiques of the Shibuya district to the video games and electronic stores in the Akihabara district, to the calming and relaxing Shinjuku Gyoen National Garden, each district has its own unique atmosphere. Kyoto, the former capital of the country, offers a calmer atmosphere. In the spring, a stroll along the Philosopher’s walk is a great opportunity to admire the blooming cherry trees. The city is also famous for its Zen temples and gardens. Visitors will be taken on a journey through history by a visit of Himeji Castle and of the Peace Memorial Museum in Hiroshima.
