As a traveller, you will be amazed by the charming courtesy with which you are welcomed and also the care and refinement of Japanese food culture. It is a country where the majority of the population lives in the big cities, but Japan also stands for beautiful unspoilt landscapes and thousands of islands in the Pacific Ring of Fire.
