No matter how much you think you know about Japan, nothing can prepare you for the moment when you step out into the buzzing, neon-lit streets of downtown Tokyo for the first time.
Day 1-3: Most travellers to Japan touch down at Tokyo International Airport (Haneda Airport). Settle into your hotel before checking out the best sights that this famous city has to offer, such as Shibuya Crossing, Shinjuku Gyoen National Garden and the Tokyo Skytree.
Day 4-5: Take the futuristic Shinkansen (bullet train) to Osaka. Japan’s third biggest city, this place lures travellers with its vibrant food scene and attractions such as Osaka Castle and Universal Studios Japan.
Day 6-7: Hop back on the train and head to Kyoto, Japan’s spiritual heart. Spend your days exploring its serene temples, shrines and gardens.
Cherry blossom season is one of the most popular times to visit Japan. The country explodes into colour each year between late April and early May.
