Japanese Cherry Blossom Fever 2018

It’s springtime in Japan and that means cherry blossom season is near. But today snow is the last thing on people’s minds as cherry blossom fever begins to spread across the country, and around the globe. Despite its short season - the earliest Japanese cherry blossom trees (sakura) begin to bloom in southern Japan in late March with the last petals typically falling to the ground in mid-May in the north - the humble cherry blossom holds an important place in Japanese society.

Kimono 101

When you think of Japan, chances are your mind quickly conjures up images of multi-tiered pagodas, sushi, and kimono. While kimono are a common sight, even in modern day Japan, most foreigners are surprised to learn that a typical kimono is made up of 12 (and sometimes more) separate pieces. And knowing how to properly wear them is a testament to a level of attention to detail and tradition rarely found outside of Japan.

White people, please stop telling me I don’t ‘look Asian enough’

Chinatown. The word conjures images, vivid and distinct: blinking lights around a set menu in a restaurant window. Dark martial arts studios in deep basements with bearded men dispensing ancient secrets of self-defense. The ever-present smell of cooking rice, its steam scenting everything in the building with a moist sweetness.

Sumo for Beginners

Japan’s national sport, Sumo, is a traditional style of wrestling with roots reaching back to Shinto festivals during the Edō period (1603-1868). Wrestlers would perform at shrines during these celebrations to entertain and honour the Shinto gods and goddesses (kami) with the hope their actions would encourage a bountiful harvest.

Japan Holidays

Japan is a fascinating country of contrasts as it is a unique place where modernity and the traditions of old sit harmoniously side by side. Head to the cities for world-class shopping, top galleries and some of the finest dining in the world. Rural locations offer different delights in the form of scenic walks snd remarkable scenery.

Japan Flights

Japan is an island nation that is located in East Asia. Referred to as the “Land of the Rising Sun”, this country is comprised of well over seven hundred different islands while most of us are only familiar with the four largest known as Honshu, Hokkaido, Shikoku and Kyushu. Of course, such a diversity has enabled Japan to be one of the most popular tourist spots in all of Asia.

Kii Peninsula Holidays

The Kii Peninsula is one of the most pronounced peninsulas found on the Japanese island of Honshu. This location is known for a few rather interesting features.
