Cheap Flights to Japan
What to know before you fly to Japan?
With some of the world's most advanced and energetic cities, breathtaking ski slopes, picturesque traditional gardens and important cultural sites, Japan offers holiday makers a level of diversity scarcely found in Asia and indeed the world.
Heian Shrine, Kyoto
Many of Japan's most iconic images come out of Kyoto's 17 World Heritage sites. Having been the capital of Japan from 794 to 1868, Kyoto is home to an astonishing number of temples, shrines and gardens. Perhaps the most famous is Kinkaku-ji, or the Golden Pavillion, a Zen Buddhist temple recognised by its pure gold leaf exterior. The gardens surrounding the temple are also immaculate and well worth a couple of hours of exploring.
Tokyo City with Mount Fuji in the Distance
Few cities are as modern, technologically advanced and utterly obsessed with all things new as the Japanese capital of Tokyo. Weave your way through the myriad of glistening skyscrapers and gaze in amazement at all the latest fashions and newest gadgets. Try the hugely popular Great Cycling Tour for an entertaining and active way to see and learn about Tokyo. Then to relax, take a walk through the Shinjuku Gyoen National Garden and experience one of Japan's most beautiful and historically significant displays of flora.
