Japan is the certainty of absolute love at first sight ! We fall into another world, we leave in search of a country, a culture, a state of mind to realise, at the end of the road, that we have lost all our reference points but that we have found ourselves a little. You will have understood: a trip to Japan has a dimension as fascinating as it is elusive.

In this authentic country, we are quickly touched by the omnipresent spirituality, by the kindness of the inhabitants, always helpful and smiling, and by the beauty which is found in a thousand small details that we discover during our stay in Japan...

The streets of Tokyo, Kyoto or Osaka are to be crossed with a drumbeat, led by the desire to see and to seize everything of these vibrant colours which stun, of these passers-by who do not stop circulating, of eternal movements and of great monuments.

But it is by diving into Japan’s countryside, mountains and small fishing villages with toothless grandmothers, that you have the best chance of capturing the essence of this land of a thousand faces. It is here, in rural Japan, that the most delicious seafood is tasted, the best sake is brewed, the most beautiful rice fields are cultivated. It is here that you will meet the most beautiful people, that you will be welcomed warmly by Taketomi, Chiaki, Shuji and all the others, who will be delighted to share an ounce of their life with you.

You too, let yourself be tempted by an adventure as rich in human and cultural terms: entrust us with your desires and let's organise together the trip in Japan that suits you!

A country with many faces

Exotic in so many different aspects, Japan transports you from one extreme to the other, between bustling mega-cities, small forgotten islands and green mountains – there is something for everyone! When you travel to Japan, punctuate your journey with a variety of activities: tea ceremonies, the art of ikebana floral arrangement, cooking classes or a meeting with a maiko - an apprentice geisha! For those looking to immerse themselves in pristine nature, why not hike the imposing volcanoes of Kyushu or dive and sunbathe on the deserted islands and turquoise waters of Okinawa?

Japan, a land of discovery

Located at the extremity of the Far East, Japan offers the promise of another world. This extensive archipelago allows you to live a thousand different experiences in one trip! When you travel to Japan with Shanti Travel, our expertise allows you to be referred to the region that best suits you: to meet bears and cranes in the wilderness of Hokkaido, to stroll far from the big cities in the hidden region of Tohoku, to admire the small villages and castles of the Japanese Alps or make the pilgrimage of the 88 temples of Shikoku. The choice is yours – discover timeless Japan between Tokyo, Kyoto and Mount Fuji!

A wonder at every moment

Traveling in Japan allows you to enter a world full of poetry! Here, everything is subject to contemplation: we marvel at each bloom of cherry blossom, the glow of maple leaves, the delicacy of a garden covered with snow or green tea plantations.. Regardless of the season you choose to travel to Japan, colors intertwine to offer travelers and photographers a show of beauty.

This contemplative spirit distils a message of modesty and reminds us that ephemeral living beings are part of a cycle and a phenomenon so much greater than ourselves. A trip organized in Japan by our Travel Experts is an ideal opportunity to relax and focus on exploring and absorbing as much of the culture and landscapes as possible!
