Culturally, Japan is the closest you can get to visiting another planet. From the neon mania of Tokyo to the hypnotic ritual of geisha teahouses, the culture sucks you in and leaves you permanently changed -- in a good way.

Map of Japan


An archipelago of 6,852 islands, Japan packs the world's tenth-largest population into under 150,000 square miles. The greater Tokyo region is the largest metropolitan area in the world, housing over 30 million residents.

Travis's Tips

When Travis Rice does Japan, he does it like there’s no tomorrow (or even today, past 2 AM).


Days 1-3: Tokyo

There's no better city to get lost in for three days. From the neon nightlife to the peaceful temples to the urban intensity, Tokyo will suck you in.

Days 4-5: Nikko

Hop a bullet train to this centuries-old sacred site dotted with shrines and temples. Visit Toshugu Shrine and see the mausoleum of Tokugawa Ieyasu.

Days 6-9: Kyoto

Tour every inch of this former imperial capital, including the shrines, gardens and, of course, the famed Geisha district.
