A country brimming with mega-urban centres and ancient shrines, techno consumers and meek geishas – there isn’t a better example of a place where old collides with new than Japan. From the neon lights and electric pace of Tokyo to the temple-rich streets of Kyoto, the Land of the Rising Sun offers abounding contradictions. This is all part of the heady allure that makes travellers the world over keep coming back for more.
