Arts & Culture






Japanese culture has made waves around the world — and it’s easy to see why.
Japan finds beauty in simplicity, and elevates the everyday into high art. You’ll notice an inimitable style in the sleek silhouette of the bullet train, in the manga that captivates commuters, and in the distinctive architecture of its ancient temples and shrines.
A trip to Japan isn’t complete without immersing yourself in its culture, and there are plenty of ways to get involved. Don a yukata robe for a matsuri street festival, enjoy a dramatic kabuki theater performance, or browse one of many world-class galleries and museums. Wherever you wander, you’ll discover a palpable sense of creativity at every corner.
