Japan

Luxury comes easily to Japan. Attention to detail and an innate ability to anticipate the needs of others make exceptional experiences an everyday occurrence. Otherworldly landscapes and cosmopolitan cities provide the perfect backdrop to a culture where tradition is revered and aesthetics are deeply appreciated.

Powder snow, tropical beaches, and steaming hot springs make up Japan’s diverse landscapes

Its state of flux defines Japan’s wilderness; this archipelago bubbles with volcanic activity, continually changing the landscape. Its four distinct seasons and the cherry blossom, colorful foliage, and powder snow they bring, further compliment the evolving environment.

While Japan may be better known for its busy cities, the majority of the country is made up of forested mountains, offering opportunities for skiing, hiking, onsen baths, and forest bathing.

Cultural Vibes

A strong sense of heritage has preserved Japan’s most remarkable rituals
Japan embraces the cutting edge but has its roots firmly in tradition. Diving into the intricate rituals it so carefully preserves brings Japan into sharper focus. Ceremonies, performances, and crafts can take a lifetime to master and years to fully appreciate, but even the most rudimentary understanding makes tea ceremonies, geisha dances, sword forging, and Zen Buddhist practices something special to observe.
