Japan is one of the most peaceful countries in the world despite its densely packed population, and it has the second-lowest murder rate in the world. If you don't understand how that is possible, try strolling through one of the country's peaceful gardens, where bubbling fountains and beautiful blossoms will instantly put you at ease.
Join in the good-natured chaos at one of Japan's many fish markets to rub elbows with all manners of people, and snag some fresh seafood to make your own sushi. Visit the Shrines of Ise to see traditional Japanese architecture and appreciate the intricate blending of outdoor and indoor spaces. Ebookers can help you plan your entire trip.
