Japan is something else. A country of geisha, emperors and elegant art – it’s like nowhere you’ve been before. The cuisine is considered one of the best in the world and the culture is unique. High-tech inventions pour out of its cities, from vending machines that dispense hot items to amazing humanoid robotics. Get close to the cutting edge and the culturally sublime: book flights to Japan.
British Airways flies direct to Tokyo, and our partnerships with Finnair, Iberia and Japanese Airlines allow you to fly to several Japanese cities with just one stop. Japan is made up of four mountainous main islands and thousands of smaller ones with climates ranging from the ski-able to the sub-tropical. The famous Shinkansen (bullet train) sweeps you to Kyoto and Osaka, and the islands are well-connected. Snow-capped Mount Fiji is a sight to behold, and on the farthest southern outpost of Okinawa you’ll find lovely beaches. First-time visitors spend time on Honshu, in the cities of Tokyo, Kyoto, Osaka or Hiroshima. Each city is a motherboard of high rises: surging with people, great shopping and food – but even in the cities you can find beautiful zen gardens, shrines and water gardens – and Kyoto, the former imperial capital, is replete with historic sights.
