Japan consists of four major islands located in the Pacific Ocean. It is rich in history and culture with 21 World Heritage Sites and countless shrines, as well as being famous for its bustling metropolitan cities and the annual cherry blossom festival. Japan also offers plenty to do outdoors with the Olympic slopes in Nagano, the iconic Mt. Fuji outside of Tokyo, and the tropical islands of the Okinawa archipelago in the south. Not to mention the endless hole in the wall bars and restraurants offering the highest quality of sushi, ramen, and sake.
