Travel to Japan just for the food. The emphasis on excellent, farm-to-table fare is second only to Italy, but with very different flavours. When you’re there you’ll be blown away by the striking countryside, the bright and manic cities, the depth of their customs and traditions and the serenity of the temples and gardens. It’s an intriguing and unique country of contrasts and one that everyone should visit during their life.
