A one-of-a-kind symbiosis between past and future, Japan is a place like no other. If it's culture shock you're looking for, look no further. Unfamiliar sights, sounds and tastes will force you to rethink your worldview in the best way possible. The Japanese have perfected living in the moment, paying tribute to the now. Whether that means holding your chopsticks a certain way or treating others with respect, it's all about being conscious of yourself, those around you and all that nature has to offer.
