Japan, where bullet trains streak into the past, begins to unfold as you
enter a Zen temple, then witness an ancient ritual in a Shinto shrine.
Travelling south to the resort of Ibusuki, you'll marvel at guests buried to
the neck in steaming volcanic sand. Leave your shoes at the door of a
ryokan and pad across tatami mats to spend a night in a room with rice paper
walls. Admire the Great Buddah of Kamakura, the splendid architecture of
400-year-old Himeji Castle, and the three monkeys at the Toshogu Shrine in
Nikko. Plunge into the frantic pace of Tokyo during the Sanja Matsuri
Festival and meet a master Bunraku puppeteer backstage at the National
Theatre of Japan.
