Japan is a vibrant youth-driven culture and one of the great undiscovered places on earth.
Japan’s best-kept-secret – the plus-alpha, not to be found in any guide book, which turns a visit to Japan from something you wanted to do once in your life, to something you’ll remember with affection all of your life – is the pure, unadulterated charm to be found in the little things which are so intrinsic to life here. The attention-to-detail, almost religious passion for continually heightening levels of convenience, and well-hidden but wonderful-to-discover passionate individuality of people living in a society demanding conformity, make even the most mundane acts like taking a taxi, travelling on the subway, and most strikingly (!), going to the toilet, eye-opening and simply memorable.
