Japan is home to nearly 127 million people spread across 6,852 islands; though most of the population resides on one of four main islands. As the third largest economy in the world, Japan is a highly developed and modern country and home to probably the best transit system in the world.
Despite its modernity, Japan also has many communities that have preserved traditional ways of life which can make a trip to the country especially memorable. Kyoto is a great destination for those looking to experience the traditional charm that makes Japanese culture truly special.
