The Japanese archipelago is divided into four chief islands, namely, Honshu, Hokkaido, Kyushu and Shikoku for administrative reasons. Its terrain is dominated by rolling hills and volcanic mountains, a large number of them are considered to be active ones. Mount Fuji, lying southwest of the capital city Tokyo, a city that brings to its shores millions of tourists every year. The immense mountainous landscape of Japanese Alps is situated at the heart of Honshu. Along with this rugged terrain, there are a few lowlands and flatlands which are sprinkled across the coastline. Shipping to Japan's coastal and interior regions is heavily undertaken as the nation remains one the world's most financially flourishing countries.
While it may be known around the world for its animated pop culture and brazen modern lifestyle, the Japanese preserve their traditional practices. This is a strong attempt to keep alive the country's ancient arts and festivals. A large number of these festivals and religious ceremonies happen in the imperial city of Kyoto. Popular among tourists is the Gion Festival, Aoi Festival and the Jidai Festival. A sought-after traditional practice by people visiting the country is the Japanese tea ceremony. Special tours are arranged for those interested in participating in this religious activity. These guided tours also offer a shukubo (temple dwelling) retreat. Send parcel to Japan from the United Kingdom as it offers another way to connect with the ancient and spiritual homeland.
