Japan’s heady juxtaposition of high-tech metropolises and natural wonders makes it one of the world’s most in-demand travel destinations. The current exhibition at London’s Japan House, WOW: City Lights and Woodland Shade, explores the striking contrasts of the nation’s futuristic cityscapes against the quiet beauty of its landscapes. On Tuesday 12 March, join our event at Japan House as we discuss the incredible spots to visit in Japan, from the best parks in Tokyo to the spectacular misty lakes of Tohoku. 

Don’t rush off, join our after-work get togethers.

Top tips, advice, technical know-how, photo ideas… and a glass of something cheery. Our series of informal chats are tailored to fit in with your busy lives. Travel Geeks is just an hour long, and offers you the chance to hear from our experts, share a drink and join in the lively debate.
