From nature to man’s creations, the next stop is Tokyo where you’ll find leading advancements in technology, robotics and AI. From Mount Fuji the Shinkansen bullet train takes only half an hour – and is guaranteed to arrive exactly on time.
Once in Tokyo the sights are diverse but if you’re looking for dinner with a twist why not try Robot Restaurant. Located in the Kabukicho red-light district, you can sit and enjoy a cabaret performance featuring flashing lights, techno music and dancing robots. Both quirky and confusing, the night will certainly be one to remember.
Rather than walking or using public transport to see the city of Tokyo let your imagination take hold in a real life Mario Kart race. Mari Mobility lets you drive around the streets of Tokyo in a GPS-enabled custom-built go-kart, wearing the costume of your favourite Mario character (costumes provided by the company). Being led through three designated courses, the go-karts can reach speeds of 60km/h. Since you’ll be driving on the road you’ll need to bring an international driver’s licence along with your Nintendo skills.
After an activity-heavy holiday why not relax and take the time to enjoy other Japanese creations – such as beer. The city of Sapporo has been producing beer since 1877. Over a century later – and now an official heritage site – the Sapporo Beer Museum opened its doors to promote the craft of beer-making. From the building to the produced goods, the museum allows for an immersive experience.
So, for the ultimate getaway that appeals to everyone’s tastes, visit Japan and all its wonders.
