Japan is haven for trendsetters, for those who love modern art and for those who seek to balance the Yin and Yang. We love Tokyo and its urban-electric universe, vibrating and sparkling. We also like to laze around in the ancient capital imperial, Kyoto, home of arts and geisha, tea and ikebana. We find refuge in Naoshima.
