The journey starts

Tokyo
  • largest city in the world
  • over 36 million citizens
  • most best-rated restaurants in the world
  • Shibuya Crossing is the busiest spot

The capital of Japan is also the city with the most inhabitants in the world and is usually the first point of contact with Japan for visitors to the country. Here, more than in any other place in the country, one can observe the famous union of modernity and traditional culture.

The highest point

Mount Fuji
  • tallest mountain in Japan
  • the "mountain" is actually a volcano
  • the "volcano" is actually three volcanos
  • Ascending the 3776 meter tall mountain takes about 4-8 hours
  • not many tourists get there

Mount Fuji is one of the country's landmarks and, with its snow-covered white peak, the highest mountain in Japan. It offers an impressive panorama from every side in the lowlands around it and invites you to take day tours around the peak or to view it from numerous restaurants, lakes and hotels in the vicinity. On the route from Lake Kawaguchi near Mount Fuji to Kyoto, there is an ideal stop for the perfect picture. From here you can see Mount Fuji in all its glory and in front of it is a vast panorama of tall grasslands. Perfectly suited for a shoot to set the scene for the Mercedes Benz G63. Together with Hannah Hofinger, it became a short but very aesthetic and effective shoot and the result is something to be proud of.

Cultural highlight

Kyoto
  • has been Japan's capital for over 1000 years
  • inhabits over 1000 Buddhist temples
  • here you will find 17 world heritage sites
  • also, has the most landmarks in Japan

Kyoto is considered to be the cultural highlight of Japan and is, next to Tokyo, the most popular place for tourists. Both the many holy places, historical buildings and landmarks, as well as the city centre, the restaurants and people here invite for extensive exploration.

Culinary stopover

Fukuoka
  • one of the fastest growing cities in Japan
  • over 9000 restaurants
  • a centre for gourmets
  • one of the youngest average ages in Japan

This young and modern city should not be missed on a trip through the country. The legendary gourmet scene invites you to visit the restaurants or the evening street food markets.

Excursion into nature

Takachiho Gorge
  • the gorge was formed over 100,000 years ago
  • one of the most popular destinations for Japanese tourists
  • formed by volcanic eruptions

Coming from Fukuoka, this gigantic gorge invites for a day trip or even a stopover on the way to Kagoshima. The small natural wonder is best explored from the many bridges, a walk or a boat ride.

Nature paradise

Yakushima Island
  • UNESCO World Heritage since 1993
  • 42% of the island is designated as a national park
  • famous for its moss forests

Yakushima Island is the final destination of our trip and a real highlight in Japan! The island is not for nothing a UNESCO World Heritage Site, due to its unique nature. With daily walks and some outdoor activities, a few days can be filled here in an unforgettable way.

Breathtaking Landscapes and sights

Hong Kong thrives on contrasts. Around seven million inhabitants call the city home. In centuries-old districts, the contrasts between eastern customs and western lifestyle are deliberately lived and cultivated. Gigantic skyscrapers frame incense-filled temples, and futuristic shopping malls sit alongside bustling street markets. Just as diverse as Hong Kong's vibrant culture are its taste experiences. With more than 15,000 restaurants, the city has one of the highest restaurant densities in the world. But Hong Kong has another side to it - just minutes beyond the world-famous skyline, it turns green. About 40 percent of Hong Kong's land is protected.
