LVDQ suggestion: To dream a little of Japan, we invite you to listen online in the comfort of your home, for only $7.99 on the Aventuriers voyageurs website, the magnificent Japanese-inspired film: from sumos to robots .

film about Japan by the Aventuriers VoyageursHere is the description:Often forgotten by Canadian tourists who often think it is too expensive or too far away, Japan nevertheless offers the best of travel, a very comfortable but always exotic country. A remote archipelago, Japan has forged its own identity. This film, all in contrast, offers you an itinerary combining tradition and modernity, urban planning and tranquillity. It is possible to discover traditional Japan there with the superb Buddhist temples and Zen gardens of Kyoto, Nara and Myajima, stays in ryokan (typical inns) and performances of traditional Japanese art, such as geisha dancing. You will also be confronted with its more modern history with the resilient Hiroshima. The contrasts continue on a stroll through Tokyo,

one of the most fascinating metropolises on earth where it is possible to attend a sumo tournament one day and a spectacle of dancing robots the next. Finally, the landscapes also reflect this difference as the snow-capped Japanese Alps and amazing winter festivals follow the volcanic coastline of the Izu Peninsula and the beaches of Naoshima Island. This film is the story of an encounter with a surprising culture which, despite its reserved and efficient appearance, always has a surprise and an extraordinary experience in store for us!

Visit Japan with the Japan Rail Pass

This pass is multi-use for transportation within Japan. It is mainly used to travel with the famous high-speed trains (TGV) that the Japanese call Shinkansen. It can also be used for some local transport, such as the JR Loop in Tokyo or the one in Osaka. These TGVs cross the country from one end to the other at lightning speed and they are an excellent alternative to the plane or the bus in terms of quality and price.
