Interesting fact
Do you know that more than 70% of Japan consists of mountains, including more than 200 volcanoes? What is more, there are around 1,500 earthquakes every year here. So if you are looking for Japan round trips, ask yourself if you really know the country you are heading to. Though Japan tours are very popular today, not many people know that, for example, raw horse meat is a popular food here or that Japanese couples celebrate Christmas as we celebrate Saint Valentines Day.
