Say konnichiwa to Fuji-san

Japan's mountainous landscapes, hidden valleys, traditional gardens, onsens (hot springs), and ancient temples are bewitching. (Hanging out naked in hot springs with strangers may be confronting initially but it's supremely relaxing once you, well, relax!) Kyoto is stacked with 17 World Heritage sites, 1600 Buddhist temples and more than 400 Shinto shrines: it's a cultural gem. One of the best times to plan a holiday to Japan is in March–April: it's not too hot and cherry blossom season delights all who witness it. 'Golden Week' is late April–early May and everyone takes a holiday domestically then, so steer clear of that period if you can.
