Welcome to Asia

The continent home to the majority of the human population, Asia is the earth’s largest continent with a wide range of languages and religions. From 1 to 1800 A.D. China and India were considered the largest economies in the world and attracted many to the east. Asia consists of 48 UN member countries and 6 other states.

Tenkawa Village is hidden in the crevasses of mountainous terrain, densely covered in forest and teaming with glorious plants and animals. Japanese tourists have kept tight-lipped about this popular holiday destination for decades.

Even if you’re not a ‘park’ person, this must be on your travel itinerary. Shinjuku Gyoen is the most exquisitely pretty park in the Tokyo region - and it happens to be situated right next to city’s self-proclaimed underbelly, Shinjuku.
