The West is mystified by the land of the rising sun, and for good reason. Within mere decades of global upheaval, on a string of islands scarcely the size of Montana, this country of 127 million became the world's second biggest economy - without any discernible resource sector.

Indeed, Japan is as foreign as it gets (unless, of course, you're Japanese). The Western influence is here in a cartoonish kind of way - something the Elvises and break dancers can attest to - but complex layers of mores and customs continue to dominate the culture. It would take a lifetime to master them all, which is why so many visitors spend a lifetime coming back.

Accommodations run the gamut from Tokyo's sleek, ultra-modern towers to the pastoral idealism of Naoshima, a former fishing island.
