Japan: Mysteries of the Red Dragon

Japan: Mysteries of the Red Dragon

Japan is one of the most compelling and yet closed countries of the world. Many mysteries of Japanese mentality remain veiled for Europeans. In order to acquaint our audience with the ancient Japanese traditions, our expedition travelled to the Shinto temple, where foreigners were not allowed until recent years.  Shintoism is the traditional Japanese religion connected closely to the nature. You will be able to visit the Shinto celebrations, get to know Gods of Shinto, and experience different rituals. Japanese say that real celebration is “expecting something unseen to appear”. Wedding ceremonies, mediaeval castles that were built during the Samurai’s wars – all this will lead you to the top of the Fuji Mountain – every Japanese has to climb there at least once during his life.
