Whether you prefer the mountain to the sea, or vice versa, or like both, Croatia has a lot to offer: explore its magnificent National Parks or take a walk along the rivers, cruise from island to island from Pula to Dubrovnik (over a thousand islands!), from one cultural wonder to another, from one century to another, from one landscape to another, and from one piece of history to another. Whether you are looking for active travel, relaxation or cultural visits, Croatia has it for you.
Japan. The North. Winter. In this itinerary Matthieu Zellweger opens a door to the northern Japan during the season that fascinates him most: winter. Designed as an exploration of the further reaches of this far-flung country (Sapporo, Japanese Alps), it takes you from Hokkaido back to a cultural center of the country (Kanazawa) and then to the big city — Tokyo. This itinerary will offer you in turn modern and light aspects (the Snow Festival in Sapporo if the dates allow it), a fascinating and unfamiliar city (Hakodate), a total immersion into the harsh Japanese winter in Kakunodate before you marvel at the cultural beauties of the country further south in Kanazawa. Of course you will experience traditional Japanese inns (“ryokan”) as well as very contemporary places. Will you allow your curiosity to follow the path that Matthieu opens to the north of Japan in its most beautiful season ?
Japan is a mysterious and very attractive country where a guide will help you to understand the traditions, its history and its social codes. Mathieu invites you to experience his Japan – the places that draw him back, the cuisine he loves, the areas he enjoys to walk through. With Mathieu Japan reveals itself.
