Japan is a wonderful country rich in art, culture, fashion and food. It is a must-visit for everyone’s travel bucket list and at the same time a world traveler’s paradise.

I’ve been to Japan around four times and just recently, my husband Tom and daughter Aryanna just visited the Land of the Rising Sun last Summer. We all love Japan and we’re planning a family trip soon.

Who else loves to travel to Japan?

We’re all in luck because there’s the new BDO JCB Platinum Credit Card to help us out in all of our Japan getaway!
