Japan is definitely a country that’s moved forward without forgetting its heritage – and there’s nowhere better to appreciate that than any Japanese city. Take Tokyo’s Asakusa district. Emerging from the tall buildings, you’ll feel like you’ve turned back the clock a few decades as you walk along the low-lying streets of traditional shops, houses, ancient shrines and teahouses. Although more common in Kyoto, Asakusa’s Kannonura Street is one of the few places in Tokyo where you can still see geisha in traditional make-up. And then there’s Osaka’s old town of Kishiwada. Here, you’ll walk side streets that haven’t changed in decades, home to family-owned confectioners, grocers and tea brewers.
