The country is proud of a certain cultural exception. To see it for yourself, head to Tokyo to witness a sumo tournament and show your support for these giants on the tatami. To discover fighters from a more distant past, visit the medieval castle of Shuri. The seat of the kingdom of Ryukyu was protected by the legendary Samurai for many centuries. After so many emotions, take the time to slip into an onsen. These indoor and outdoor natural hot springs, hidden away in the mountainside, are highly popular, especially Hoheikyo Onsen in Hokkaido. And here you are, ready to take on the Hokkaido ski trails, just a few minutes from your Club Med Tomamu Hokkaido and Sahoro Hokkaido resorts; that is, unless you prefer to make the most of your all inclusive stay in Japan to chill out on the beaches of the Okinawa Archipelago and your Club Med Kabira Ishigaki, just to remind you that heaven might just be a place on Earth.
