- Inside Japan Tours presents Japan Heritage sites

As the world continues its battle against the novel coronavirus, many people 
are finding comfort in planning the vacations they want to take after the 
pandemic subsides. They imagine a leisurely stay in some far-off land, which 
naturally turns their minds to the ancient nation of Japan. 

The British travel firm Inside Japan Tours has therefore teamed with Japan's 
Agency of Cultural Affairs to launch a blog series introducing Japan Heritage, 
a diverse selection of cultural properties designated by the agency that range 
from some of this nation's most famous locations to hidden gems almost unknown 
to the rest of the world. This vibrant, detailed series will transport you to 
these fascinating places, shaped by the natural beauty and long history of 
Japan, and help you prepare for the in-person travels we all hope to make soon.
