Huge department stores brim with shoppers, neon flashes from dusk to dawn, and the entire world pays heed to the slightest fluctuation on the Nikkei Index. From the Imperial Palace and Meiji Shrine to the fabled Ginza district, 20th-century Tokyo is an intriguing composite of East and West. Yuppies sporting Walkmen bow formally in greeting. Women in kimonos and Dior suits stroll side-by-side. Geishas play samisens while disc jockeys play the Top Forty. Japanese houses of wood and paper stand in the shadow of towering steel and mortar. Not far away, one of the world's most impressive sights soars 12,388 feet to its snow-clad peak: Mount Fuji, the majestic symbol of Japan.

Vladivostok is capital of the Maritime Territory, in southeastern Russia, on Golden Horn Bay, an inlet of the Sea of Japan. Vladivostok is the terminus of the Trans-Siberian Railroad, Russia's major Pacific seaport, and the main base of their Pacific fleet.

Korsakov

Although Korsakov and the Sakhalin District owe their existence to the less-than-glamorous industries of fishing, coal and oil, the typically Russian cities of this peninsula have always managed to sneak in a little fun, even during the height of Communism. Amid the Lenin statues and austere buildings, colorful flowers add cheer to the city streets, and lively markets offer brightly hued fruits and vegetables that make it from the hinterland to the table in just a matter of hours.

The extravagant tastes of the Czars extended all the way to the Russian Far East, which lured with the promise of caviar, sable and mink. Today, the draw to Petropavlovsk-Kamchatsky is volcanoes—some dormant, some active—rising majestically from a chromatic tundra.

Dutch Harbour is a port in the Aleutian Islands. Geologically, the archipelago is a continuation of the Aleutian Range, which is on the Alaskan mainland, and contains a number of volcanic peaks. Few trees, all of stunted growth, are found, but grasses grow in abundance. Although a few good harbours are found in the archipelago, navigation is dangerous because of almost perpetual fog and numerous reefs.
