Check out these popular destinations in Japan:
Kyoto is Japan's most sacred city, and it is usually listed as one of Japan's most popular tourist destinations, for good reason. In Kyoto, you will feel the strong Japanese traditional culture.
If you visit all the sights of Kyoto, it will take several months to see everything. However, temples such as Gongshui Temple, Kinkakuji Temple, Ginkakuji Temple, and Arashiyama Bamboo Grove are all places that make people feel comfortable.
Tokyo, the capital of Japan, is a bustling and vibrant city, and is usually the first stop for tourists. It is easy to spend a few days in Hong Kong eating fresh seafood, visiting many museums, and admiring skyscrapers. Shibuya Crossing is nicknamed "The Scramble" because it gets crowded at all times.
Customs unique to Japan can be seen everywhere in the city. In Harajuku, you may see Japanese fashionistas walking on the street like models, buying their clothes, watching anime series, and reveling in the colorful colors around you. Thousands of tons of fish are traded at Tokyo's Tsukiji Market every day, where you can buy the freshest fish. If there are too many people, the city’s dozens of temples, shrines and palaces will provide you with a peaceful haven.
Osaka is more than just a port city; it provides a variety of entertainment activities for tourists. Universal Studios Japan, Osaka Castle Park, and Osaka Aquarium Kaiyukan are all Osaka. Dotonbori is the city’s central business district, full of vitality, with billboards, restaurants and shops lined up on both sides of the street. The Children’s Square is an excellent place for children to fully express their creativity, with a dressing area, hands-on science projects and plenty of play space.
You can see Mount Fuji from the distance of Hakone, a mountainous area with hot springs and tranquil atmosphere. You can enjoy a traditional hot spring bath for a truly unique experience. Hakone Shrine at the end of Lake Ashinoko is a breathtaking crater lake where visitors can find peace.
