Japan is great choice for your vacation destination. Here you can find some Japan travel guide especially how to choose beautiful places and event when you visit Japan.
List of beautiful places in Japan travel guide you should visit:
Tokyo is the capital city of Japan and a major global economic power in itself. For the techno whizz there are gadgets galore in Akihabara, while for the culturephile there are tea ceremonies, local festivals and Japanese Gardens dotted all round.
The old capital and traditional heart of the country, Kyoto oozes history and charm with that extra special dash of Japanese elegance. Kinkakuji, Ryoanji, Niji-jo… the list goes on and on with shrines, temples, and other historic places to see. Must sees are Kinkakuji – the Golden Temple, Kyo Mizu Dera – a temple that sits on the hillside on huge wooden stilts, and Nijojo – Nijo Castle complete with nightingale floorboards made in the days of the Shogun. You will want to visit here for at least 3-4 days. There are also great river restaurants and if you visit Japan in spring you will love the Philosopher’s Walk with all the lined up cherry trees!
A couple of hours away from Tokyo is Hakone. Here you can take in glorious views of Mount Fuji (best viewed in winter when the air is clear), go walking in the hills, or take a pirate boat trip across the lake. While you’re here, take the cable car and jump off at a station named Owakudani. As you get off you’ll notice lots of steaming vents around you thanks to the volcanic nature of the area.
A tropical paradise set way down in the south of Japan, Okinawa was, for a long time, considered to be separate from Japan. A visit to this area should include your bathing gear, your sunnies and if you drive, it’s worth renting a car. There are also some great dive sites and if you want a complete get away from it all, try some of the smaller islands close by.
