Japan is one of the most beautiful places you can go to. Japan successfully combines cultural traditions with technological advancement to have the economic giant we have today. A few hours off Tokyo, you’d get to visit Japan’s highest and most famous mountain, Mt. Fuji. You’d also get to cruise along Lake Ashinoko on the way to the Owakudani Ropeway. While in Tokyo you’d get to visit one of the oldest temples in Japan, the Asakusa Kannon Temple (Senso-ji). Japan also holds the record for the world’s second tallest structure and the tallest tower in the world with the Tokyo Skytree. There’s also the pride of Japan; the cherry blossoms. Everyone, from locals to tourists, goes on pilgrimages to eat picnics under the trees during the few days that they bloom. There are more than 1000 cherry blossom trees in Ueno Park in Tokyo while there are more than 600 in Osaka Castle’s garden, to the southeast. If plan to start your Japan tour from Osaka, you can drop by to admire the Kinkakuji temple with top two floors of this Zen temple are covered in gold leaf.
