  • Comments

Located in the east side of South Korea and Russia, Japan is an archipelago of nearly 7,000 islands with four largest ones namely Hokkaido, Honshu, Shikoku and Kyushu. The Ryukyu Islands, which includes Okinawa, lie to the south of Kyushu.

One of the most beautiful places in the world, Japan features four distinct seasons, each gorgeous in its own way. You’ll fall in love with the cherry blossoms in the spring and the colorful vibrancy of autumn leaves. Due to its extended geographical location, the far north and south of Japan sometimes have contrasting climates at the same time. The country’s iconic landmark – a snow-capped mountain of Fuji (Fujisan) – represents the serenity and strength that underpins Japan’s everyday life.

Things to do and see in Japan

Japan is one of the most popular destinations in Asia shore excursions. The land of Sakura provides a plenty of things and places to discover including cultural villages, heritages, religious sites, landmarks, and attractions that we would like to some typical activities below.

Climb Mount Fuji

Shimizu shore excursions The symbol of Japan – Mount Fuji – is the must-include in any Shizuoka shore trip. Be listed in UNESCO World Heritage Sites, the mountain has the shape of a pyramid with the top covered by beautiful white snow. If you want to get closer, climb the mountain to feel the emotionally moving. The best time to visit the Mount Fuji is from July to September when the weather is not too cold and lack of rainy.

Hot-Tubbing Monkeys

Even in winter, the pool is filled with hot spring water which provides a warm place for monkeys playing happily. Admire funky monkeys jumping from the pillar into the water is a lovely image that you can be unavoidably from laughing at the mischievousness of them.

Eating ramen

Any restaurant serves ramen Of course, ramen becomes popular nowadays that you can find in many places around the world. But eating ramen in its country will bring to you the completely strange experience. There are three main reasons leading ramen ranked first place in the list of the most favorite Japanese food for foreigners, over sushi and tempura. The first reason is a delicious soup made from chicken, pork, and beef bones, shellfish, or even vegetables which combine into one, create a sweet soup without sugar. The next secret is noodles. The perfect noodles for a savory bowl of ramen have to have the exactly correct thickness, shape and are cooked in the right way with nice timing. Last but not less, the lusciousness of ramen depends on not only the way they cook but also the way you eat. Japanese usually slurp the ramen. It can be considered as an impolite action in Western and American culture, but it will slay your taste. The flavor can be much better and nail every diner.

Take a trip to a castle

Every place in Japan It is not hyperbole that Japan is the land of ancient castles. Although many repairs have been done, Japan still maintains several ancient structures from over 400 years ago. During this period, Japan consisted of dozens of small independent states leading to each Emperor have to build an inviolable structure to pretend their family and civils from enemy’s attacks. Among several castles in the whole country, the Himeji Castle is the most popular one which is also the most pristine structure that reveals the traditional Japanese architecture. Moreover, Japan has a plenty of beautiful castles including Matsumoto Castle, Nagoya Castle, Osaka Castle, Matsue Castle, Hirosaki Castle, Hikone Castle, and much more. Every castle has its own features and beauties. Some are spectacular by cherry blossom trees surrounding, while others have priceless historical meanings. However, all of them are designed following the featured Japanese style.

Pray for peace

Hiroshima Peace Memorial Museum - Hiroshima shore excursions This country is the only one in the world destroyed by atomic bombs. The two bombs were dropped on the land of Nagasaki and Hiroshima where a Peace Memorial was built soon after to remind about the victims of the bloody war. Besides the memory meaning, the Museum is covered with trees, lawns, and peaceful walking paths. The A-Bomb Dome served as a place to promote Hiroshima’s old industries. It was one of a few buildings that can stand through the bomb explosion and then is listed in UNESCO World Heritage Sites. Nearby, the Cenotaph for the A-Bomb Victims with an arched design is the tomb holding a register for the names of the victims died by the bomb.

Stroll along Otaru Canal

Otaru shore excursions Was formerly a center of the old city’s port in the first half of the 20th century, Otaru canal served as a huge complex of warehouses containing the goods transferred by small boats. When they applied modern technology to the transportation, the canal was not used for trading purpose anymore. Thanks to the actions of local people, the canal was restored beautifully and touristy. Stroll along the canal to admire the showcase creating by amateur artists performing traditional dances, folk music, paint portraits, and so on. In the evening, when the vintage gas lamps are lighted up, the area is breathtaking with the romantic atmosphere and poetry picture of numerous fireflies jumping mischievously above the surface of the idyllic canal.
