For years my number one destination. I go at least three times a year sometimes up to two months. I lived here in 09. As Anthony Bourdain says, it will blow your mind. Tokyo makes New York look like Duluth, Minnesota. The eating out, drinking - there are so many hidden bars and restaurants, you cannot imagine. I love the ...

An amazing city to see! Growing up outside of New York City Tokyo is the only place in the world I've ever been with a similar feel to NYC. There are so many unique things this city has to offer I can't even begin to list them all here.

One of the world's truly special and distinctive cities. If you haven't visited Kyoto, you haven't visited Japan. Tokyo may win for urban hipness and nightlife but Kyoto is the place to rediscover old Japan. If you want a shot at serenity, avoid Kyoto during peak Japanese holiday periods.

Osaka lacks the history of Kyoto and the style of Tokyo but as a working man's city it can be a cultural breath of fresh air. The people here are a bit more open, honest, and commercial. There is excellent food but the cultural attractions lag behind other parts of Japan making this a nice to see but not an ...

Hiroshima is the most prominent city in the Chogoku Region of Honshu, Japan's main island. Known for the horrific destruction, when the first atomic bomb was dropped here in 1945, many of the city's main attractions are related to that tragedy. A visit to Hiroshima is not complete without seeing Hiroshima Castle & Shukkeien Garden (both reconstructed after the war), ...

Nothing prepared me for how amazingly beautiful the island of Hokkaido could be in summer. The lavender fields outside Bie, the clear volcanic lake of Mashu-ko, and the velvet green forests of Rishiri and Rebun islands were all incredible memories for me. So was the fishing port of Hakodate and the Ainu villages of the interior of the island. Oh, ...

With excellent beer and outstanding ramen and seafood (crab and salmon especially, though it'll hurt your wallet), Sapporo is synonymous in the mind of many Japanese with eating, but it's also an attractive city of parks with an outstanding Winter Festival where the northern character of the city really shines. Best of all, unlike much of Hokkaido, it's directly accessible ...

To see some of the oldest and most impressive, yet still serene temples in the Kyoto/Osaka region, take a day trip to Nara. Best known for the herds of deer that seem to graze wherever they feel like it, Nara's temples are just as photogenic. If you stay for dinner after most of the day trippers go home, or get ...

Just a short train ride from Tokyo takes you to this area known for its onsen, hot springs. Many people visit on a day trip but staying at one of the ryokans is the best to really enjoy the onsen and traditional inn experience.

Once you've done the "must-see" areas of Tokyo and want a bit of a respite from the bustle and lights, I would definitely recommend going to Yokohama. It's about 30 minutes outside of Tokyo and very accessible. There are a lot of cute, slightly posh areas like Motomachi, where you can shop or duck into a cafe with amazing Japanese ...

Known primarily for its beachside location, local variety of ramen, and its status as a destination for 24-hour party people, Fukuoka is merely okay. The beaches, while pretty, are nothing special, and the city center has little in my experience to differentiate it from any of a dozen other Japanese big cities. The rich, fatty tonkatsu ramen, however, really IS ...

Great place for for people going to Disneyland and Disney Sea but its about an hour commute to the Greater Tokyo area. Not much food choices other than the hotels and Ikspiari Mall.

So I'm the first to review this place eh? Narita is a little town that has been built up around the Naritasan temple and the Narita International Airport in Japan. The temple itself is gorgeous and quintessentially Japanese, but not much of a novelty if you've been to other parts of Japan (from what I hear). I had the chance ...
