    Tokyo Tower

    124 reviews

    This iconic landmark is one of many offering good views of the city. Not real need to prioritize but provides a nice back drop / gives you some anchoring as you explore the city. Watch out for Godzilla.

    The nexus of Tokyo's buzzing youth culture, Harajuku is an excellent place to shop, nosh, or - best of all - just people-watch. Fashionable and dolled-up teens are everywhere, including the numerous cosplay kids, a wonderfully Japanese phenomenon. Combines with a visit to the nearby Meiji Jingu Shrine.

    Tsukiji Fish Market

    80 reviews

    Busy place. Lots of people working and tourists = hard to get around. Fishermen can get pushing when they are in a hurry and tourists are in the way taking pictures.

    Temple of the Golden Pavilion (Kinkakuji)

    84 reviews

    Arrived at this temple after confusion with the driver over Ginkakuji vs Kinkakufi. Maybe it was the 40000 yen talking but this temple was nice but not a favorite. There are lots of buses and you can only go around in one direction and no going back. It took about 30 minutes and there is a lot of souvenirs at ...

    You can get you fortune told here. Of course this became the best place to visit after I received a very good fortune. I loved all of the shops with food and souvenirs on the way here.

    The epicenter of electronics culture in a country famous for its electronics, central Tokyo's Akihabara district is a fascinating place to see Japan's technology-obsessed culture taken to its logical extreme (to say nothing of also doing a little shopping). Megamarkets like Yodobashi Camera and Laox stock computers, cameras, phones, and accessories, while surrounding stores sell Gundam figures and a host ...

    Fushimi Inari Shrine

    41 reviews

    My favorite thing in all of Kyoto! The paths through the shrine are lined with varying sized orange gates all the way through. There is a two hour trail in the temple through the gates up into the rocky hills of this area. I walked the entire thing, there was almost no one out there (even in tourist season). It ...

The UNESCO inscription comprises 25 sites that reflect the variety of Fujisan’s sacred landscapes, including pristine lakes, springs, waterfalls, Sengen-jinja shrines, and Oshi lodging houses.

    Miyajima is one of the Nihon Sankei, one of the three most scenic places in Japan, and is definitely my favourite place. Miyajima is situated just outside Hiroshima and is reached by ferry. Miyajima is a place to enjoy in any season and I definitely recommend a visit to this beautiful island.

    Tokyo Disneyland

    26 reviews

    This is my favourite Disneyland! In Tokyo, the atmosphere is simple different. Love how the locals make an effort to play dress up; serious about having fun. I've been coming back repeatedly. Definitely a must! So is DisneySea.
