    123 reviews

    Its not the tallest in Tokyo anymore, but still fun to check out. Great views of the city and on a clear day you can see all the way to Mount Fuji. If you have 1 hour to spend, and like seeing the view of the city, check it out. Otherwise you're not missing much

    Temple of the Golden Pavilion (Kinkakuji)

    83 reviews

    The Golden Pavilion at Kinkakuji Temple is gorgeous. With the top two floors completely covered in gold leaf, with big reflecting pond in front of it and being surrounded by beautiful gardens it creates a picture perfect setting. Some practical tips: • The main photo spot right after you enter – from the front and the side of the pond ...

    Asakusa Shrine

    2-3-1 Asakusa, Tokyo, 13 111-0032 Japan
    69 reviews

    Tokyo is a hyper-modern city. But this ancient Shinto shrine in a more traditional neighborhood is where you want to come to see Old Japan without leaving the city limits. The gigantic vermilion lanterns, pots of smoking incense and stalls crammed with crazy souvenirs make it a scene, day or night.

    Located five minutes by rail from Tokyo Station, Tokyo, 13 110-0006 Japan
    70 reviews

    Gigantic electronic stores with gadgets you didn't know existed? Crazy maid cafes? A seven-story adult shop? Akihabara is overstimulating, but in a really fun way. Not really a place where you'll find a ton of locals, but still a fun place to lose a few hours.

    Between Imperial Palace and Tsukiji, Tokyo, 13 Japan
    52 reviews

    The main street in Ginza is another architectural showpiece street. There is of course restaurants and shopping but just viewing the buildings makes this area worthy of a visit. You can see Mikimoto 2 Building by Toyo Ito, Maison Hermes by Renzo Piano, Shiseido Ginza by Ricardo Bofill, Nicholas G Hayak Center by Shigeru Ban, and Louis Vuitton by Jun ...

    Fushimi Inari Shrine

    日本, 京都府京都市伏見区深草藪之内町68
    40 reviews

    I wish I had more time! It is a great walk - be prepared to climb a lot of stairs. Midway is a quaint tea shop. A stop here to reenergize and continue to the top is highly recommended. Many visitors stop at the beginning and take a lot of pictures... Trust me, continue going. The crowd will thin, the ...

    Roppongi Hills

    6-10-1 Mori Tower, Tokyo, 13 106-6155, Japan
    53 reviews

    Shopper's dream destination. So many places to shop at here, mostly on the higher-end range. As Americans, though, it's difficult to shop here, as even the largest sizes are like extra small to those from the States.

    Tokyo Disney Resort

    1-1 Maihama, Urayasu-Shi, 12 279-8511 Japan
    48 reviews

    This is a great place to go since it is only 20 minutes by train from Tokyo Central Station. They have 2 parks, we went to the DisneySea one since it is a little different than anywhere else. The Japanese love Disney and dress the part. Mickey & Minnie even speak Japanese. Yes there are crowds but still worth going.

    日本, 京都府京都市東山区清水1丁目−294
    40 reviews

    A must-see. Be ready for a little bit of uphill walk through the gorgeous, traditional streets with yummy snack stores along the way. The temple itself is a great architectural wonder with no nails used in its structure. Drink the water from the waterfall which represents longevity, love, and knowledge. The scenery around the temple and through the greenery makes ...

    Very busy area. Great view from Starbucks nearby. Lots of stores to check out. Not all affordable but there's a lot of places to browse.

    Mount Fuji

    36 reviews

    I got the 5th station by train and train and bus from Shinjuku Tokyo with three friends. After lunch I started to climb in the thin air and ice-cold temperature. I made the 御來光館 near the 8.5th station around PM 8 and soon enjoyed the very delicious dinner. The bed is so crowded to make me not sleep well, but ...

    Meiji Jingu Shrine

    1-1 Kamizono-cho, Tokyo, 13 151-0053 Japan
    35 reviews

    Very pretty area for pictures. Best to come in the morning when there is less people. Too many people by noon. Lots of weddings during Sunday mornings. Suggested donations in different areas of shrine.

    Osaka Castle

    1-1 Osakajo, Chuo-ku
    40 reviews

    While it might be a ferro-concrete reconstruction, this traditional medieval Japanese castle in the heart of Osaka makes a decent introduction to the form. Better yet, the park that surrounds it is quite pretty, and even if it's an effect you'll eventually see done better elsewhere, Japanese castles in general are simply cool enough that you're unlikely to really care.

    As clean and thoughtful Disney tokyo was it was pretty much a smaller version of California Disney! The only difference was this peppered, curry popcorn they sell!

It occupies huge territory and is surrounded by impressive walls and moats.

    Miyajima-cho, Miyajima cho, 34 739-0500 Japan
    28 reviews

    The famous 'floating torii' gate on the island of Miyajima is its major draw, and one of the most photographed sights in Japan. While this is one of the top tourist draws in the Hiroshima area, it is an unabashed tourist trap, and although the island has some nice short hikes, visitors are often left wondering what to do after ...

    Nijo Castle

    30 reviews

    Not all that impressive for a castle but believe it or not one of the most interesting features of the castle was actual the floors. They have what they call nightingale floors which creek louder the more softly you walk on them. The special floors acted as a alarm system so that you would know if someone was trying to ...
