    Tokyo Tower

    4-2-8 Shiba-Koen, Tokyo, 13 105-0011 Japan
    4.5
    123 reviews

    I'm not sure why Tokyo needs something that looks vaguely like the Eiffel Tower, but it's a good landmark nonetheless.

    Harajuku

    Area around Harajuku Station, Tokyo, 13 150-0001 Japan
    4.5
    97 reviews

    The Harajuku cosplay, i.e. girls all dressed up in outrageous costumes, is a passing trend. You don't see many girls like Gwen Stefani's any more. The street is very crowded with tourists, not Harajuku girls. The stores still offer some pretty strange costumes.

    Tsukiji Fish Market

    Tsukiji, Chuo, Tokyo, Japan
    4.5
    80 reviews

    Tsukiji Fish Market is the largest fish market in Asia, or maybe even the world. While its main function is to supply most of the seafood consumed in Tokyo (and that’s a lot!) through wholesale shops, it’s an amazing place to visit for anyone interested in exploring markets while traveling. The main attraction, in my opinion, is the tuna auction. ...

    Temple of the Golden Pavilion (Kinkakuji)

    Japan
    4.5
    83 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 ...

    Asakusa Shrine

    2-3-1 Asakusa, Tokyo, 13 111-0032 Japan
    4.5
    68 reviews

    This is a huge temple and one of the oldest in Japan. The temple itself is beautiful and interesting to visit, but the fun part is the quarter mile long street of vendors selling all kinds of food and crafts in front of the temple.

    Akihabara

    Located five minutes by rail from Tokyo Station, Tokyo, 13 110-0006 Japan
    4
    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.

    Fushimi Inari Shrine

    日本, 京都府京都市伏見区深草藪之内町68

    41 reviews

    Love the visual impact and spritual nature of this walk through the torii in the forest. The train was super easy but hard to confirm as correct. I ended up on one where there wasn't alot of English but it was all good. The train stops right in front of the shrine and you begin your colorful ascent past the ...

    You could pretty much find any upper class store in this area. There LV, Gucci, Prada.. all those along the main strip. We even went to a 4 storey A&F there.

    Roppongi Hills

    6-10-1 Mori Tower, Tokyo, 13 106-6155, Japan
    4
    53 reviews

    Great place to get a sense of the city, as Roppongi Hills is situated on a hill overlooking the city and Tokyo Tower. The Roppongi area used to be the base of SCAP following WWII, and you can still see the impact of the American presence there. Go to the Observation Deck of Mori Building. Also - There are a ...

    Kiyomizudera

    日本, 京都府京都市東山区清水1丁目−294
    5
    40 reviews

    Probably the most iconic of Kyoto's temples. A must see. The street leading up to the temple is also incredibly picturesque. There is also a graveyard nearby that is worth exploring. The graveyard is a little bit out of the way but worth the detour.

    Climbing the mountain was a hugh highlight of my trip to Japan, it was a tough climb so isn't for the feint hearted! But it was really rewarding and a varied climb. Definitely a must if visiting the country.

    This was a lovely stroll. Not too hard, very pretty temple. We caught the tail end of a ceremonial procession, which was very interesting. It's not hard to get to, is right next to a subway and very close to Harajuku!

    Osaka Castle

    1-1 Osakajo, Chuo-ku
    4
    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.

    Reached there when it opened and came out after it closed. Its too much fun. Best attractions - Space Mountain, the parades and the fireworks. Don't forget to click a photo next to million smiles. Avoid weekends. Vegetarians - carry own food.

    Normally, only a part of the complex is open to the public. For a few days of the year, it it possible to be taken further inside the palace grounds. One of them is the New Year's address.

    The castle does have some fairly extensive gardens one can walk around in. Other than that, it seems like a fairly typical Japanese castle complex.

    Come see Tokyo's newest attraction. At 634m high, this is the tallest tower, and second tallest structure in the world. It's quite an amazing sight to see. If viewing it at night, make sure you come before 11pm as the lights are shut off after that.
