Once you have chosen the best internet package option for you, it’s time for you to select your destinations in Japan. Famous for both its natural beauty and culture, here are just 3 destinations that you cannot miss when having a vacation in Japan.
The Fushimi Inari Temple or Fushimi Inari Taisha is one of the most popular places for tourists to visit while in Kyoto. The temple, also known as the Thousand Gates Temple, is famed for its bright orange torii. Thanks to its one-of-a-kind appearance, it is a famous place for tourists to take photos.
Fushimi Inari Temple is also one of the important sites for Shinto teachings in Kyoto, having been built in 711 AD. Should you decide to visit, try to schedule it around one of the major events, such as the Hatsu-uma festival in February or the Inari Festival in April.
No trip to Japan is complete without the obligatory visit to the iconic Tokyo Skytree building. This 634-meter tower is the highest transmitter in both Japan and the world. From the two observation platforms—the 350-meter Tembo Deck and the 450-meter Tembo Galleria—you can honestly see and appreciate the beauty of this world-famous city.
There is an abundance of other activities to be done at the tower too, such as visiting the fish at the Sumida Aquarium, visiting the Pokemon center, and shopping at Tokyo Solamachi. This should all be closed with a tour of the culinary kind at one of the restaurants at Tokyo Solamachi’s 3rd floor.
A true icon of Japan, Mount Fuji is an awe-inspiring place to visit. It is the highest mountain in Japan, standing at an impressive 3.776 meters above sea level. It's perfectly symmetrical, snow-covered peak charms tourists and ensures the holy landmark is thoroughly revered by all those who come to see it. Such is its beauty, it has been named as a World Heritage Site by UNESCO.
Mount Fuji sits on the border between the Yamanashi and Shizuoka Prefectures. To best see and appreciate its beauty, you should visit the Chureito Pagoda or the top of Tenjo. Be sure to come in the morning, and hope for sunny weather to see the mountain fully.
