Why is Japan so safe? Firstly, Japan places a solid priority on criminal behavior, with actions, such as, ATM’s inside structures or banks and the way that guns aren’t promptly accessible.
The ancient Japanese culture is truly fascinating, and it has been around longer then a millennium. Indeed, even to this day the way of life and legacy is exceptionally unmistakable in the country. During your visit in Japan you can gain a lot of knowledge by visiting castles, temples, shrines and many more there is to offer. Especially Kyoto which is a fantastic hot-spot if you want to truly experience the ancient Japanese culture.
Japan offers endless of delightful Buddhist sanctuaries and Shinto shrines located all throughout the country.
As I previously stated, Japan is a great blend of culture, history, and modern comfort. Skyscrapers, modern eateries, and anything else that can be found in the modern world may be found here. However, Japan has its own distinct, modern style that cannot be compared to that of any other modern country.
Japan is a very easy country to travel around
Japan’s public transportation system is extremely efficient! In this country, getting from one place to another is quite simple. You may see a lot in just a few days! In addition, the trains in Japan are extremely reliable. It’s nearly impossible for them to be late.
In Japan, everything is immaculately clean. Litter is never found on the streets, or anywhere else for that matter. Every hotel and lodging we visited smelt fresh and clean, and every restaurant table was meticulously wiped before we sat down.
Shibuya Crossing is a highly hip and exciting location in Tokyo. It is said to be one of the busiest intersections on the planet. It’s incredible to watch thousands of people crossing the street at the same time.
How is it that everything in Japan is so freaking adorable?! You’ll be astonished to see major corporations using the cutest characters in their advertisements. It’s just a part of Japanese culture for everything to be cute. If you’re a kawaii fan, you simply must travel to Japan!
We expected Japan to be pricey, and it is in comparison to most Asian countries. Fortunately, we discovered that Japan can still be readily explored on a shoestring budget! Of course, it all depends on your financial situation… However, we were able to do it on a daily budget of around 30 euros per person. We slept in an Airbnb for lodging, ate a lot of ramen (and even sushi!) and participated in a variety of activities. In Japan, many tourist attractions are free!
We discovered that transportation in Japan is the most expensive. We eventually decided to travel by train and looked for the cheapest train ticket possible.
Japan has some of the best food in the world
There’s more to Japan’s cuisine than ramen and sushi! Try the Okonomiyaki pancakes, which are cooked with cabbage and topped with a variety of ingredients. Anything from beef to seafood can be used! Soba noodles, Yakiniku BBQ, Tempura, Sukiyaki, Yakitori, and a whole lot more are some of the other foods to try in Japan…
Matcha-flavored treats are one of our favourites. And in Japan, you can get matcha in almost anything: chocolate, pastries, ice cream, and even burgers. For those unfamiliar, matcha is a type of green tea brewed from the finest tea leaves. The leaves are steamed before being dried and ground into a powder. It’s both nutritious and delicious!
Let’s chat about food for a little longer… Because, well, I enjoy food, and Japan is a fantastic destination for foodies. In Japan, KitKats come in a wide variety of flavours. Strawberry, pear, citrus golden blend, cinnamon cookie, strawberry cheesecake, wasabi, and a variety of other flavours are available. Yes, there’s also matcha! Try some of the wacky flavours for yourself!
In Japan, there are many cute themed eateries, such as Pompompurin Café, There are also themed eateries that are a little strange or insane. Take, for example, Tokyo’s Robot eatery or Harajuku’s Kawaii Monster Café (adorable and bizarre!).
Japan seemed strange to us at times. We can’t overlook the fact that it’s not quite like, say, Western Europe. All of the blown-up signs and other 3D models in the streets, maid cafes, and adult game halls. But it’s because of all of this that Japan is so awesome!
Japan offers a variety of natural attractions
Spring is one of the most popular periods to visit Japan. This is due to the spectacular pink cherry blossoms that line the streets. When spring arrives, however, not only the trees begin to bloom; everything else in Japan goes into “sakura” mode. Consider store-bought cherry blossoms, cherry blossom drinks, and even cherry blossom food.
Although Japan includes large, densely populated cities such as Tokyo, Kyoto, and Osaka, there is enough of natural beauty to be discovered. In reality, forested mountains and hills encompass about two-thirds of Japan! Waterfalls, volcanoes, mountains, and other natural wonders abound throughout Japan.
Mount Fuji is one of our favourite spots in Japan. It is a cultural site on the UNESCO World Heritage List and an iconic landmark. You can admire Mount Fuji’s grandeur from a variety of locations, and you may even climb Mount Fuji.
Do you have a thing for architecture? Beautiful architecture can be seen throughout Japan. The traditional Japanese style, in particular, is one-of-a-kind and aesthetically beautiful. The castles, temples, and shrines will undoubtedly appeal to you.
Deer can be seen freely walking the streets of Nara Park, and Snow Monkeys can be found in the Jigokudani Valley’s forest. However, Japan has a diverse range of wildlife, including tanuki (a type of raccoon), wild boars, squirrels, and more!
Japan gives you the feeling that you are a kid again
I last felt the same way as I did in Japan when I was a small child at Disney World. Not only are toys everywhere, but you won’t know where to look by strolling down the street! Everywhere you look, there is something to view. We were walking through Osaka one day when we noticed folks on the streets driving Mario Kart automobiles. Adults are reminiscing about their childhood!
If you’re an anime enthusiast, book your flight to Japan right now. Anime, manga, and video games all originated in Japan. The Tokyo Anime Center, Akihabara, J-World Tokyo, and Pokémon Mega Center Tokyo are some of the top places in Japan to watch anime.
We spent a great time in the Kawasaki Warehouse Arcade in Tokyo. It was truly one of the most amazing places I’d ever seen. In addition, there are many more gaming arcades and other locations to play games in Japan.
In Japan, the fun doesn’t stop with toys and game arcades; you may also enjoy karaoke! Karaoke is a kind of singing that originated in Japan and is liked by people of all ages there.
Japan is trendsetting when it comes to fashion
Japan’s traditional dress is, without a doubt, stunning. Consider the intricate features of a Geisha’s costume or the lovely materials used for kimono’s. However, there is a lot of trendsetting fashion in Japan’s big cities, such as Tokyo. Many locals can be seen going about in amazing fashions in districts like Harajuku and Shibuya.
Dress yourself as a geisha or get a kimono or yukata for yourself. Kyoto is one of the best venues to dress up in traditional Japanese garb. You hire a lovely kimono and go for a stroll through the city.
In the entire world, Japan has the largest density of vending machines. There are over 5.52 million vending machines in the country! You may obtain nearly everything from them, including coffee, tea, candies, soup, hot cuisine, and a variety of other items.
This list may go on forever. There is so much to see and do in this one-of-a-kind country. Japan, believe me, should be on your bucket list!
