Things to do in Japan
Kagoshima - visit the Senganen Gardens
A blend of Chinese and Japanese gardening techniques make the Senganen gardens some of the most attractive in Japan. Coupled with the views over the river this makes the gardens a must place to visit. Look out for the different festivals that are held here throughout the year. The garden is reputed to have been the place from which Moso Bamboo spread across Japan after the formation of the gardens in 1658.
Kobe - walk across Akashi Kaikyo suspension bridge
The world’s longest suspension bridge by a very long way is the Akashi Kaikyo Bridge linking Kobe with Awaji Island. Originally planned as a railway bridge it finally opened in 1998 as a road bridge. A walk across the bridge is possible but it is a long one and can be restricted if there are high winds. There is an option to walk across and take a ferry back.
Kyoto - take a trip to the fishing town of Arashiyama
Arashiyama, or Storm Mountain is appropriately named, due to the frequent, yet often short rainstorms in the area. Here there are opportunities to take a paddle boat out on the river or to take a hoke up into the hills. For a more relaxed view of the area why not take a trip on the tourist train which runs between March and December and return via river boat.
Nagoya - stroll Tsurumai Park
Tsurami Park is one of the best places in Japan to go and view the beautiful cherry blossoms that occur every year during March and April. Locals and tourists alike enjoy sitting beneath the trees in the evenings, when it is often cooler. This very pleasant park was opened in 1909 and also contains a rose garden and the Mnt Hachiman tomb.
Osaka - a nightlife adventure at Dotonbori
Dotonburi, or more accurately the canal in the area has been made famous by film makes for years with its neon signs. If you love your dining here is the place to go in the evenings to find a restaurant or bar. Traditional puppet shows also take place here giving an interesting blend of the ancient and modern. Also look out for the giant neon Glico Man dating back to 1935.
Osaka - fun day out at Universal Studios Japan
The only Universal Studio not in America Universal Studios Tokyo is everything that you can see back in the USA without all the travelling. Snoopy is the children’s favorite here and that is whom the children’s playground is named after although Hello Kitty is also all around. Very busy at the weekend it is a good idea to buy your tickets before going to the park.
Sapporo - attend an event at Sapporo Dome
There is always something to do in the Sapporo Dome whether it is watching a football or baseball match, looking around an exhibition or listen to international artistes performing concerts. The Dome is also home of the world’s first “hovering soccer stage” with the baseball field being replaced by the soccer pitch. The change from one to the other is worth watching.
Sapporo - experience a chair lift to the mountain peaks at Okurayama
The short 5 minute ride to the viewing point in the mountains at the Okurayama Ski Jump offers great views of the jump itself including the take off point whilst the viewing platform at the top offers great views of the city. The lift and viewing lounge are open all year round except the first 2 weeks of April and may be restricted during competition days.
Tokyo - experience local life with a Sunday visit to Yoyogi Park
Yoyogi Park has had a varied history from a Military airfield and the site of Japan’s first powered flight through to Olympic Village in 1964 and now is one of Tokyo’s largest city parks. On Sundays the park is filled with youths playing music, or just strolling around. Different parts of the park are “adopted” by groups some of which have been going there for over 20 years.
Tokyo - stroll around Hama Rikyu Gardens
One of Tokyo’s few saltwater gardens, the Hamarikyu Gardens are one of the oldest in the city and were thought to be created for a feudal lord in the 17th century. The gardens are so quiet, it is easy to loose track of time. Traditional Teashops can be found the in the gardens, one of them is centred in the middle of a pond.
Introduction of Japan
In a country of stark contrasts, Japan's hi-tech infrastructure and rich cultural heritage stand side-by-side, mesmerising millions of visitors each year in equal measure. In the north, Hokkaido and Tohoku's snowy climate means they are popular with skiers, while their hot springs are testament of the geothermal nature of these unstable islands. The biggest city in this region, Sapporo, even hosts a snow festival. Further south, the bustling and frenetic capital, Tokyo, features some of the best food, shopping and nightlife in the country. In the west of Honshu Island, those interested in history can explore two of the country's old capitals, Nara and Kyoto. Kyoto is considered to be Japan's cultural centre, while the somewhat lesser-known Nara was its first capital. Buddhist heritage can be seen around the city of Nara, which hosts one of the biggest Buddha images in the country. For scenic mountain views, the most famous and spectacular mountain, Mount Fuji, is located just outside Tokyo and set against the backdrop of Lake Kawaguchi. Japan hotels are notoriously expensive, but travellers on a budget can take the chance to stay in one of its renowned capsule hotels.
