Climb Mount Fuji

Hiking fans alert! You can scale this iconic mountain on your next trip to Japan. As Japan's highest and most prominent mountain, Mt. Fuji offers an experience like no other – watching the sunrise from above the clouds.

Temple City: Historic Nara

For centuries the hub of Japanese culture, the lovely unspoiled city of Nara is home to a large number of historic buildings, along with important national treasures and works of art.

Jigokudani Monkey Park

Jigokudani Monkey Park is a famous hot spring area near Nagano,. The name Jigokudani (meaning “Hell’s Valley”), is due to steam and boiling water that bubbles out the frozen ground, surrounded by steep cliffs and formidably cold forests.


Kyoto

The concrete high-rises of downtown Kyoto can be disappointing, so head out towards the mountains to the surrounding neighbourhoods where you’ll find narrow stone streets, old wooden houses, monks in flowing robes, and the sounds of chanting and gongs from the many temples and shrines.

Jigokudani Yaen-koen (Nagano)

Jigokudani Yaen-koen, which is in a remote location deep in the mountains, is a habitat for wild Japanese macaque. The monkeys here are famous for soaking in the onsen (hot springs) in the winter.

Shibuya

The famous “Scramble Crossing” by Shibuya Station is without a doubt one of the most iconic sights of Tokyo. On an average weekday, this bustling intersection bears foot traffic levels as high as 2.8 million people.


Must-know Japan travel tips


Cash in Japan rules

Cash is king in Japan. Workers are usually paid in cash and most businesses and services, including restaurants and shops, accept only cash.

Book Accommodation

Japan is one of the most popular countries to travel in the world, so booking accommodation in advance of your trip is essential especially during high season as many hotels tend to be fully booked.

Trash cans are few and far between

You won’t find many public trash cans in Japan, so it’s handy to keep a plastic bag with you just in case.
