Well, most of the new comers in Japan always search for vacation attraction in Japan, tourist spots in Japan and places to go and hang out in Japan, Tokyo and other places in Japan. When I came here in Japan for the first time, I could not find information from any traveler or real experience from any individual rather than some business information from the travel agents. Therefore, I decided to write this article so that it may be of any help to the new visitors to Japan.
Let me put in the point by point fashion so that you do not need to spend much time gathering your information. Below is the list of some vacation attractions in Japan.
1. Tokyo Disneyland – Disney Resort
I think I do not need to say anything about Disneyland Resort of Tokyo because everyone knows about this place. But if you are looking for some happening place in Tokyo to enjoy the night life, then the Tokyo Tower and Ropangi Ropangi are two places where you can find crowd and in Roppongi bars open through out the night.
Osaka is famous for the historical monuments and many beautiful and well reserved old building. If you want to spend some boring vacation with your vacation, then you can opt. for the old building but there are many great things that you can enjoy in Osaka like the Universal Studios, Osaka. You can see Universal Studios in only few places and therefore you should miss the chance to go there if you come to Japan.
Hiroshima and Nagasaki are the two most famous and old ports of Japan. Everyone knows about these two ports because of the unfortunate incidents happened during the World War. There are War memorials in these places and you can make a trip to these places as you know these are the only places where atom bomb was dropped till now.
Kyoto is another popular city for historical importance in Japan. You will find many historical monuments which are well reserved till now. I am not interested in enjoying the historical places and therefore I have not gone there. I will share with you once I have been there once.
Nagoya: This is another important city in Japan because of the Nagoya port, Nagoya Castle and Nagoya Roller Coaster. Dolphin show in the Nagoya Port Aquarium is just awesome but you may experience the talent of Dolphin in other place also. But the rides of Nagoya Roller Coaster is horrible and if you want to experience one of the most dangerous rides ever in your life, then Nagoya Roller Coaster is the right place to experience something scary. Then Nagoya Castle is famous for the Golden fish structure at the top of the historical building. And this is something related to the three Kings of Nagoya who once ruled this Nagoya City.
Some important information:
Traveling through Densha (Electric Train) and Subway is so easy in Japan. You will find the timing, map and the station information in all the station. Also there is ticketing machine in all the station and even you can book the ticket of Shinkansen instantly at the station only. Shinkansen – Bullet Train network is just awesome and so traveling would not be a problem in Japan using their Electric Trains and Shinkansen. Shinkansen is bit costlier than normal Electric Train. In November, the leaves of the trees start turning orange, then red from green as a preparation to face the winter. But the streets and the scenaries are beautiful during this period.
Year End and New Year Holidays – Around December 29 to January 4
Golden Week Holiday – Around May 3 – 6
Bon Holidays – August 13 – 15
During these holidays, you will find over crowded in streets, tourist spots and vacations places. And also it may be expensive during these holidays so you plan accordingly.
