In Japan, there is a unique mix that is rare between modernity and tradition. Immersing yourself in this reality is estranging and gratifying: we cradle the waters of the hot springs called onsen, welcomes us the bed on the floor in a ryokan, traditional inn, and intoxicates the technology of big cities like Tokyo.
Overlooking the Pacific and lapped by the East China Sea and the Sea of Japan that separates it from Korea, Japan is ready to welcome and surprise the tourist who enters and seeks spiritual refuge, to learn a culture utterly different from his.
Here are some points to keep in remembrance before going to japan holiday destinations.
Spring (from March to May) is the best season to visit Japan, characterized by clear skies and hanami, the splendid flowering of the cherry trees that color the whole island in pink. Also autumn (from September to November) is an excellent season for traveling, with pleasant temperatures and the colors of the beautiful Japanese countryside.
Not even a top 20 would be enough to list the landscapes and views not to be missed if you travel to Japan, so we recommend some that seem particularly beautiful and interesting:
- Tokyo, eclectic capital;
- Bamboo forest of Harashiyama, a magical oasis near the ancient capital of Kyoto, where long bamboo reeds stop in an unreal silence;
- Sanctuary of Fushimi Inari, with an expanse to domino di torii, entrance portals;
- Fuji-Hakone-Izu National Park, where the top of the highest mountain rises and you can see the lakes that surround it;
- Island of Miyajima/Itsukushima from the famous torii that seems to float on the water during the high tide and which is part of Itsukushima-jinja Shinto shrine;
- Jigokudani Monkey Park of Yamanouchi, where you can watch the cute-faced Japanese macaques that bathe in the hot springs in winter and are quickly approached by tourists.
TRAVEL TO TOKYO. WHAT ATTRACTIONS DO NOT MISS DURING THE HANAMI
Imperial Palace. The moat of the palace, Chidorigafuchi is surrounded by hundreds of cherry trees and is, therefore, one of the most popular destinations. The quiet oriental garden welcomes trees and flowers in memory of all the provinces, but Sakura completes the peaceful setting that hides the ruins of the Edo castle.
Sensoji Temple. During the visit to the Old City, in the Asakusa district, just take a walk in the park surrounding the temple to admire a garden out of time, an enchanted place with bridges, Sakura in bloom and carp swimming in the ponds.
Sumida river bank. While enjoying luxury destinations in japan you will immerse yourself entirely in the spring with its shores covered with cherry trees. On this river, there is the possibility of a pleasant cruise.
Ueno Park. The most significant park in Tokyo and among the oldest in the country. Inside are housed essential museums including the Tokyo National Museum, a zoo, and several temples. This area can count around 1,000 cherry trees and is ideal for relaxing, for a picnic or just enjoying the hanami.
Nakameguro district. A sophisticated and lively area of the city, a neighborhood of narrow riverside streets with organic cafes and vintage shops with about 4 km of Riverside that will brighten up your walk. In the evening the illuminated sakura creates a delicate and exceptional atmosphere.
