Top Attractions in Japan Every Tourist Should Visit

If you are planning a trip to Japan, you are probably going on a visit that you only take once in a lifetime. While in Japan, you will want to take advantage of seeing all the top spots in the least time possible.

There are not that many places in the world that have the kind of mystique that Japan does. Even though Japan has gained a lot of attention in the past few decades due to its booming economic success, there is still a lot about Japan that remains unknown. To really find out what Japan is all about, you will have to take the time out to visit the place. If you are planning on taking a trip to Japan, a great way to begin your journey is by visiting some of the top attractions Japan offers.

MOUNT FUJI



Mount Fuji is one of the most photographed locations in Japan. This famous attraction is one that will make the entire trip worthwhile. July and August is the official climbing season months for Mount Fuji. Because this is such a hot spot for tourists, you will never find yourself climbing alone. If you should decide to climb the mountain, it is best to head out early in the morning so that you can reach the top when the sun has completely risen. Because of the inclement weather, climbing is discouraged during the winter months of October through May.

THE IMPERIAL PALACE



The Imperial Palace is a historical landmark located in Tokyo and is the home of the Emperor. It is quite impressive with a unique blend of land, ornamental gardens and buildings. The Imperial Palace is on the same land as the Edo Castle, which was originally built in the 1800s.

THE GEISHA SHOW



The Geisha shows can be seen all over Japan. Some of the best shows are found in Tokyo and Kyoto. The Geisha girls train hard so that they can show off their many talents. The show consists of lots of dancing, art forms and musical instruments and guarantees a show you will not forget. Everyone who visits Japan must see a Geisha show.

UENO ZOO TOKYO



If you like animals and visiting zoos, you will enjoy the Ueno Zoo. This is the most famous and oldest zoo in Japan and has been open since 1882. As of today, the zoo is home to over 400 species of animals. The zoo has the greatest amount of different species in all of Japan. Visitors can take the monorail ride located inside the park which connects the western and eastern parts of the zoo.

Japan has so much to offer visitors that it might be hard to narrow down your list of things to do while there. Take the time to experience and see all you can while you are there so that you are sure to make the best of your visit.
