  • SPOT
  • Japan is indeed abundant with picturesque environment making it one of the best places in Asia to visit. From its natural landscapes, its culture, festivities, and even man-made creations, Japan has been known to have it all. With the hundreds and even thousands places worth visiting around the country, it is understandable if you would not know which places to visit first. For starters, these four memorials and beautiful places in Japan are worth checking out.

    1. Miyajima

    Miyajima is a small island found in the outskirts of Nagashima. What makes it popular is the “Itsukushima Shrine”, it is a famous torii gate which appears “floating” during high tide making it one of the most photographed views in Japan. Aside from the shrine, this romantic place has deers roaming around the island that have gotten used to people. These deer embrace tourists’ attention, that is why they are wandering in the places tourists frequent.

    2. Hiroshima Peace Memorial Museum

    Hiroshima will always be connected to the tragedy of war and atomic bombing, and that is the reason why it is one of the most visited cities in Japan. Particularly the Hiroshima Peace Memorial Museum, where they display belongings left by the victims of the bombing, it has about a million visitors per year. Though the displays are sad, it is an interesting and moving place to visit. Be aware that there might be images that are not suitable for very young visitors, but taking your children there would be a very educational and thought-provoking experience.

    3. Tokyo Disney Sea

    Tokyo Disney Sea is a much preferred Disney Park to adults. The rides are more challenging compared to Tokyo’s Disneyland. It has a Mediterranean theme with gondolas and waterfront areas. But what would amaze you most is the Little Mermaid Lagoon for it is like an amusement park inside an amusement park.

    4. Fushimi Inari Shrine

    Located in Kyoto, the most historical city in Japan, the Fushimi Inari Shrine’s torii gates trail that stretches to smaller shrines in the mountain is one of the places you do not want to miss out on visiting. The two-hour hike may seem overwhelming but the scenery and experience are totally worth it. If you are with elderly people, do not worry because there is another 30-minute trail available (where the Memoirs of Geisha was filmed).
