I have lived in Japan for about a year and I have enjoyed every minute of it. I love the food, the sites and the weather. The people are nice, honest and very disciplined. If you have plans of visiting The Land of The Rising Sun, here are the top places I would recommend you see.
It’s the capital of Japan and this is where I lived for almost a year. Tokyo is one of the biggest cities in the world with more than 10 million people and one of the most expensive, too. What I love about Tokyo is you can find everything here. It’s like New York City in Asia where there is a little of everything. Try going to Ginza on a Sunday and it’s like you’re in Paris. The main road is closed and there are tables outside the shops where you can eat, have coffee or simply enjoy sitting and watching people. Roppongi, Shibuya, Shinjuku, Harajuku are the most popular places to visit in Tokyo.
It’s a shame that I have lived in Japan for almost a year but I have never visited this enchanting place. I have heard so much about the place and I really regret not going there. But if you’re really interested in knowing about Japan’s real culture it’s origin, visit Kyoto. They say you can still feel the old Japanese atmosphere when you are in the city and it’s here where you can find plenty of shrines, temples, and other historical monuments.
If great food is what you are after, go to Osaka. The second biggest city in Japan is well-known as a business city and Japanese cuisine. You will feel more relaxed here because of its downtown atmosphere. Tokyo is more sophisticated and fast-paced, Osaka has slower life and a more relaxed atmosphere.
A city that doesn’t look like Japan at all. The culture, custom, ideology and even the people are different because it used to be an independent kingdom. Plus, it was ruled by the US until 1972 so you can see a unique mix of cultures. Weather here is like in the tropics so you can enjoy the beautiful beaches and the natural parks any time of the year.
Never been to Fukuoka but among all the beautiful cities in Japan, they say this is the most relaxed cities to live in. It has a lot of shopping malls and if you love Ramen, Fukuoka has the best Ramen noodle in the country.
