Top visited travel sites in Japan

Japan is a country that offers the tourist exotic beauty and marvelous attractions. Anyone who makes the trip should have the vacation of a lifetime.   Unfortunately, Japan is one country where the language barrier does make travel very difficult for the English-speaking visitor.  Traveling in Japan takes more effort than traveling in Europe but we think you will find that the rewards are more than worth the effort.

Japan has so many outstanding places to visit  during a vacation that it is difficult to choose among them. We know that your vacation time is both brief and valuable. Our recommendations for the best places to visit will help you find the right place for your vacation in Japan.
The team at ThereArePlaces has developed a proprietary method for evaluating the attractiveness of towns and regions as tourist destinations. We used this methodology to create our list of the best places to visit in Japan. We believe that the cities and regions described below are the country’s key tourist destinations, contain Japan's best attractions and urge you to visit them during your travels in Japan.

Travel Information and Japan Facts to complete your basic preparation for vacationing in Japan.

  • Tokyo
  • (Click for our mini-guide on the Best Place to Visit in Tokyo)
    • Tokyo is where most tourist journeys of Japan start. It is hard to understate the shock value of Tokyo to the western visitor: finally, you will understand the real meaning of the word "foreign".
    • Tokyo's attractions result from a mix of important cultural, historic, and societal trends.  We can safely say that Tokyo is unlike any other big city in the world.  It is a fabulous place to visit, but you may need a vacation from the city (if not its prices) after a few days.
    • Be sure to examine our Tokyo Guide if you are considering travel to Tokyo.
    • Two cities that make great day trips from Tokyo are:
      • Nikko 
        • A solemn pilgrimage site for many Japanese, the shrine complex at Nikko is, also, a UNESCO World Heritage site. The area is closely associated with the history of the Tokugawa Shoguns. The surrounding National Park is stunning.
      • Kamakura 
        • One of Japan's best collections of shrines, temples, and monuments. In addition, the town is famous for its Great Buddha statue.
  • Kyoto 
    • Kyoto is Japan's second most popular tourist destination. Its fame results from  a several well preserved historical sites (over 15 have been classified UNESCO World Heritages sites).  Kyoto was Japan's capital and the emperor's residence through part of the First and most of the Second Millennia ( it is called "The Thousand Year Capital") and is the source of many aspects of the Japanese culture as we know it today. Kyoto, undamaged in World War II, contains the best-preserved examples of Japan's feudal history.  If you are a temple aficionado, plan to spend several days in Kyoto.  The town has many attractions and is a pleasant place to visit.
  • Osaka 
    • Osaka is another of Japan's vibrant "big" cities: it combines its history and modern economy in a  manner that is certain to please.
  • Hiroshima
    • Modern Hiroshima is known as a "peace" center.  Destroyed at the end of World War II by an atomic bomb, Hiroshima is known for its Peace Park and Peace Memorial Museum.  Be sure to visit nearby Miyajima Island for its shrine and famous torii gate.
  • Nara
    • Once the capital of Japan, Nara is a beautiful place with splendid temples representing both Shinto and Buddhism.  Nara is near both Kyoto and Osaka.
  • Nagasaki  
    • Nagasaki was one the principal ports during Japan's exposure to the western world in the 1600's, giving the town the most European flavor of any of Japan's cites.  Nagasaki was partly destroyed by an atomic bomb blast at the end of World War II.  Tourist Nagasaki is known for its Peace Park and the Sofuku-ji, an elegant temple whose architecture has a pronounced Chinese look.
  • Fuji Hakone Izu National Park 
    • Mt. Fuji is Japan's most famous and most sacred mountain.  It is held in reverence by the Japanese and climbing its trail is a rite of passage.
      • Mt Fuji is part of the Fuji Hakone Izu National Park. 
      • Measuring in at slightly over 12,000 feet, Mt. Fuji, a nearly symmetrical strato-volcano, last erupted in the 18th century
    • The Izu peninsula and the Hakone district are known for great scenery, but mostly for their hot springs and spas.
    • Hakone, a forested, mountainous, volcanic area is the site of some of Japan's most popular resorts and spas.  The area is less than 100 miles from Tokyo and is a great place for a break from the city.
  • Daisetsuzan NP 
    • Most visitors to Hokkaido (the northernmost of Japan's islands)  travel there to enjoy the island's reputation as  Japan's most scenic landscape.  The Daisetsuzan National Park is the best place to see "wild" Japan.  The park offers the outdoor enthusiast great hiking and spectacular views.
