9 Things You Must Not Miss in Japan

The land of the rising sun has some incredible sights and experiences to explore and witness.

Here are our top 9 things that you must not miss in Japan.

Famous Floating Torii Gate

The Itsukushima Shrine on the island of Itsukushima is well known throughout the world for its ‘floating’ gate. The gate is located in an area that appears to be floating at high tide. At low tide, you can actually walk up close to it, but if you want the perfect photo, we recommend the floating look.

Experience a proper bullet train

Take a ride on a super high-speed train on the Shinkansen. Hurtle through the Japanese countryside at an eyewatering 320km/h!

Eat the freshest Sashimi in the country

Visit the Tokyo fish and produce market in the morning to get your hands and mouths on the freshest sushi you will be able to get in Japan. Possibly the perfect breakfast? We think so.

Take a Hike up Mount Fuji

One for the adventurers! Take a hike up to Japans tallest peak, the dormant volcano of Mount Fuji. The views you will experience are second to none.

Watch the Sumo

Sumo wrestling originates in Japan, so this is certainly the best place to enjoy it! Japan is also the only country where it is professionally practised, so be sure to visit a major sumo tournament on your visit.

Bathe in an Onsen

Experience a warm, outdoor bath, known in Japan as an Onsen, whilst the snow is falling. Due to Japan being a volcanically active country, there are thousands of these scattered throughout the country and all of its major islands.

Visit a Sake brewery

Are you a fan of Japan’s rice-based alcoholic beverage? If so, take a trip to the sake breweries in Obuse or Takayama! Here you will learn how it is made and all the different types you can get!

See the Tokyo Metropolitan Government Building
