Traveling to Japan is one of the most exciting experiences you’ll ever have in your life. The country has so much to offer. There are so many things to see. Still, going there by yourself is a true challenge as Japanese people rarely speak a foreign language. More important, however, is the size of the country and the need for an excellent organization if you want to see everything there is.
To be clear, you can’t see everything. There is so much culture and historic venues that you’ll need a lifetime to see everything. That’s why it’s wise to hire an agency that will completely book your trip to Japan.
When you’re about to hire professionals, you understand that you have so many options. You must choose the tour package and what you would like to see the most. Of course, a combination of everything is best, but beware that you’ll need more time for this pleasure. If you like to dedicate a trip to one main thing, then you should know what there is to see.
The Sakura period
In the springtime, millions of tourists come to Japan to see the blossoming of the cherry tree. Parks, avenues, river banks are all covered in the amazing pink and white leaves of the cherry tree. The cities become fairy tales.
This period is known as Sakura. It is a time when Japanese people celebrate the beginning of the new season, the spring. Sakura has always been highly important for the locals. There are dozens of festivals everywhere that the cherry tree is present.
This means that if you’re about to go to Japan and you have no favorite time when to do it – pick April. Combining the Sakura period and sightseeing of other important places will be a reason to feel like you had the time of your life.
Tradition is very important for the Japanese. They might be one of the most developed countries in the world but history and culture is something they hold on to very strong.
More than half of the Japanese declare as non-religious or Shinto. This is simply a way of life and is not connected to shrines, Gods, and similar. Almost 35% of the population are traditional Buddhists. Buddhism is present here a long time ago and some of the most stunning Buddhist temples are right there in Japan.
Aside from the temples, if you love Japanese culture, then you must visit Kyoto. This city still lives in the spirit of past times. You can see women dressed like they used to do it centuries ago and people drinking tea in houses that are not changed in style and looks also with centuries.
As we mentioned, one of the most developed countries in the world is Japan. The capital of the state – Tokyo is a city that will make you feel like you enter a time traveling machine. Don’t get surprised if you see robots controlling the traffic and receiving help from machines that are not controlled by humans whatsoever.
Train tourism is something new in the world of tourism. People actually go to Japan to ride on the fastest train on this planet – The Maglev. With a top speed of over 600 km/h, it is the second fastest traveling method after planes.
If you’re a tourist and you’re about to travel to the “Land of the Sunrise”, you surely won’t go there just to see some fast trains. It’s normal. Along with the city’s megastructures and skyscrapers you can see temples, museums, and ninja schools. Like Himeji and the castle where you can see actual ninja equipment and learn more about this amazing art of fighting.
Japan is worth your time, that’s for sure. However, it will be a mistake if you think you can visit all the important places on your own. Hire a professional and book a tour. Ask for all-inclusive treatment so you can also taste the world-famous Japanese food. Enjoy your travels and have the time of your life.
