3.0 of 5 stars based on 5 votes

The things I enjoyed most, during my three-week trip to Japan.

  • 1. Naoshima-cho
    Naoshima-cho, Kagawa-gun

    This is a must if you like contemporary art and architecture.

  • 2. Hatsukaichi
    Hatsukaichi, Hiroshima Prefecture

    This is supposedly one of the three most beautiful places in Japan. It's beautiful!

  • 3. Umeda Sky Building - Floating Garden Observatory
    Floating Garden, Osaka, Osaka Prefecture

    The ride up in the glas escalators is a thrill, and the view breathtaking. If you get there just before sunset, you get to see both the day- and nightview, and of course the sunset.

  • 4. Onsenji Yumedono Ryokan

    Japanese style Inn - with private outdoor Onsen bath - in Kawaguchiko, near Mount Fuji. Enjoy spectacular views of Fuji-san!

  • 5. Kyoto
    Kyoto, Kyoto Prefecture

    My favorite temples were:
    Silver Pavilion (Ginkaku-ji); Golden Pavilion (Kinkaku-ji); The Daitoku-ji complex of Zen Buddhism consists of 24 temples, don't miss Daisen-in and Ryogen-in with amazing zen gardens; Fushimi Inari Shrine, go there at night when you can have it all to yourself; Sanjusangendo Hall (Rengeo-in), with 1001 life-sized, wooden statues of Kannon.

  • 6. Mori Tower
    Tokyo City View, Minato, Tokyo

    The combination of the art museum and the city view is a winner.

  • 7. Koya-cho
    Koya-cho, Ito-gun

    Walk through the forest up to Okunoin and look at all the amazing gravestones. And don't miss the zengarden in Kongôbuji Temple.

  • 8. Japanese style bath

    Don't miss it, but make sure you know how to behave before you dive in... wich you shouldn't!

  • 9. Daikanyama

    A part of Tokyo, between Shibuya and Ebisu. Nice for shopping and strolling.

  • 10. Okonomiaki

    A mix between pancake and pizza they call it. Eggs, cabbage and bacon. Soysauce on top. Delicious!
