    What You'll Experience During Your Japan Vacation

    A journey through Japan offers a range of traditional experiences. And these can begin with your overnight stay. In a ryokan, a typical Japanese hostel, you sleep behind sliding doors covered with handmade paper on futons that are laid directly on the floors made of mats of rice straw. You should also not miss a bath in an onsen, a hot spring. The sakura, the Japanese cherry blossom, is also an absolute highlight and an important symbol of the local culture. During this time, numerous festivals, called Hanami, are held to celebrate the beauty of the blossom.

    Less traditional, but still a real experience, is the ride on the Shinkansen Bullet Train. This express train takes you to your destination at up to 275 miles per hour, is unrivalled in its punctuality, and yet is one of the safest means of transportation in the world.  Less

    Places to Include in Your Japan Tour

    Mount Fuji

    Images of the snow-covered peak of Mount Fuji, the highest mountain in Japan, are known worldwide. It is not for nothing that the majestic volcano has been a UNESCO World Heritage Site since 2013. Every year, around 300,000 people climb the summit of Mount Fuji-San, as the mountain is respectfully called by the Japanese.

    Kinkaku-ji

    Kyoto is home to many impressive temples and shrines. The Kinkaku-ji is particularly breathtaking, however, because its main hall is covered all over with gold leaf. This is the reason why it is called the "Golden Pavilion". When the sun is shining and the sparkling building is reflected in the surrounding pond, you will be amazed.

    Kiyomizu-dera

    Another temple worth seeing in Kyoto is the Kiyomizu-dera, the temple of pure water. From here you can enjoy a wonderful view over the whole city. The way to the temple is lined with numerous souvenir stores where you can stroll past and purchase special souvenirs.

    Fushimi Inari Taisha

    Next to Mount Fuji, it is probably the most famous Fushimi Inari Taisha shrine in Japan. The shrine, which is one of the oldest in Kyoto, is located in the south of the city. More than 1,000 scarlet arches, the so-called torii, form almost endless tunnels that are just waiting for you to walk through. Not to mention the great souvenir photos you can take here.

    Arashiyama

    A very special experience is the walk through the bamboo forest of Arashiyama, very close to Kyoto. Listen here to the rustling and creaking of the bamboo sticks, which are up to ten meters high, in the wind. Especially at dusk, the light here is almost magical. You can also explore the forest by bicycle or rickshaw.  Less
