Tokyo, Japan

Many travelers who’ve traveled to Tokyo before would say that this is the best time to visit since prices are lower than they have been in recent years. Especially during the winter the prices are particularly lower than the summer months. One interesting place to check out in Japan is the Toto Toilet Museum. That is correct a museum that showcases the evolution of toilets. If that wasn’t interesting enough try visiting the world’s first hotel staffed by humanoid robots at Henn-na Hotel. All in all Tokyo is a buzzling place that has something for everyone and provides an experience to last a a lifetime.

kyoto, Japan

kyoto, Japan

Not only do the residents appreciate the many shrines and ancient past.  They also have a strong sense of propriety of family. This makes harder for locals to consider themselves true kyotoites unless they can trace their lineage back 4 generations. What makes this place so immaculate are the values that the locals have such insisting anything made outside their city is of lesser quality therefore making their own the best humanly possible. So if a traveler wanted to splurge on a fancy dinner or gifts for a friend everything would be top notch. 6th century The Shimogamo Shrine was created and looks as if it were frozen time, with its serenity and spiritual power. Do not pass up  visiting Fushimi Inari Shrine, to see the Thousand Armed Kannon statues of Sanjūsangen-dō that are life sized.

A trip to Hiroshima is best kicked off with a visit to the Hiroshima Peace Memorial Park, which contains a museum, the remnants of buildings destroyed by the 1945 atomic bomb and monuments to the people killed by this nuclear attack. Understanding Hiroshima’s relatively recent devastation is key to fully appreciating its beauty and culture. Visit splendidly rebuilt historic sites like Hiroshima Castle and Shukkei-en Garden, and don’t miss the Itsukushima Shrine on the nearby island of Miyajima.
