Most Popular Places to Visit in Japan

Naoshima

Officially part of Kagawa Prefecture, Naoshima is a small island in the Seto Inland Sea. Though it is a nice rustic getaway from Tokyo, the island is most famous for its numerous modern art museums, architecture, and sculptures.

Ueno Park

If your travels allow for only a brief stay in Japan, there would likely be no better place to check out than Ueno Park. This area offers a smorgasbord of attractions that allow visitors to sample many of the country’s unique charms within a single venue.

Kawagoe

Located only 45 minutes northwest of Tokyo, Kawagoe might as well be a modern-day time machine! This little known spot has earned itself the nickname “Little Edo” (Edo being the old name for Tokyo) due to its numerous historical warehouses. Today the area is an enjoyable historic day trip from Tokyo for both travellers and locals alike.
