Top Four Things To Do in Japan

There are countless things to do in Japan - tasty things to eat, fun places to go, and amazing things to see. Here are my top four.

#1 Mount Fuji: Mount Fuji is one of the biggest mountains in the world and one of the most popular tourist traps of Japan. The mountain is 12,388 feet (3,776 meters) and takes about 11.5 hours to climb. If you aren't an avid adventurer and just want to view Mount Fuji's beauty, the Fuji Five Lakes is a great spot. Hakone, a hot springs resort near the volcano, is also a popular spot for tourists.

#2 Bike Tours: Japan has bike tours all over the country. Bike tours can take you across parks, cities, and around cherry blossoms during spring, and the autumn leaves in fall. They even have bike tours around popular food areas and markets.

#3 Food: It is no secret that Japan is famous for its sushi and delicious fish, but there are more foods in Japan such as ramen, a food chain that is one of my personal favorites called Coco’s Curry, and much more.

#4 Shrines/Temples: Shrines in Japan are made to serve the Shinto religious tradition and are characterized by a torii gate at the entrance. The shrines guard temples that are built to serve the Buddhist religious tradition. The temples are tourist hotspots in Japan, and there are about a hundred thousand shrines all over Japan.

This is only a few ideas of things to do while in Japan. There are still much more fun and interesting things to do!
