    The Asian culture is appealing for many Europeans and Americans. One of the most visited Asian countries is Japan. Millions of tourists come here each year eager to visit their attractions and to learn more about the Japanese life style and culture. The Japanese gardens are also famous all over the world for their beauty.

    Japan is one of the fewest countries in the world where it’s so obvious the merger between the old traditions and the new technologies.


    Tokyo, Yokohama, Kyoto, Osaka, Hiroshima, Nagoya and Fukuoka are the top tourist destinations in Japan.By far Tokyo is the most visited attraction in Japan. The Imperial Palace, the Sensoji Temple the Keji shrine, amusement parks, museums of science and technology and the incredible sky scrapers are the most famous tourist attractions of Japan’s capital city.

    Yokohama is a maritime city that attracts tourist with shopping opportunities, culinary delights and with the Silk Museum where you can learn all about this exceptional fabric.

    Osaka is famous for the cherry bloom or ‘hanami’ that can be admired between the months of April and May. Other interesting attractions include Osaka Castle, the National Cultural Park, the Osaka Nanko Bridge and the Umeda Sky Building.

    Hiroshima, unfortunately, became famous after the tragic event that took place on 6th August 1945. In that fatal day, US dropped an atomic bomb over the city killing more than 200,000 inhabitants. The city of Hiroshima recovered after that massive destruction and managed to develop into one of the most important Japanese cities.

    Nagoya is the perfect destination for tourists that want to know more about the Japanese religion and history. The city welcomes the tourists with many historical sites and museums.

    Fukuoka is considered one of the oldest cities in Japan and is full of history, culture and religious sites. The most important touristic attractions include: the Fukuoka Castle Ruins, the Uminonakamichi Marine Park, the Fukuoka Dome, the Canal City and many shrines, temples and museums that preserve the old religion and Japanese culture.
