Published on 7 March, 2013 at 10:00 am By

Travelling is not all about seeing different places in the world; it is how we see the world which has been somehow remote to us until the time we saw it and understand its working mechanism better to describe our inner self by comparison. Visiting different places and meeting diverse people develops a sense of individuality in us. By meeting people who are different from us, we learn new things which then diminish the sample space thereby helping us find our true personalities. Luckily the world has plentiful of beautiful places to visit, of which Japan is a fairly good choice. The following are the top 10 must visit destinations in Japan which will give you an unforgettable experience.

10. Nikko:

After a long day trip from Tokyo, you reach Nikko. Set amidst the mountains comprising of famous sanctuaries and temples, Nikko is worth a visit. The breathtaking mountains rise abruptly around the town full of monkeys and Japanese Macaque, which are often seen foraging along the road. There is also the Lake Chuzenji and Kegon Falls, one of the tree highest waterfalls in Japan.

Stretching to almost 2000 kms to the southeast of Tokyo, the Ogasawara islands become less inhabited the more you go south. A number of beautiful, remote, volcanic islands and a collection of endemic species are protected under the Ogasawara National Park. Inhabited mostly by small fishing and farming communities, most of the subtropical and tropical islands are isolated and best reached by ferry.

8. Kinkaku-ji, Kyoto:

The land of pine trees, Kinkaku-ji is best known as the Golden Pavilion which is among the most visited sites in Japan. There’s much more, too, as the city houses 17 designated UNESCO World Heritage sites, most dated between the 10th and the 19th centuries. The city of Kyoto was largely sparred as a bombing target in World War 2.
