Japanese Hot Springs

 
Japanese Hot Springs The Japanese do a wonderful job of taking a glass-half-full approach to all the geological activity that their archipelago, with its location on the morbidly named Pacific Ring of Fire, is subject to. Rather than dwell on a history of debilitating earthquakes, or the possibility of cataclysmic volcanic eruptions, they just take off all their clothes and let their cares evaporate in the steam of a Japanese hot spring. Known as onsen, these hot springs in Japan can be found in almost every corner of the country, and constitute some of the best sightseeing in Japan. All puns aside, onsen are a great way to relax after climbing Mount Fuji, or at the end of a hectic week of business meetings. A result of the massive qu...
 

Kansai District

 
Kansai District The Kansai district is arguably Japan's most historic region and home to both the Himeji Castlea UNESCO World Heritage Siteand Ise Shima National park, the most prominent ocean park of Japan and a major source of cultured pearls.

Kurashiki

 
Kurashiki A city of half a million located in the Okayama Prefecture of Chugoku region, Kurashiki is the perfect stop for travelers looking to explore the architecture and lifestyle of 17th century Japan. Kurashiki is just a few kilometers east of Okayama City, and though at first glance seems to offer little for the tourist, a trip through the citys Bikan Historical Quarter plunges you back into a picturesque 17th century Japanese city.

More importantly, however, Kurashiki served as a storage center for rice harvested throughout the Okayama Prefectu...
 

Mount Koya

 
Mount Koya Located in the mist shrouded mountains of the Wakayama Prefecture, Mount Koya (Koyasan) is one of the countrys holiest mountains and the center of Shingon Buddhism in Japan.

One of the most authentic Japan attractions, tourists can chose fr...
 

Mt. Fuji

 
Mt. Fuji Perhaps the most recognizable symbol of Japan is the near-perfect, snow-capped cone of Mt Fuji dominating the Tokyo skyline. Known affectionately as Fuji-san, Mt Fuji is not only a natural wonder, it is a sacred site said to be imbued with a living spirit, and has long been a source of inspiration for poets and artists alike. Rising up from the Pacific Ocean to a majestic height of 12,388 ft, Mt. Fuji stands on the border between Yamanashi and Shizuoka prefectures. One of the most visible Japan attractions and easily one of the most picturesque mountains in Japan, Mt Fuji can be seen from both Tokyo and Yokohama on a clear day. Today a dormant volcano, Fuji-san last erupted in 1707 and covered Edo (present day Tok...
 

Kaga

Kaga was the first city in Japan to twin with a Canadian city (Dundas which now is part of Hamilton) in 1968. Student exchanges have been occuring between Kaga and Dundas since then. When visiting Kaga, normally there are no other foreigners in the city except for the Canadians, thus you really experience Japanese life as the group lives with host families for the three or four week duration. With Kaga being on The Sea of Japan, there is a lovely sandy beach in the Shioya section of Kaga. Beside this there is other nature's beauty too....

Roppongi Hills At the Roppongi Hills complex in Central Tokyo the question isnt what is there to do but, what isnt there to do Art museums, gardens, schools, movie theatres, apartments, world famous restaurants, designer shopping, and some of the best Tokyo sightseeing are all found here.

Opened in 2003 after 17 years of planning and construction, The Roppongi Hills complex is arguably Tokyos most upscale neighborhood. Though perhaps neighborhood isnt really the right wordRoppongi Hills is more of a city within a city. Eight themed areas blend into one another, with the focal point being the 54 story Mori Tower (which houses the art mu...
