Touring gorgeous Japanese temples, walking through serene gardens, climbing far-stretching mountains and eating delicious sushi. These experiences and more are what pull tourists to Japan every year, and they’re experiences you want to have. The Todaiji Temple and Kinkaku-ji, also called the Temple of the Golden Pavilion, are the temples to see. Todaiji’s main hall is the largest wooden building in the world and houses one of the largest bronze Buddha statues in Japan. Don’t be surprised to see deer freely roaming the grounds. They’re allowed to since deer are seen as messengers of the Shinto gods. The Golden Pavilion is a popular tourist attraction in Kyoto because of the peaceful harmony surrounding the golden building and its beautiful gardens. If you’re up for a day of climbing, take on Mount Fuji — the highest mountain in Japan. Hundreds of thousands of people climb this mountain every year. When you want to take in the amazing landscapes, visit Mifuneyama Rakuen, Hoshitouge Rice Terrace or Nanatsugama Godan Falls. Be sure to bring your camera! With its blend of the traditional and modern worlds, cultural sights and breathtaking views, traveling to Japan is an experience you’ll never forget.
