Most Beautiful Places in Japan

top photo most beautiful places in japan

There are many beautiful places to visit in Japan all year round. The difficulty is choosing which place you want to go to the most. Some have a seasonal specialty like the cherry blossoms at Ueno Park or the Wisteria Tunnel at Kawachi Fuji Garden. These places are best to visit when they are in season, but there are other sights to see that are great no matter the time of the year. The Arashiyama Bamboo Grove in Kyoto is a great photo spot and the stroll through the walking paths as a gentle wind sways the stalks is an experience that is indescribable. Even Kinkakuji (Golden Pavilion), which is also in Kyoto, is gorgeous to look at with its upper levels covered in gold leaf while the structure is being reflected in the pond. View more...
