Meccas of digital technology and iconic pop culture contrast with serene temples, beautiful cherry blossoms, and mountainous natural landscapes in this island nation. Begin your Japan tour in the capital, Tokyo, where you’ll find futuristic skyscrapers and amusement parks, as well as historic temples and imperial castles. Stop at Sensoji Buddhist temple, one of the city’s oldest sacred sites, then visit the Imperial Palace Plaza, build on the former site of Edo Castle, or stop by the Tsukiji Fish Market to watch the famous tuna auction. On clear days you can see Mt. Fuji from the observation decks of the Tokyo Skytree or the Tokyo Tower. Continue to the tranquil city of Kyoto, once the imperial capital, and famous for its traditional wooden houses and beautiful temple complexes. Visit the ancient Shimogamo Shrine, see the ornate wood-carvings of the shogun-era Nijō Castle, and walk along the lakes of the Temple of the Golden Pavilion, Kinkaku-ji. The bustling port city of Osaka is home to Abeno Harukas Observatory, the tallest skyscraper in Japan, and neon-lit Dōtonbori, a lively entertainment district. In Hiroshima, visit the Peace Memorial Park and Museum as well as the only structure left standing in the area after the atomic bomb explosion in 1945, now an expression of hope for world peace.
