Things to Do in Japan

Japan is more than just a city with high rises. Even within the cities, you will be surprised by the pockets of traditions that still live on. If you are wondering what you can do, here are a few things to get you started with:

  • Eat authentic cuisine: if you are adventurous enough and have a liking towards fish, try some sushi. Though it does require an acquired taste bud, it is a must try. If not, try some Ramen or Kaiseki to get the true flavour of Japan.
  • Be a part of the tea ceremony: The Japanese have special cafes where they perform the authentic tea ceremony. The ceremony goes back to almost 1000 years and holds a lot of significance in the culture and traditions of Japan
  • Visit a Temple: It doesn’t matter if you are religious or not or even follow the same practices like the Japanese. A visit to the famous temples of Japan should be on your itinerary. You can marvel at the architecture of these temples and soak in the peace and tranquillity they emit. 
  • Have a traditional stay: They say to have an authentic Japanese experience, you should stay in a traditional place. We agree. You will be greeted with wooden interiors, home cooked meals that need to be enjoyed while sitting on the floor and an outdoor hot bath that will wash away your travel blues.
  • Take a hike: Plan a day hike on the Northern Alps that is spread across Nagano, Toyama, and Gifu
  • A tour of the past: Japan has had its fair share of trials and tribulations. You can still see the remnants of the war at the Hiroshima Peace Memorial Park and Museum.

There is so much more you can do and experience on your Japan holiday tour. Once you book your tickets, we, at SOTC, can guide you and plan your itinerary for the trip.
