"In Japan, Asakusa (in Tokyo)..." Asia Favorite Tip by dcPeter

Asia General: 161 reviews and 117 photos

Favorite thing: In Japan, Asakusa (in Tokyo) for the traditional and festive.
In Hong Kong, Victoria Peak Cafe at night! Very romantic. If you prefer air-con, then any of the roof-top bar/restaurants (I like the Shangri-la).

Fondest memory: In Japan, a visit to Kyushu's Mt. Aso ('Aso-san') in October will make an unforgettable impression. On the drive through the caldera (old volcano valley), you will see a beautiful landscape of golden grasses and green crops. If you pass through Kagoshima airport, you'll have a chance to see Sakurajima ('Cherry Mountain') puff white spumes of ash into the sky over the bay.
