"Japan has such a rich and..." Japan Favorite Tip by Gilam

Japan General: 704 reviews and 1,886 photos


Favorite thing: Japan has such a rich and ancient culture that its nearly impossible to sum it up in one experience, but some thing I wouldn't miss would be:
1. Bathing in an onsen (natural hotspring), preferably outside in the snow with hot sake
2. A visit to the city of Kamakura outside Tokyo
3. Eating at a Kai Ten Sushi (sushi-go-round)
4. Sumo
5. Going to a really good city arcade...Japanese arcades are the best...Try to find a SONY PLAZA

Fondest memory: I have so many...I miss the way the Shinto bells sounded on the hillside behind my apartment in the morning...I miss the social life, Japan is full of friendly people...the FOOD...the food is wonderful...
