Japan is known for its cultural richness and heritage. The natural landscape, the beautiful cherry blossoms and the distinct cuisine are hardly missed. Kyoto, Tokyo, Osaka and Hakone are among the most popular destinations in Japan. While Japan’s rich culture and heritage is at its heart, it also offers many exclusive attractions and activities that can make a trip unforgettable. The island nation surely has some unique places you can visit while planning a trip to Japan.

  • Nishinomaru Garden: This beautiful garden is loaded with beautiful cherry blossoms during the blooming season. Located next to Osaka Castle, this garden soothes you with different varieties of flowers and a scenic view to enjoy.
  • Atomic Bomb Dome: Japan faced the devastating bombing of Hiroshima in 1945. The dome was just below the bomb, but interestingly it survived the blast.
