Although the bigger cities such as, Tokyo, Yokohama, Osaka, Nagoya, and Sapporo are full of technology and people hustling around, there are many peaceful places of Japans countryside. 71 percent of Japan is mountainous and there are places that you can hike on them. If you are daring enough you could climb Mt. Fuji, Japans highest point at 12,385 feet tall. If you are planning on staying in Japan for a while you could visit all eight islands. The summer in the northern islands is warm compared to the hot humid summers of the southern islands.
I would recommend going to the southern islands in the winter because they are very mild with little snowfall. In the north they have long cold winters with heavy snowfall. Japan has beautiful gardens that the Japanese people work very hard on making and value highly as a sense of art and enlightenment. If you aren’t planning on going to Japan to enjoy the land, and you want to come for a luxurious or scholarly trip Japan can still do that. Many college students come to Japan to do their schooling.
That isn’t very surprising considering Japan’s literacy rate is at an amazing 99 percent! Japanese is the main, and basically the only, language spoken in Japan. Japanese government is a parliamentary government with a constitutional monarchy. That means that the power of the Emperor is limited. Japan gained independence in 1947. One dollar in the United States converts to 124 Japanese yen. That’s quite a bit because a night at a hotel costs about 2,900-7,600 yen. When travelers go to Japan I’m sure they have no problem getting service for their cell phones.
For the 126,804,433 people that live in Japan there are 107,339,000 cell phones. It will be easy to book a flight to Japan when they have 174 airports for the eight small islands that make up the country! If you aren’t convinced to come to Japan yet, you will be when you learn about the great culture and history they have. If you are planning on going on vacation to an Asian country, I highly recommend going to Japan. There is so much to do there on each of the islands!
