Japan’s Essential Jaunts

Japan is unlike any other country on the planet.  It’s seen by many as the most futuristic yet one of the most beautiful nations out in the East.  Therefore, it’s hardly surprising that the list of things to see and do here is almost endless!

But what if you’ve never set foot in the country before?  What should you be looking for as a newbie to Japan – and what can you expect?  Here’s just a simple taster of what might be in store for you when you head across.

Endless Gaming Fun

Japan is a big fan of games.  Not only are they a leading provider of some of the world’s best-known and best-loved gaming brands, most people here love to cut loose and have some fun.  Pachinko, for example, is almost a national sport!  You’ll find scores of parlours specialising in the game from city to city.

However, it’s worth noting that Japan is sadly devoid of casinos and slots lounges.  That seems set to change from 2021, however.  Therefore, when the first casinos pop up in the country next year, it makes sense for you to brush up on the most basic blackjack strategies!  Who knows what Japan’s maiden casinos will look like?

Blissful Temples

While some people think of Japan and think of their colourful cities, it’s a country blessed with many peaceful spots.  Thanks to its religious roots, you will find many temples and holy places scattered about the land.

One of the most spectacular temples, for example, is Kinkakuji.  Sometimes called the Golden Pavilion, it is a stunning pillar of worship.  Extravagant and photo-worthy, this sacred place is awash with Buddhist statues and monuments.

If you have time, do make sure to visit Japan’s temples as a priority.  It’s a nice break away from the hustle and bustle!

Green Walks and Wonders

Rural Japan, too, is always worth visiting.  When taking a break from the bright lights of the big cities, take a look down the stunning Arashiyama Bamboo Grove.  It’s one of many fabulous examples of true natural wonders in and around Kyoto.

The area is full of traditional temples and parkland for you to explore, too.  Japan’s peaceful, reflective side is just as mesmerising as its modern commodities.  You will not want to miss out!

Dive Into Karaoke

Japan is, of course, the home of karaoke.  An activity where you sing popular songs as you follow words along a screen, karaoke has become a popular staple in bars and clubs all over the world.  However, the karaoke clubs in Japan are something special.

Many clubs offer incredible experiences, with songs in Japanese and English alike.  Singing in public seems to be a way of life for many people here.  Don’t be afraid to show the world your vocal talents!

Never-Ending Experiences

Japan is a nation with endless experiences and cultural journeys for you to head down.  Why not take in the rural sights and sounds as well as the glitz and glitter of the futuristic cities?
