Where in Japan I recommend the most and why to travelers in Japan.
Tokyo (Akihabara). It’s the largest Japanimation hub in Japan, and it’s a geek’s Holy Land. In a sense, it’s where you can get the best feel for what being Japanese is about.
Favorite memory from traveling in Japan.
Ibaraki Prefecture (Oarai), Kami-iso-no-torii. It’s a torii gate that stands in the ocean, and it’s a famous spot to watch the sunrise. Look up a picture of it!
Must do activity for visitors to Japan.
Visiting different convenience stores! Convenience store goods are easily accessible, made to be easy to open, and often made for each store, so you really get a sense for the attention to detail that Japan is known for.
