Japan is one of the most celebrated travel destinations in the world. It is a unique blend of traditional and modern style, with many temples and buildings from the past co-existing with modern achievements in architecture and technology. More people travel to Japan last year than ever before: 24.04 million. Over the last three years, the number of visitors here has more than doubled. Are you wondering what are some tourist attractions in Japan? Well, I listed the top five tourist attractions in Japan.

1. Disneyland

Disneyland is one of the famous travel destinations in Japan. Tokyo is home to one of America’s biggest entertainment exports, with a Disneyland theme park located just east of the capital in Urayasu, Chiba. It opened in 1983 and was the first Disney theme park outside of the US.

2. Golden Pavilion

Golden Pavilion is the second on the list of Japan tourist attractions. Kinkaku-ji, or the Temple of the Golden Pavilion, is one of the most well-known tourist attractions in Japan and Kyoto. Emphasis locates on the building and surrounding gardens being in harmony with one another. The pavilion is covered with a gold leaf, which highlights the reflection of the pavilion in the pond and the pond’s reflection on the building.

3. Mount Fuji

Mount Fuji is the highest mountain in Japan (3,776 meters). The volcano’s exceptionally symmetrical cone is a well-known symbol of Japan, and it is frequently depicted in art and photographs, as well as a popular tourist attraction for sightseers and climbers. According to an estimation, 200,000 people climb Mount Fuji every year, 30% of whom are foreigners. Actually, the ascent takes anywhere between three and eight hours, while the descent takes from two to five hours.

4. Todaiji Temple

Founded originally in the 8th century, Todaiji Temple is one of the oldest buildings existing in Japan and one of the best Japan tourist attractions. The temple is best known for the world’s largest Buddha statue.

5. Hiroshima

Hiroshima is one of the last famous travel destinations in Japan. Hiroshima, located on Honshu Island, is younger than many Japanese cities, less than 500 years old, but its fate was forever sealed in history on August 6, 1945, when it became the first city in the world to have an atomic bomb dropped on it. Thus, the city’s attractions centre on peace: Peace Park, Peace Memorial, and Peace Memorial Museum. The city also has attractions that invoke more pleasant thoughts, such as Hiroshima Castle and the sunken garden of Shukkein-en.
