Things to do in Japan
Must do activities in Japan span from water sports at beaches, shopping in the cities, tourism at temples, sightseeing at parks and learning at museums.The iconic images that immediately come to mind when thinking of a visit to Japan are the temples surrounded by cherry trees and the crowded cities. A visit to these shrines is like a trip to Japan's museums of the Buddhist religion.
For a truly local shopping experience, visiting a morning market is a must do activity in Japan. Many of these markets open at 5 am and close by 12 noon. Only local merchants have shops at the markets where you can find fresh vegetables, local textiles and hand-made folk art.
For a small country, a visit to Japan offers many museums. Most of the museums are art and with their love for all things modern, you are sure to find art that you have never experienced at one of their many modern art museums. There are also some architectural and technical museums.
The Southern Boso area of Japan offers some views of natural areas. The Minami Boso Quasi-National Park in this region displays beautiful floral gardens. A soothing hot spring allows for a relaxing respite from the many busy cities of the country.
