5 reasons to visit Japan 日本に観光する理由
Best of Japan
Japan attracts tourists for its magnificent landscapes, culture, and people's friendliness, and its pop culture is known worldwide. Here are five top reasons to visit Japan!
1. Impressive panoramas
In the West, you hardly see any tall buildings in the residential districts due to its zoning laws. However, in Japan, it's quite the opposite. After the Second World War, a construction frenzy took over the country, building many skyscrapers.
2. The diversity of natural landscapes
Japan is full of stunning natural landscapes. Beyond the traditional cherry blossoms in spring and momiji (maples) in autumn, you can stroll along the Amanohashidate sand bridge, wander around Mount Fuji to discover the region's magnificent lakes, or go north to admire the northern beauties of Hokkaido.

While some of the country's best-known dishes can be found in restaurants worldwide, many recipes have remained on the islands. You have to give it a try!
4. The heritage of Japan
Japan's cultural heritage is one of the great pleasures of photographers, who each year offer us magnificent photos of the archipelago temples, palaces, or gardens.
5. Meet the animals
One thing that strikes travelers in Japan is the omnipresence of animals. While it is more difficult for the Japanese to have a pet than for the French, animals are easily accessible in the country and in an enjoyable way.
Thus cat bars, owl bars, or even recently, otter bars exist in the country. Many localities are known for their free-range animals, such as Nara deer and Nagano monkeys. And let's not forget the Cat Islands, where humans are rarer than cats!
