    Longing for an overseas trip but got no money and time? For those reasons, why not visit Little World at Aichi Prefecture to experience a trip around the world instead?
  • Osaka-jo

    The castle of Osaka is the major attraction of the town, and it surely is worth a visit. From the inside and the outside it represents the great history and future of this magic place called Japan. The Castle grounds covers 60.000 square meters, maybe the largest park in town. It dates back until 1583 when the famous Conqueror Toyotomi Hideyoshi started building it, but was many times looted and rebuilt.
  • Bamboo Forest, Arashiyama

    Bamboo Forest, Arashiyama
    If you make Kyoto the base and center of your travels in Japan, which I would recommend, there a few nice day trips you could start from there. This would be quite smart, because the little town of Kyoto with its 1,5 million citizens attracts the incredible number of 40 million visitors a year. One of the great spots around is Arashiyama. This little town is famous for many neatly restored temples and carved stone-buddhas, which are laid at the sideways.

  • Open Air Museum (Osaka)

    Open Air Museum (Osaka)
    One might has the feeling from afar, that Japan is only about Bling Bling, manga-figures with big breasts and salary men sleeping 2 hour a day, spending 4 hours a day and working 18 hours a day. This is one of the truths in Japan, certainly, but not the only one. This country celebrates modernism and tradition together, maybe like no other.
  • Ryokan

    When you are traveling o Japan you will have various options to take shelter. There might be hotels, hostels, temple-lodging, guesthouses, private lodging and there are ryokans. A ryokan is a very traditional way of sleeping in Japan and quite a must for the dedicated traveler.
  • Daibutsu-Den (Nara)

    Daibutsu-Den (Nara)
    Nara is the one historic spot, where it is said the royal history of the island began. And some there are still some signs of its greatness to be witnessed today. For one, take Daibutsu-Den, which is the biggest wooden house on the planet. And the funny thing is, this version, which was rebuilt in 1709 is only two thirds the size of the original structure!
  • Osaka Aquarium

    Osaka Aquarium
    In most modern Asian countries there are only a few historical sites still in the shape of the original. Because wars and eventually the uprising of industry demanded high victims from the land, and fine landscapes, mountains, shores and greenery just vanished. But still people want to spend their leisure time and if there are few sights, one has to create them.
  • Kiyomizu-Dera

    Kyoto must be the prettiest and most pleasant town of Japan. Certainly it is one of the most historic places of the whole country. Founded in the 7th century and modeled of the great Chinese city of Xian, it became already capital in 794, which is quite speedy in point of view. Only 4 years later the great temple of Kiyomizu was built, one of more than 2000 temples and shrines in Kyoto, which shows the deep religious bounding of the Japanese people.
