There are not only plenty of worth a visit, but also a lot of less renowned temples, sanctuos and cities. I asked some travel bloggers for this post to share what they think is Japan’s most beautiful spot.
1. Fushimi Inari Shrine in Kyoto
Fushimi Inari is also a lovely, very popular place to be included on your Japanese road. In Kyoto, it really is a beautiful and significant location. The Fushimi Inari Shrine is the ancestral religion of the people of Japan and it is a very powerful Shinto.
Follow the path up the mountain when you visit Fushimi Inari and you can have a magnificent view of Kyoto. Take photos of the famous torii orange gates–thousands of which are in transit.
2. Miyajima Island
The Island of Miyajima, for a good reason, has been surnamed the’ Island of Gods.’ One of the most beautiful places in Japan. This UNESCO World Heritage site. Miyajima is only accessible by boat on the coast of Hiroshima.
The deep blue of the ocean, the yellow Mount Misen forest, and the lack of vermilion in the Miyajima shrines contrast beautifully.
3. The Blue Pond near Hokkaido
The Blue Pond on Hokkaido is a magical place outside Furano. Magnesium is dissolved in the liquid. The water has a milky, blue color. You can walk along its banks along a path of trees and walk across part of the fairy country. It is because not only the color of the water, but also the cluster of dead trees sticking out of the pond like testimonies a time before the pond existed.
The Blue Pond is not overcrowded even in the high season in the summer during Furano’s lavender fields. From every perspective, you can take beautiful photos along the way. During winter, the Blue Pond completely changes its profile. In a world of white and gray it’s the only color spec.
4. Himeji Castle in Himeji
Situated in Himeji, a town in Hyōgo Prefecture in the Kansai region of Japan, Himeji castle is a beautiful hilltop castle. Through Osaka or Kyoto, you can easily reach it.
Because of the beautiful white paint, the castle is one of Japan’s most beautiful castles and is also known as the White Heron Castle. The complex comprises over 83 defensive buildings dating from the feudal period.
Also, a World Heritage site is Himeji Castle. It was not rebuilt due to war, a fire or an earthquake, in contrast to Osaka Castle and other Japanese castles. This is why it’s recognized as Japanese castle architecture’s finest examples.
