& Landscapes

Mount Fuji

Fuji is Japan’s highest mountain and an active volcano. Watching the sunrise at its summit is highly recommended, but there’s lots more to do in the area. Visit the Fujiyoshida Sengen Shrine, take an Onsen (Japanese hot spring) bath, enter the mountain’s lava caves, and even go skiing.

Itsukushima Shrine

Built in the 12th century, the Itsukushima Shrine is one of the finest examples of classic Japanese architecture. It’s known for its iconic ‘floating’ gate, but also includes multiple buildings that rise above the water on columns. The shrine is surrounded by beautiful natural forest – bring your camera to snap some cherry blossoms in the spring.

Hanami

Every year during spring, the Japanese celebrate the arrival of the famous pink cherry blossoms. Tetsugaku No Michi – also known as the Philosopher’s Path – is one of the best places to see them. To celebrate hanami in true Japanese style, enjoy a picnic while sitting under a cherry tree.
