Japan is the right blend of activity and calmness, offering you a variety of unforgettable moments. It’s a hotspot for many tourists with research revealing that over 100,000 people from the U.S. visited last year alone. There are plenty of things to see and do when visiting Japan, and it will likely take several visits to tick everything off your bucket list. For instance, there are epic expeditions outdoors you can’t have anywhere else. Whether traveling for the first time or being a frequent visitor to Japan, here are fun some things you can do in the land of the rising sun.
Take your taste buds on a culinary adventure
Maid eateries are undoubtedly Japan’s most well-known themed eateries. They’ve expanded beyond mere espresso and cake with over 200 cafés nationwide. You may play games, watch live performances, and even dress up in bunny or cat ears to enjoy the fun while feasting on delicious food. If you have any questions about the activities, ask your server, who will be dressed in maid attire. Of course, the cuisine is themed with tasty meals adorned with sauce patterns, bright decorations, and beautiful figures. The topping on the figurative cake is the ‘magic spell’ placed on your meal to make it sweeter.
Go diving in exotic islands
Diving in Japan offers a unique underwater experience with various beaches and islands to explore. The country is surrounded by the ocean, making it an ideal destination for diving enthusiasts. Plenty of dive shops cater to English speakers on Ishigaki, Kerama Islands, and Okinawa mainland. June is a good time for diving, and the Amami Islands and Okinoshima, also known as the Oki Islands, are popular spots to visit. Diving in Japan offers a range of experiences, from ice diving in Hokkaido to witnessing the mysterious underwater city off the coast of the Ryukyu Islands. Overall, the country provides a fantastic opportunity to explore the underwater world, and you can search Kerama Islands Okinawa for a unique marine life experience.
Experience real-life Mario Karts
How often have you and your friends believed you’d outperform your favorite kart racing characters like Super Mario, Princess Peach, and Luigi in a real-life Mario Karts race? If you’ve ever felt betrayed by the most stressful Rainbow Road Mario Kart circuit, now is your opportunity to make amends. MariCAR allows you to race around Tokyo’s streets in a supercharged Mario Kart costumed as your chosen character. As you rush to the finish line, zip through neon-lit buildings and smash it over Shibuya, the world’s busiest junction. You must obtain an international driver’s permission to earn pole position, so remember to sort that out before you fly.
Discover Monkey Mountain
Have you ever longed to be surrounded by hundreds of monkeys in their natural habitat, free to scamper about you? Monkey Mountain is the location to do it. Visit Kyoto’s Arashiyama area to see the incredible Iwatayama Monkey Park, sometimes known as “Monkey Mountain.” While the monkeys are wild, they are already accustomed to being around humans, so this is a terrific chance to get up close and personal with the amusing creatures. You may buy a bag of monkey chow and give it to them at the Rest Hut to impress your new monkey pals. That is another incredible experience you should not miss, plus you will be treated to spectacular vistas.
