3 Fascinating Japanese Tourist Attractions

Shinjuku

We’ve spoken already about the tourist attractions of Tokyo, however the most visited tourist attraction in Tokyo is Shinjuku. It is in fact a districshrinet rather than an individual tourist attraction.

It is the skyscraper district and it hails from the 1970s. It’s an extremely crowded commercial area and has a whole host of sites, and you can lose one or two days there without any trouble at all. There are fascinating shopping zones, for example some extraordinary basement food halls sporting all sorts of strange Japanese cuisine. There are some beautiful parks including the Shinjuku Gyoen National Garden.

This is a stunning garden which was originally the residence of one of Japan’s most famous families in the 1600s, after which it became a garden under the management of the Imperial household agency of Japan. It is now a park operated by the National Ministry of the environment.

Extraordinarily this park and garden totals almost 59 hectares with a circumference of around 3 1/2 kilometres. It features French formal gardens, an English garden and a Japanese traditional garden together with a traditional Japanese teahouse.

It is particularly stunning during the cherry blossom season. Should you wish to view the garden it’s worth remembering that it is normally closed on Mondays except during the cherry blossom season and chrysanthemum season, which are from late March to late April each year as well as early November. Otherwise the garden is open seven days a week. There is a stunning greenhouse which is also well worth a visit.monkeys

Jigokudani Monkey Park

Also extraordinary is the Jigokudani Monkey Park. This is located in a hot spring area near Nagano. Steam and boiling water bubble out of the ground, which is frozen, and there are extremely steep cliffs and forests surrounding the park. The major attraction of the park is its population of wild snow monkeys that come down into the park during the winter. [...]

Tokyo, One Of The Worlds Most Livable (And Expensive) Cities

tokyo2No visit to Japan is complete without a visit to Tokyo. In fact chances are you will fly into Tokyo and so you will be right there.

However it’s essential that you set aside at least a week for a stay in Tokyo, there is so much to do and so many things to see.

Tokyo is one of the most populous cities in the world. It is of course the capital of Japan and also its the center of the greater Tokyo area. The Japanese government is found in Tokyo as well as the Imperial Palace which is the home of the Imperial family of Japan.

Japan is made up of 47 prefectures, and Tokyo is officially a “metropolitan prefecture” which makes it unique in Japan, as it has elements of both a city and a prefecture.

The city is broken up into 23 wards, each of which is governed as an individual city. [...]

A Brief History Of Japan

japan12Japan is an ancient country, and there is evidence of habitation in what was known as the Japanese archipelago from around 30,000 BC. This has been called the Japanese Palaeolithic period and was the period when the very first stone tools were used in Japan, as has been found by the evidence.

There is controversy about whether or not Japan was inhabited prior to around 30,000 BC, with some archaeologists supporting the view that habitation goes back 5000 years further. The earliest human bones that have been discovered in Japan have been dated back to around 15,000 years ago.

Subsequent to the Palaeolithic period Japan was inhabited by a hunter gatherer culture and their genetics can be traced through to the contemporary Yamato people of Japan. It is known that they had rudimentary agriculture as well as rudimentary dwellings. There are also some simple examples of very early Japanese pottery from that period.japanese-woman

The first written evidence of the Japanese was around the third century when a Chinese historical text called the Records of the Three Kingdoms makes reference to the Japanese area. It is known that Buddhism was introduced into Japan around that time.

By the period commencing around 600 A.D. Buddhism was well established in Japan.

Similarly as was the case with many other cultures there have been epidemics which have killed large numbers of the Japanese population and one of these was around the year 735 A.D. when a smallpox epidemic killed, according to some experts, somewhere around one third of the population. [...]

Travelling to Japan with Your Pet Dog

When people go on vacation, they want to take their pets with them. This includes traveling to foreign destinations such as Japan. When traveling to Japan with a pet, there are some rules and regulations that a person must be aware of to ensure their pet is allowed to enter the country.

Concern for rabies

Rabies is a disease that can be common in dogs and cats. This disease can also be transfered to humans if they are bitten by an infected animal. Since 1957 Japan has not seen a case of rabies. Before a person is allowed to bring their pet into Japan, they have to prove that the pet has a current vaccination against rabies. The pet will also have to have other vaccinations and proof from the vet. The pet is also required to have a microchip. Japan takes health conditions seriously so they may require your pet to go through a quarantine process.

When the pet arrives in Japan, it is going to be inspected by the officials at the airport. The owners of the pet will cover the costs of inspection. The owner will also have to show not only the vet and shot records but the pet’s license as well. There is an application for inspection that the owner will have to prepare and pay for upon arrival. Any information given to the airline about the transportation of the pet will be shown to Japanese officials. A vet at the facility will look over the records and examine the pet.
If a pet is found to be in good health, it will be allowed to return to the owner. There are only specific airports where pets can arrive. It is the responsibility of the owner to check this before booking a flight. Lastly, the Japanese officials must be given 40 days notice before the pet arrives.

Importance of pet insurance during travel abroad

When taking a pet to Japan it is important to have pet insurance. Learn more about pet health insurance from this site. When adding to an existing policy or opening a new policy be sure to tell the pet insurance company where you will be travelling with your pet. Some policies cover the pet in case they get hurt during the plane ride or while on vacation. It is better to be covered for the unexpected and be prepared in case the pet needs treatment overseas. Read more about top rated plans for dog insurance.

Where to go in Japan with your pet

Traveling with a pet is a lot of work but it is worth it. In Japan, there are many pet-friendly attractions.
1. Ueno Park allows wildlife and dogs to gather in the park and relax. They can also see unique artwork and experience some of the Japanese cultures.
2. Yoyogi Park is dedicated to allowing animals the chance to be off their leash and be able to run free. This park has a larger section for the big dogs and a smaller area for smaller pets.
3. The Mejirodai Sports Ground is another place where pet owners can bring their pets to enjoy the outdoors and look at scenic Japan. Animals have to preregister and provide proof they are free of rabies.

Pet-friendly hotels in Japan

There are even some hotels that will allow pets to stay. Hotel Chinzanso will allow owners to stay with their furry friends. The Best Western in Tokyo will also allow pets to stay provided that the owner cleans up after them. Japan is a great place to visit for both people and pets. As long as the pets have the proper documentation they will be able to accompany their owners on an unforgettable trip.

Staying in Condition during your Visit to Japan

People all over the world like to work out and stay in shape. Working out and exercising is a universal activity that a lot of people do because everyone wants to be healthy and look their best. This is especially true in Japan.

Japanese culture is nearly identical to western culture. While there are some exceptions to this rule, Japanese people like to exercise just like their western counterparts. Gyms, fitness centres and workout classes are available in Japan. People can pay to join one of these clubs for a fee. The fitness clubs in Japan have the same type of equipment that could be found in many western gyms.

There are free weights, treadmills, rowing machines and machine weight systems. Other items such as rowing machines, resistance bands, doorway portable pull up bars, punching bags and medicine balls could also be found in some Japanese gyms. Some commercial gyms have basketball courts and areas for playing tennis.

Japanese people promote working out and staying fit. However, many people do not necessarily join a gym to perform this activity. instead, their culture is designed to keep them fit and trim. Japanese people are not fond of obesity and they do not tolerate it. While there some exceptions to this rule (think sumo wrestlers), for the most part, being a fat person in Japan is seriously frowned upon.

Japanese people do a lot of walking out of necessity and because they want to. Japan is a very small and expensive country. Since it is, many people do not own cars. A lot them have to commute back and forth to work on a subway system. Once they exit a subway car they have to walk almost a mile or so to their jobs.

They could spend anywhere between 2 to 4 hours commuting back and forth to work on a train and then walking for a couple of miles. Many people within Japanese society perform this routine every day and this is one reason why so many of them are able to stay in shape.

Also, Japanese people have active lifestyles. Many of them do not sit around watching television all day. Many people in Japan are forced to get out of their homes to socialize. Unlike Americans or other westerners that entertain in their homes, Japanese avoid this custom because they have limited living space.

Once again, a lot of Japanese people take the train and walk to social functions because cars are not a practical way to get around for many people there. Many people in Japan like to hike, ride bikes and go sight-seeing. Again, these activities do not revolve around their home.

When westerners visit Japan they can stay in shape by mimicking the Japanese lifestyle once they arrive. They can also join a gym and take some classes that promote fitness and health. Exercise routines such as the P90X workout schedule are available in Japan but they are not as popular as they are in the states. Japanese people also perform yoga and other similar western workout practices but once again these routines are not as popular. However, routines such as Tabata do exist and they are very effective for keeping people in shape.

Westerners can also stay in shape in Japan by eating the traditional cuisine which is notably lighter and less fattening than western food. While it is true that western style foods are available in Japan, many Japanese people eat them in moderation. They simply do not consume heavy and filling diets like most people do in the west. People who visit Japan can stay in shape by making it a point to get involved in the Japanese culture and lifestyle once they arrive.

Hiking in Japan – Cultural Landmarks and Stunning Vistas

Japan is home to some of the most beautiful landscapes in the world. Perhaps best known as the land of the cherry blossom, the natural wonders also include sprawling mountains, lush forests and breath taking rivers, lakes and hot springs. The climate is also very different from north to south and at different elevations, you may find snow in one area and warm weather with flowering plants in another.

Though that holy peak, Mt. Fuji, the highest and most mysterious mountain in Japan, is undoubtedly the best known by hikers there is no doubt that many other areas, across the countries many islands are just as spectacular and fun to explore.

At 3,776 m Mt. Fuji on Honshu Island is the highest peak in Japan as well as one of the most beautiful and captivating, with its snow capped peak and the clouds that so often cover it and lend it an air of mystery. The surrounding lakes, the Fuji Go-ko or Five Lakes also allow you to explore the area and give extraordinary views of the mountain itself. As one of the three holy peaks along with Mt. Tate and Mt. Haku, Fuji is often the object of artists, photographers and poets which make this historic mountain a big draw for many visitors looking to explore Japan’s natural wonders and hike the days away. If you’re climbing the mountain, be sure to have proper hiking boots with thick soles and toe guards, as the area is quite rocky. A supportive insole is also a must, as well as good waterproofing and insulation if you’re going when the snow is on the ground.

Moving to Hokkaidō, the Big Snow Mountain in Daisetsuzan National Park is a must for hiking enthusiasts as it is one of the best hiking areas in Japan, as well as the most unspoiled by human hands. The park itself covers over 2300 square kilometers and contains an extreme variety of mountains and valleys, crystal clear snowy mountain lakes, dense forests and rivers too. Not only is the area a hikers paradise, but after a day out exploring you can return to your hotel and spend a relaxing night in the hot springs to rejuvenate your body and mind and prepare for a new adventure tomorrow. Hiking is best when the snow melts, but boots are still recommended over shoes as the terrain is tough with lots of ups and downs. Proper upper ankle and arch support as well as soles rated for rocky ground and gravel, like the ones I use, will be required.

Jumping islands again to south of Kyushu we enter a totally different territory from the snowy areas we’ve been exploring. Being in the southwest, the island of Yakushima is warmer, though still gets snow in the winter, but also has a totally different atmosphere due to being one of the wettest area in the country. The mountains catch passing clouds and cause them to deposit their water in the islands interior, which causes the forests, lakes and streams to be of a totally different sort, closer in look and feel to a rain forest than a traditional Japanese forest. With this wet weather it is important that you bring clothes and hiking boots that have very high waterproofing and soles with extremely good grip. If you’re unsure about whether or not your boots and hiking gear will be up to the task I’d recommend you check out WhatToWearHiking.com for all the inside facts.

There are many different trails to take and special landmarks to stop and marvel at such as the Jōmon Sugi tree, a cryptomeria (known as Japanese Cedar, though not a true cedar) estimated to be from 2,000 – 7,000 years old and is surrounded by an old growth cryptomeria forest. Though not the largest or tallest tree you might ever see, the majesty and feel of the area is impressive and don’t think that the tree isn’t a site to behold. You can take the Kusugawa hiking path or the Arakawa Trail to reach this landmark, but expect the hike to be four to five hours.

These are just a few great examples of some of the most popular hiking spots in Japan, though wherever you go you will be able to find somewhere to explore as the entire country is filled with natural beauty and though not as well known as some areas for hiking, the geography of this mountainous country have made it a real hikers paradise.

How Has Japan Ended Gun Violence?

One of the most appalling situations in America is the amount of gun violence that occurs across our nation. Every week there are dozens of people killed or injured by gun violence and this has been going on for more than a century. It is a terrible indictment on our society and one which must be combated somehow or other.

However today we wanted to consider how other countries, and in this case specifically Japan, has avoided this particular situation. Because just as there are thousands of people being killed or injured in America by guns this is not the case in Japan (or in many other countries).

So what has Japan done to combat gun violence?

Of course the Japanese have a history of weapons use. Japanese history is replete with stories of the Samurai, and Japanese culture is a warrior culture. Just consider what the Japanese did during the Second World War.

So you would assume that a warrior culture with a history of violence would have as bad a problem with gun violence today as is found in the US. However the reality is that it doesn’t.

Lets look at some specific figures. In 2008 the US had a huge number of firearm related homicides, over 12,000.

And in that same year Japan had a tiny number of firearm related homicides, namely 11.

11 fatalities is less than occurs, on some occasions, in one single US school shooting.

Virtually nobody in Japan owns a gun. It is extremely difficult to legally purchase a firearm in Japan, and it is so difficult to do so that even the Japanese mafia, called the Yakuza, do not own many weapons.

There is an extremely strict procedure for buying firearms in Japan and the Japanese can only legally buy and use shotguns and air rifles.

For a detailed explanation of Japanese gun control laws click here.

The result of these laws is that Tokyo is the safest large city in the world. Tokyo is a huge city but has only 59,000 licensed gun owners living there. The handgun murder rate is 200 times higher America than it is in Japan.

Of course there are many things that we should do in America to help reduce our appalling gun violence statistics. The gun laws should be strengthened considerably as US gun laws are some of the loosest in the world. As well as that there should be strict laws about the ownership of gun safes, like these, and every gun owner in America should be forced to buy the best gun safe they can.

Everyone in America should hang their heads in shame. A warrior culture such as Japan has been able to successfully deal with gun ownership and gun violence whereas we in America have been completely unable to deal with it, and the result is a horrifying litany of murders, injuries and accidents as well as school shootings.

We should take our hats off to the Japanese and do our best to emulate them. The Japanese have their act together, we don’t.

I’m Getting To Japan No Matter How Much It Costs

I don’t know what it is but all my life I’ve had an obsession with Japan. Right from my earliest years in education I was learning Japanese and when I was very young my parents took me to Japan as a treat. Whilst I’m sure it was a wonderful holiday I was really a little young to appreciate it, but from that time of always wanted to go back and spend some time in Japan.

And of course because I’ve spent a lot of years learning Japanese I am dying to know how well I can communicate with the local people in their own language. I’m sure my Japanese will be useful to me in some form of career but I’m interested to see how I go with the language face-to-face with real Japanese people.

Sadly getting to Japan won’t be that easy. It’s not that it’s difficult getting there, you just buy a flight. The problem is not so much the practicalities of getting there it’s the cost. Unfortunately Japan is extremely expensive to visit.

I’ve heard some horrifying stories about the cost of travelling in Japan. It seems like everything is about ten times the price of what I would pay for it at home, and it’s become a little frightening trying to work out how I’m going to finance my trip.

I can’t afford to take a long trip, my finances won’t allow anything like that, in fact without taking out a small loan I’m not even going to be able to afford to go at all. The most that I think I can afford, without taking out a much bigger loan, is about two weeks.

And I can only afford that two weeks by stretching my finances to the maximum and taking out a small installment loan.

But I’m not going to let that put me off. I can always spend time working hard when I get back to pay off my installment loan, and I plan to do that. But I’m not going to let the fact that I need to take out a loan put off my trip to Japan. I’ve waited too many years to do this and now it’s time to do it.

Once I’ve got my loan organised, and the money in the bank, I’m going to book a flight to Tokyo. I’m going to spend at least half of my two week holiday in Tokyo because its Tokyo that interests me more than anything else. But again I’m horrified at the possibility of what it will cost me to stay in Tokyo.

Hopefully I can get the biggest loan possible, because I’m told that hotels in Tokyo are enormously expensive and I’ve spent some time online researching the cost of accommodation in Tokyo. It’s horrifying.

But like I say, I’m not letting that put me off.

After a week or so in Tokyo I’m planning to spend my time travelling around the country. I will only have a week to do so so I’m not likely to see more than a small portion of the countryside, but I really want to get out into some small Japanese towns to see how the people live in the countryside.

I’m hoping that a week spent travelling around the countryside of Japan will balance up the week I spend in Tokyo. I expect to see a huge difference between how the people in Tokyo live compared to how the people into the Japanese countryside live.

Once I’m done I’ll write about it here. I’ll tell you all about my Japanese travel experiences and also tell you about how it’s going paying off the loan. And I’ll tell you how much it cost, though I think it will be frightening.

American Sports Nutrition Products Making Their Presense In Japan

Being a huge supporter of the Japanese culture and American, I am constantly showing interest in US businesses making their existence known in overseas markets – after all, I travel to Japan and work for a US businesses that has a strong presence in Japan.

On my last visit, when I saw that health and fitness brands and US sports companies were releasing their world-renowned products I got that tingling sense of American pride, and became rather excited.

You see, for a long time I have been working out with weights as an amateur body builder, and our American brands were pretty hard to come by whenever I visited Japan – even though US companies have a reputation as being the finest makers of creatine nutritional supplements.

Like most matters we believe in creating only the best quality products. And our many sports nutrition companies are certainly not an exception.

Creatine was first found by me when I was doing an internet search online, and I came across this wonderful web site which provides a good selection of sports nutrition products and outstanding reviews.

A particular post from the website got my focus, which supplies a comparison chart of the creatine nutritional supplements that were considered to be the best in the world – click this link to see them – it is also possible to compare the brands to select the most suitable type for your needs.

Many American brands were on the list. But there were also a few other brands on there which are as great in quality – one being Japanese.

In days gone by when I’ve gone to Japan, it’s been rather challenging to buy these products – because it is usually just found in the United States, and when the price of the international transportation is added onto the purchase price it makes it rather pricey to be exported, so I can understand why they don’t have it there.

So no doubt I was pleased once I saw these brands had made their way into the bodybuilding shops – it means that I will not need to pack the nutritional supplements next time I travel there!

It is going to make an enormous difference, because I will now be able to pick it up from any local shop and take it about with me while I travel.

One thing about these American products that makes them extraordinarily great is they’re made from some of the finest and purest quality creatine you’ll ever find out there. Some of the Japanese brands are made from a creatine base that is much poorer in quality when compared to the American ones.

These American brands I consider I consider to be the best on the planet, although I have analyzed pretty much every other brand accessible, and it’s fair to say that there are some other good ones made by other countries, however American products are best! I am aware that this may seem biased given that I’m American.

I know for a fact that our brands of sports nutrition products perform the best in lab testings to ensure that they are of the highest standard and quality before being made available for sale to consumers.

Seeing them here in Tokyo is undoubtedly a sign that is very bright, and I certainly do expect to see many more American companies making their existence in Japan.

And although I’ve been visiting here for some years now, I feel a powerful sense of pride whenever I see products from my home country on Tokyo’s shelves.

Travelling Within Japan

Travelling within Japan is easy because the country has an excellent infra structure. There are high capacity planes flying the relative short distances. This means that very often you can make an affordable late booking should you choose to fly.

If you rather travel by train (more on this later), the country has a relatively dense network of high (and higher!) speed trains as well (Japan has hi-speed trains and trains that go even faster than the hi-speed trains).

Travelling by car is also easy if you can get used to driving on the left hand side of the road.

In addition all (road) signs are in Japanese and in English as well.

But…

Travelling within Japan can also be very difficult. Why you might wonder? The most important reason that travel can be difficult in Japan (but not always is difficult) is that many Japanese do not speak English.

That is to say, they might be able to help you with their limited knowledge of English, but they might not always do so. This has to do with the culture of shame in Japan. I have even experienced a Japanese man turning his back on my when he saw me approaching. So don’t be shocked when this happens to you.

Travel Within the Cities

Traveling in big cities, or rather moving around in big cities is best done using the smaller trains, and the metro or subway.

You might be familiar with the pictures of metro personnel pushing in people into the trains at rush hour to get the most people in. The obvious tip here is to avoid the rush hours. Don’t go out before 9.30, and don’t return around 6pm. From about 7pm metros start to get quieter.

Travel by Car

If you decide to hire a car, realize that in Japan they drive on the left side of the road. If you’ve never done this, don’t worry. It is not as difficult as it looks. The trick here is to make sure you “go with the flow of traffic“. Most mistakes are made when you’re the only car on the road (which rarely happens in Japan).

The number of strange cars you will see in the cities might surprise you. Japanese can be quite extravagant with the cars they produce. Most of the cars are smaller cars, since space is limited.

Big family cars, even for travelling long distances with big families is not something you will see very often. This makes bigger cars also more expensive than the compact versions.

It is not that you won’t see big family cars or SUV’s, but if you do, it is often mainly an expression of status (to which the Japanese are pretty sensitive).

Travel by Train

As mentioned before, travelling between major cities is relatively easy if you know what you’re doing and if you know where you’re going. Planes connect the major and minor cities, and if you’re able to figure out which fast train to get you will get to your final destination pretty quickly.

If you do decide to travel by train it often makes most sense as a tourist to get yourself a so-called rail pass. Figuring out which train runs where, and what you can do with your rail pass can be a bit of a study, so make sure you take enough time to do so. You can read more about the Japanese bullet train here.

Tips on Securing a Personal Loan for Travel

Travelling can be considered a part of almost everyone’s bucket list. As travelling to exotic places such as Japan, it is an eye opener to see cultures different from your own. Because of this, many people really take the time and make the effort to travel. But travelling does not come cheap, making personal loans a popular option to assist one with their travelling plans.

Personal Loan Options

  • Variable rate personal loan. An unsecured loan, this sort of loan allows you the flexibility of paying extra, should you have any excess cash on hand. Although it comes with a slightly higher interest rate, this sort of loan is best for those who do not have a fixed schedule for their income. With the flexible repayment schemes, you can pay whenever, be it on a weekly, fortnightly or monthly basis. Best about this is that you can redraw any amount against your loanable balance, as long as you have made regular payments.
  • Fixed rate personal loan. An unsecured loan, this kind of personal loan requires you to make payments of fixed amounts. Best about this kind of loan is that you will be paying a fixed amount that you have pre-agreed upon. The interest rate will also remain fixed all throughout the time you are servicing the loan. For those who are conscientious about budgeting, this kind of loan will be most applicable as you can choose the loan term. That way you can schedule your repayments properly, depending in your cash flow. Moreover the interest rates are usually lower for this loan.

How to Go About to Get A Personal Loan

With a myriad of banks offering personal loans, all you need to do is apply for a loan. You can even do this online. Just key in your details and you will be notified immediately if you are qualified for the loan. Should all your documents be in order, the loaned amount will usually be credited within the same day. Find out more about personal loan by visiting this website, rateline.com.au.

How to Save for Your Next Japan Holiday

Photo by syvwlch

Going on a holiday would require a lot of planning, especially if it is to be spent in Japan. You need to consider a lot of things to make sure that your vacation will be meaningful; not only for you but for your family as well. Probably the most important of all these considerations is money. You need to make sure that you have enough funds not only for fare, lodging and accommodations; but also for pocket money allotted for purchasing gifts and mementos.

As early as now, you have to begin saving up money. If you think that your present income would not be sufficient, here are valuable ways to earn extra income at home:

  1. Work as freelancer. Freelancing works have been in demand online over the last few years. If you are good in writing, graphic designs, and translations, then you may find that working as a freelancer at home offers a good and consistent opportunity to earn at home.
  1. Work as an administrative assistant. Are you good in administrative work like typing, data entry, and keeping schedules? You could take advantage of the growing administrative work-at-home opportunities. You can work as a virtual assistant, who functions like an all-around administrative assistant, or you can specialize on certain types of skill-related positions. Some well-known administrative assistant positions that you could explore include transcriptionists and customer service specialists.
  1. Teach English. Online English teaching has been a growing trend over the last decade. This is particularly true especially for teaching conversational English. Japanese people, as well as Chinese and Koreans are common customers. The good thing about this is that, unlike the previous two, a class would only take about 25 minutes to an hour every day, but the pay-out is really good.
  1. Set up an online store. Do you have ample time to spend on social media like Facebook? Why not try setting up an online store. All you need to do is create a business page on Facebook. You can then start promoting this to your Facebook community of friends. You will be surprised at how this can be both fun and very rewarding.

With the advent of the outsourcing as a common business practice, more opportunities to earn income online have been opened. This is something that is worth taking advantage of. Outsourcing jobs are very good paying and do not take up as much time as your regular job. All you need to have is a computer and a good, working internet connection. Find out more about the top home work ideas by clicking here.
