Where To Go In Japan Part 2!
Fuji Five Lakes and Shiraito Falls
We stumbled upon this YouTuber, internationally ME, who has enormous content about Japan. We recommend checking out the Shiraito Falls and Fuji Five Lakes if you are interested in sight seeing. Unlike the busy streets of Tokyo, it is relaxing to kick back and enjoy the view.
One of the five lakes we recommend is the Kawaguchi Lake since you get the whole view of Mount Fuji. However, you can never go wrong in checking out the other lakes.
When is the best time to go see Mount Fuji?
Definitely go early in the morning so the skies are clear. Going in the morning will also give you more time to head over to Shiraito Falls and enjoy nature's beauty. The waterfalls are gorgeous and makes you fall in love with Japan.
Get your bus tickets before your trip to Japan. If you do not reserve your tickets, you will have to wait late afternoon for the bus (we did not know this and had to wait).
Here is the site to reserve your seats: http://highway-buses.jp/course/kawaguchiko.php
Tokyo Sky Tree
Near Tokyo Sky Tree, there are many gift shops, bakeries, and restaurants to check out. One of the main attractions of Tokyo Sky Tree is the view of Tokyo. Some suggest going at night so that you don't have to wait in line. However, we never had any issues and entered immediately.
Besides checking out the main tourist attractions, we highly recommend just getting lost and walk around. You never know what hidden gems you are going to find.
Best Time To Visit Japan?
The best time to visit Japan is in the last week of March to the first week of April. This is the perfect time to see the beautiful cherry blossoms. Japan in the summer is ridiculously humid and you are tempted to buy cold drinks at every vending machine you see. Lastly, if you go in the winter, you might have to pack more clothes. It is recommended to pack light when travelling to Japan so that you can carry your luggage on the bus without any problems. Bus rides in Japan can get packed at peak hours. Moreover, you can bring more souvenirs for friends and families.
Our next blog will be about places to eat, types of foods and snacks to try, and proper eating manners.
