Experience Japan with these 10 Activities

Here are 10 must do’s in Japan covering 4 cities in 7 days:

  1. Hiking at Fushimi Inari Shrine in Kyoto
  2. Cycling tour in Osaka
  3. Barbecuing perfectly marbled beef in Osaka
  4. Wearing a kimono while eating a traditional Japanese meal at a ryokan hotel in Nagano
  5. Standing next to hot spring snow monkeys in Nagano
  6. Savoring melt in your mouth sushi in Tokyo
  7. Slurping ramen loudly in Tokyo
  8. Having dinner at a themed restaurant with no dinner in Shinjuku
  9. Learning how to cook Japanese food with a local
  10. Stuffing my face with green tea everything

These are 10 activities that I managed to squeeze into 7 days and that’s a lot! Of course, this isn’t everything Japan has to offer, but it’s the most I could make out of my short week there. At the end of the trip, my stomach was full, my mind was cultured, and my luggage was stuffed with more green tea KitKats than 1 person should be allowed to buy and honestly, it was one of my most memorable trips to date.

Have you done these activities before? Do you have recommendations for other fun activities in Japan? I’d love to hear about your experiences and recommendations in the comment section below! 🙂
