Japan Travel Tips – Things To See April 20, 2021

Posted by Maniac in Japan Travel Tips, Uncategorized.

Welcome back to another Tuesday for Japan Travel Tips. If you’re unfamiliar with this series, we share with you some of the best independently produced documentaries designed to help international tourists who wish to visit Japan. After surviving 2020, you can be sure I REALLY want to travel, and why not travel to a country that is the birthplace of some of my favorite games of all time?

If you’ve been following this show so far, you’ve already learned how to get around Japan, how to get a place to stay, and how to feed yourself without looking odd. Today, we’re going to give some tips about places to go and sights to see while in Japan ranging from its natural beautiful environment to its unique landmarks. Japan also features two MAJOR theme parks, Universal Studios Japan and the Tokyo Disneyland Resort and we are going to talk about THEM too. The country is ENORMOUS with TONS of things to do, so we’re going to hold off talking about larger sites, and focus on some of the coolest things that can be done while visiting Japan. Just be aware these tips were produced before world events shut down most travel, but we believe it is always useful to see what is out there.

First up, I want to talk about the video that inspired this whole editorial series. For those of you who might be visiting Tokyo, you might be curious about the best things you can do in the site. So first up, we’re going to highlight the famous YouTube Channel Abroad in Japan. In this video, he gives his tips on some of the best places to take a date in Tokyo. I know some of you may travel alone or with platonic friends, but after watching it I can imagine it would be useful for everyone interested in seeing Tokyo’s coolest sights and sounds.

Tokyo isn’t the only major city in Japan, there’s also cities like Osaka, which has a reputation for being a beautiful place to get incredible food. For this video I’m going to highlight the YouTube Channel TokiYuYu, where they show their list of things to do in Osaka and give their best tips for staying in the area.

Since we’re still on the subject of Osaka, one of the biggest tourist sites in the city is Universal Studios Japan. It’s a great park that still offers some of the most beloved classic rides you can’t find at the Universal Parks located in the US. Check out this great look at the park courtesy of Flying the Nest!

Oh and did you know Universal Studios Japan has recently opened a certain LAND…based on a certain…SUPER…game property? The very first Super Nintendo World successfully opened earlier this year at USJ, and it includes two unique rides, a beautiful environment that looks like it was taken right from the games, a restaurant, and a ton of interaction. TDR Explorer did this FANTASTIC look at Super Nintendo World!

If you happen to be a fan of a certain mouse and let’s be honest who isn’t, you probably want to check out the Tokyo Disneyland Resort. While it is smaller than Florida’s Walt Disney World, they have generally been declared some of the finest parks in the entire Disney empire. The rides are great, the parks are beautiful and the food is actually affordable. Paolo from Tokyo shared his best tips and hacks for visiting Tokyo Disneyland or Tokyo DisneySEA.

If you plan to stay within the Tokyo Disneyland Resort at one of their hotels, the famous YouTube Channel ReviewTyme, who has made a name for themselves making videos reviews of the biggest theme parks on the planet, did this great video on the Tokyo Disneyland Resort.

What about more natural attractions for people who would like a physical challenge? Would you climb a mountain for a bowl of noodle soup? The adorable AkiDearest is back to do exactly that. She had heard of a famous noodle chef who had his shop located at the end of a mountain hike trail. Could this anime fan make it? Watch and see.

One of the most iconic natural landmarks of Japan is Mount Fuji. Believed to be the home of a supervillain’s volcano lair (Ed Note: citation needed) the mountain is absolutely breathtaking. Hikers from all walks of life have the chance to climb the mountain and take in a view of one of the most breathtaking sunsets on Earth! Here’s YouTuber Sharlmeleon, with her alternate account Sharla in Japan, who made an incredible video about the climb. I’m not much of a hiker, but after watching this video I want to witness it for myself.

Hope you’re liking the series so far. Just be aware we are merely scratching the surface of all the things you can actually do in Japan with these videos. Our intention is to focus on more in depth sites with dedicated articles at a later time. Next week, we’ll be highlighting the Mecca of Otaku. Stay tuned!
