The season of Sakura in Japan signals a colorful time when Japanese cities are decked out in cherry blossoms. During this season, both Japanese locals and tourists take part in the tradition of hanami or "blossom watching." People host picnics under the blossoms and take in nature's beauty. At night, many cities light up and shine a spotlight on the blossoming trees creating a romantic atmosphere.
5. Tokyo is one of the most exciting cities in the world
Bustling nightlife, incredible food, and spectacular sightseeing make Tokyo a must-visit destination. Tokyo is a global city that mixes the high-tech and ultramodern with elements of traditional Japanese culture. Must-see sites include the Meiji Shinto Shrine with its towering gate and surrounding woods, the Imperial Palace, and large public gardens.
