Kyoto, Tokyo & Cherry Blossom – Spring in Japan 2017

My first time in Japan with my sister.

We visited Kyoto (京都市), Japan’s Spiritual Heart, with its numerous classical Buddhist temples, sublime gardens, imperial palaces, Shinto shrines.

We visited also Nara (奈良), Japan’s first permanent capital in year 710, located in the Kansai region of Japan. With eight Unesco World Heritage Sites and Nara Park with over 1,200 wild sika deer, is one of the country’s most rewarding destinations.

We spent one day at Tokyo Disneyland and Tokyo DisneySea, always an amazing experience.

Another amazing experience was the excursion at Mt. Fuji (富士山), is another national symbol of the country; located on Honshu Island, is the highest mountain in Japan at 3,776.24 mt.

Our last stop was Tokyo (東京), the populous capital of Japan, is a city that mixes traditional and ultramodern elements, as you can guess by observing the historical temples that stand next to the skyscrapers with neon lights.

We had the opportunity to visit Japan during the Cherry Blossom season; also known as “Sakura” (さくら), made our trip even more special.
