Around 800AD, one of the ancient civilizations of our planet was being created. During the Golden Era of the Khmer Kingdom, one of the most power empires in Southeast Asia gave rise to magnificent art, culture, & architecture. These great inventions became one of the few wonders of the world that still amaze people throughout generations and still hold a great impact in present-day Cambodian society. Angkor National Museum takes visitors through a journey back in time from the creation to the highest point of Khmer civilization.
This article is about a remarkably charming place with a notably hard-to-pronounce name. Are you a photographer? Then come and frame your perfect moment. Or are you a history bluff?
Back from KINOSAKI ONSEN which was still lovely and where I took so many baths, I’m trying to put the pics on the website but from where I am it doesn’t seem to work , will try later riddle… it’s like a crunchy cookie and it has legs and I had it as an appetizer for dinner in my minshuku in TSUMAGO….. what is it? Well I went back to T SURUYA RYOKAN which I highly recommend since the owner is nice and speaks English, he even advised me to see the fireworks, and the ryokan is in the center of town. I spent two days basically hopping from onsen to onsen and doing nothing else.
Dining room of a gassho-zukuri farmhouse More than a dozen gassho-zukuri farmhouses in and around Ogimachi are now functioning as minshuku , family run, Japanese style lodgings. An overnight stay at one of these farmhouses is a highly recommended experience, as it is a great way to experience a traditional Japanese family home and get more intimate with gassho-zukuri buildings. In the traditional style, guest rooms come with tatami mat floors and a low table. During the night, futon are spread out to sleep on. Baths and toilets are typically modern but shared.

After my brief stop in Okayama , I followed my road until Iya valley, on Shikoku, spending two nights at a mountain hotel. I voluntarily chose a remote and little frequented area in order to recharge my batteries, far from the hordes of tourists. As always, the quality of the bath was one of my main criteria when I chose the hotel and this one didn't disappoint...it is accessed via a small cable car: The view and atmosphere up there definitely lived up to my expectations...simply amazing...
I would actually have to recommend against Himeji, there is currently major construction going on right now and the entire castle is encased in a giant scaffold until like 2014 or something. If you like history and culture though, consider Asakusa (Tokyo) Kamakura (Kanagawa prefecture, near Yokohama) Kyoto (Kinkakuji, Ginkakuji, Kiyomizudera, Philosopher's Path, Arashiyama, etc.) Nara Uji (like 20 minutes from Kyoto in the same direction as Nara) Probably not time to do all of it, you could spend 5 days in Kyoto alone seeing all that stuff, but it will make for a fun trip. Definitely get the JR Rail Pass by the way it's awesome.

Modern Tokyo has arisen from the ashes left after the bombing of WW2. Tokyo is a unique Japanese version of a 21st Century city. Modernistic skyscrapers cast shadows over ancient temples.
Japan Japan is known equally as a hard working, hi-tech country obsessed with miniaturising everything and as a land of ancient temples, martial arts and origami. Whichever definition appeals to you more, you will find plenty to satisfy you, from the bustling neon capital of Tokyo to the ancient temples and shrines of Kyoto. All set against spectacular natural scenery such as Mount Fiji and bubbling volcanic hot springs. On top of all this, the Japanese people are famous for being friendly and gracious hosts, especially to tourists who can expect a warm welcome to one of the most interesting countries in the Far-east.

19. Re: Japan Deluxe Tours I took this tour package back in 2008 and had a wonderful time. My sister and I had never traveled with our mother before as a family and decided that she would enjoy an experience of going to Japan . My wife came with the 3 of us and we extended our stay in Japan after the tour package was over so we could visit her grandmother in Northern Japan. Although all of us are of Japanese decent, we were all born an raised in the US.
I want to go
