  1. My best ten list:1.嵐山 2.富士山 3.伏見稲荷大社4.金閣寺5.東京タワー 6.清水寺7.貴船神社8.鴨川9.琵琶湖10.下鴨神社

  2. 白川郷に二回行ったことがありますよ。

  3. The thing that amused me when I learnt it awhile ago, is how foreigners say temple names like kinkakuji 金閣寺. For some reason people call it kinkakuJi temple in English, but the sound for temple Ji 寺 is already part of the name, so it is actually Kinkaku temple.
    So saying Kinakuji temple is like saying Kinkaku temple temple.

  4. 浅草の雷門に行ったことがあります!とても楽しかったです!

  5. 滋賀県の琵琶湖も断トツ推薦しますね、
    急がば回れの語源でもあるし、
    ちなみにスワンボートを。。。

  6. I have been to 1, 3, 5 and 10, I would love to go to Okinawa in my next trip. Miyajima was my highlight in the last trip highly recommend it.

  7. Me and my family might be going to Japan soon. Part of the family is 2 wheelchairs, so is Tokyo a decent accessible place? Or should we go to Osaka, or etc?We'll probably need to take a train at one point, are those accessible?
    need tips so please tell me if you have any.

  8. Perhaps the "love water" did work, but in an unexpected way. It brought you many admirers from across the internet!

  9. I've been to Japan twice so I've been lucky enough to have visited all these places with the exceptions of kõkyo, shirakawa go and Nikkõ, but I'm going back again in may, and I'll be visiting Nikkõ, so 8/10 ain't bad. Kinkaku-ji gave me some amazing photos, but Miyajima island sits in my mind as my favourite. As well as Kiyomizudera. Where I bumped into a friend from england, by sheer serendipity!! I am looking forward to seeing naoshima.. I can't wait to go back. 😁 Also, I need me a big old bowl of greasy ramen noodles. うまい!!!
    Only three more weeks to go, やった!

  10. When I was in Hiroshima last June, I was lucky to fall on the Toukasan festival which was very interesting to watch (so many people in yukatas!). Definitely recommend the Itsukushima shrine too.

  11. I’m going to Japan for two weeks in May and quite a few of those places are actually ok my list!

  12. 築地は? 外国人にとってその辺りが面白いと思います。

  13. We’re going to Japan in October! We may extend our stay in Osaka. Any tips for the area? Thanks friends! 🙏🏽

  14. This video makes me miss Japan again.
    So much to visit there. Mount Fuji, Kawaguchiko Lake areas, Chureito Pagoda, Himeji Castle, Hakone also popular to visit esp in Sakura season recently so beautiful.
    日本が大好きです!

  15. Risa is so cute. Japanese girls are so beautiful ,cute and sweet. I want to make a friend 😍😍😍

  16. Been to 8 out of the 10 you mentioned. I would add Ishiyama-dera. Not many people know it, but it is very important because it is where Murasaki Shikibu wrote "Genji Monogatari" :))

  17. I have been to Asakusa and the Tokyo Imperial Palace. They were both lovely. There is also the Tokyo Tower and Roppongi district, though I went during the middle of the day and there wasn't much going on at the time because everyone was at work hahaha
