Scottsdale, AZ – July 16, 2015
The wanderlust bug seems to bite people especially hard in these hot summer months, and many travel sites and magazines are taking advantage of that by producing lists of amazing summer destinations.
For every well-known city within any given country, there are thousands upon thousands of smaller sights and experiences waiting to be discovered. Japan is a land that offers endless magnificence and rich tradition. It is fit for the most avid of outdoor explorers and the most energetic big city folk.
Tokyo is a common, bustling hub for tourists, but it is far from the only notable asset of the country.
Nagano is a breathtaking option for outdoor lovers, and offers prime opportunities to climb the Japanese alps, play in the snow, or soak in a hot spring. Osaka is another popular destination, offering something for everyone with its rich history, modern influences, and expansive downtown area.
Two hours south of Osaka is the pensive, peaceful area of Koyasan, where the heart of Japanese Buddhism dwells. It is a sacred getaway for those looking for ultimate relaxation and an intellectual experience for the senses.
Yet another vibrant location is Okinawa, which some compare to a Hawaii within Japan. It consists of several small islands and a subtropical climate for those looking for a warm beach getaway.
Even locals will tell you that the possibility for discovery and enjoyment in Japan is truly endless. However, as with all new destinations, any traveler should be aware of the health risks specific to the area. Travelers to Japan, especially those traveling for a significant amount of time or who have pre-existing conditions, should ensure they have Hepatitis A, Hepatitis B, Japanese Encephalitis, and Rabies vaccines.
