Japan for metropolitan fans

You love the magic of big cities? Then you've come to the right place on this densely populated island. The capital offers a lot to see with all its museums, skyscrapers, the "Tokyo Sky Tree" and sometimes very modern parks. Osaka, with its exciting mix of modern Skyscraper architecture and traditional temples, is also a must-see. Somewhat smaller, less touristy, but nevertheless absolutely worth seeing is the city Hamamatsu, which is located directly at the Pacific Ocean.

Whale meat is the new sushi. For the Japanese, eating the sea mammal is an integral part of their culture, even if they are severely criticized for it.
