Historical Places in Japan

Top Places To Visit

Imperial Palace

Something old, something new. Standing on the site of the Edo castle, The Tokyo Imperial Palace is the official residence of the royal family. The Edo castle was once the seat of the Tokugawa shogun, who ruled Japan till 1847. The Imperial Palace is a beautiful stone-built structure lying in the midst of a beautiful garden. A juxtaposition from the tall, concrete towers of the city. There are guided tours that will take you around the several administrative buildings and a small museum. But, I would recommend you explore this place yourself. The main premises are not open to the public, which could be a bit of a spoiler, but the East Gardens are a great place to get some fresh air away from the noise of the city.

Sanjusangendo Hall

Sanjusangendo is an amazing place; perhaps one of my favorite . According to the legend, this man became a Kannon (basically a kind of god in Buddhism, but there aren’t gods in Buddhism so it is kind of hard to explain). The idea is that he reached enlightenment and arose to the heavens. Now he looks over humans and takes away their pain and suffering. He supposedly has 1000 arms and extends to all 25 planes. There are hundreds of human-sized replications of his figure in this temple, along with a 2-story sized buddha statue. Each statue has 42 arms arranged in 25 rows to reflect the 1000 total arms. The Kannons are guarded by statues of various figures adopted from Hindu religion (i.e. Brahma). They believe these aren’t gods; rather they are guardians of the Kannon. It is pretty awesome!

Tokyo Tower

To get here : Take JR Yamanote (Green Line) from Akihabara to Tokyo Tower, and search for the Tokyo Tower Exit. You need to walk for a while to reach Tokyo Tower. We didn’t go really near the Tokyo Tower, we only want to do a Photostop at Tokyo Tower.

When Brendan and I left on our five-day honeymoon to Japan after permanently departing our home in Sydney, I naturally harbored fears that we would end up unable to communicate or get anywhere....

Given the fact that they are designated by the area and not the street with non-consecutive numbers, finding a particular place in Japan can be quite a task....

Had a early morning flight and I felt too queasy from all that drinking, but well, the memories kept me in a chirpy spirit.I still don't know if Japan as such is the best bloody place or was it because I travelled alone!...
