Japan is an awesome place to visit! You can choose to visit there with family or your friends. Be it for attractions, culture or just the food, I recommend one should visit Japan once in their lifetime.

Here are 10 excursions you can add to your bucket lists when planning a trip to the country!

1. The Robot Restaurant in Tokyo is one of a kind. Japanese culture and robots together along with some beer and snacks is just totally the first day thing to do!
