1. Japan created the first ever Bullet Train
Have you ever appreciated the unique technology our era has provided today? and would want to experience one in full speed! Fun fact Japan is where the first ever bullet train(shinkansen) was created it. The bullet train was first ever created in Japan on October 1st, 1964 it was highly demanded because they wanted a main route for citizens of Japan to travel from the Capital of Japan “Tokyo”. The bullet train helped people get from one part of the island to the other in the quickest and efficient way, expanded a lot of growth for the economy because it connected people from all over.
2. Japanese Domestic Market “Tokyo Drift”
One of the most well known movie for drifting is “Fast and Furious: Tokyo Drift” this movie brought attention to foreign engineering in America, because the bang for your buck is unreal! Pay a solid adequate price, for a machine that can last unusually longer then the average cars. Sounds good, cheap and efficient. Also, if you want to see where the Godzilla gtr-r34 originated then Japan is the perfect place to check out!
3. Japan has a variety of vending machines
The country alone has about 5.52 million vending machines! from having ramen cooked up in seconds and vended out, too hot tea and coffee, umbrella, beers, groceries, ice cream, etc etc..
4. Japan has cherry blossoms tree!
The Cherry Blossom has a core meaning that goes centuries back in history, it represents the fragility and beauty of life. As cliche as it sounds, it kind of is true because the cherry only blossoms in a span between January – May. If you ever visit Japan you can catch this scenic moment between these months, where pink pedals are surrounding the environment.
5. Japan’s enjoyable scenic views.
Japan has a vast terrain of nature, 2/3 of the country is full of forests and mountains! From mountains to volcanoes to Caves to Waterfalls etc. These are just a few things that astonishes me, but Japan provides more nature in one island then what you can see in a whole continent.
6. Japan is safe.
Heading to a foreign country or starting a new adventure you want to make sure you make it back home, well statistic shows that Japan has one of the lowest crime rates. Usually only about two gun shot homicides are active on a yearly basis, proves it has low crime rates, but be aware crimes are still always possible in any country!
7. Japan supplies exquisite cuisine.
Sushi and Wagyu/Kobe Beef is off the charts! Sushi to Japan is a culture they follow by because it is art to them, but edible. When the apprentice are trained to learn what is the best complementary of ingredients to perfect a roll. The apprentice must have at least 10 years of training from a master chef. Wagyu/Kobe Beef is another big thing Japan has been known for other then Bullet Trains, because this meat is a delicacy valued for it’s flavor, tenderness, and fatty, well-marbled texture! A strain of Japanese Black cattle.
8. Tokyo Skytree
This building in 2010 broke one of the world record for tallest building in the world at 2,080 ft, but now holds second due to Burj Khalifia in Dubai! This is a reason why Tokyo is such a cool city because the infrastructure is amazing, the building itself is “seismic proofing” meaning earthquake proof. The architecture who designed the building thought it out carefully because of all the natural disaster near the Pacific Ocean.
9. Japan is clean.
Who would want to visit a place that is crusty, musty and dusty? I wouldn’t… This is one reason why Japan should be on top of your bucket list because the society itself is clean. The citizens of Japan from workers, adults, and children’s they all are programmed to have some decency and respect the earth. Everyone there knows how to clean up after themselves and more than that, they encourage people to clean up by giving baggies in any purchase, just for you to use this bag as a trash bag for the day! Trash cans are not scattered all over the place in Japan, this proves that Japan has a standard for everyone not to litter.
10. Tokyo DisneySea
In America they introduced the animation entertainment company Walt Disney World and Disney Land, well Japan has licensed the characters from Disney and implements it into this Theme Park called Tokyo DisneySea located on the outer coast of Japan. This resort theme park hit 13.46 million visitors in 2016 making it fifth most visited theme park in the world! This resort is has different ports named Mediterranean Harbor, Mermaid Lagoon, Lost River Delta and American Waterfront.
