If you're thinking about going to Japan, don't make the mistake of spending your whole trip in Tokyo! There's much more to the fun and enigmatic country, including the beautiful city of Osaka! That's where you'll find the famous Bunraku Puppet Theatre, and if you're there in March you can catch a clash of giants in one of the largest sporting events in the country, the Sumo Spring Grand Tournament!
There are many other cities in Japan that are worth seeing, including the peace memorial in Hiroshima, the Shofukuji Temple in Fukuoka, and skiing in Sapporo. Japan has its own unique take on nearly everything, so don't miss out!
