In this restaurant, you can either choose to have their classic Tonkotsu ramen, or customize your own bowl!

Fuji is one of the most famous symbols of Japan, which is why travelers all over the world make sure to pay a visit to the mountain whenever they’re heading to the country.

Another famous tourist spot in Japan is Lake Ashi. This lake is just close to Mt. Fuji so when you’re in the area, it’s best to drop by both stops. Lake Ashi is the largest lake in the Kanagawa prefecture. Aside from the beautiful view of Mt. Fuji from the lake, you can also see two other mountains that are just as stunning — Komagatake and Kamiyama. Lake Ashi isn’t just there for you to look at, you can board two “pirate ships,” Royal II and Queen Ashinoko, to explore the lake for over an hour! Before boarding the ships, make sure you get a photo with the famous photo spot, the Gate of Peace at Hakone Shrine.

If you feel like shopping for clothes, they’ve got Uniqlo, GU, Gap, Gucci, Bvlgari, and Chanel. For tech junkies, they have Big Camera, Apple, and Sony. There’s also a shopping complex if you want a one-stop place for numerous stores, just head on over to Ginza SIX.

And of course, shopping in Japan is never complete without a visit to Don Quijote, the most popular souvenir and knick-knacks store for locals and tourists alike!

    Sumo Practice: While spending in Japan is definitely worth it, there are also some must-visit destinations that you can go to for free! Starting off your 12th day is watching sumo practice, totally free of charge. If you go to an actual sumo competition, it will be quite costly, so watch a sumo practice instead!

    Sensoji Temple: Next up is Asakusa’s famous attraction, the Sensoji Temple. This Buddhist temple is the oldest in Tokyo.

    Hachiko Statue: It’s like hitting two birds with one stone! The other most photographed attraction in Japan, located just beside Shibuya Crossing, is the Hachiko Statue! Hachiko was a Japanese Akita dog known for his loyalty to his owner, Hidesaburo Ueno. Hachiko waited for Ueno at Tokyo’s Shibuya train station for over nine years following his death, hoping for his owner to return. Hachiko is known as the most devoted dog and people love him for it, which is why the line for a photo with the Hachiko Statue is understandably very long, but it will be worth it!

What to do in Osaka?

Now that you’ve maximized your time in Tokyo, let’s take a trip to Osaka for your last two days in Japan! Osaka is known for Dotonbori, the Osaka Castle, takoyaki, okonomiyaki, and the bright nightlife.
