Eat in a 3 Star Michelin Restaurant in Hiroshima

 

People mostly visit Hiroshima for the cultural and historic attractions, but you’ll need to eat while you’re there too! And if you are in the mood to treat yourself, you can’t do any better than the 3 star Michelin restaurant, Nakashima. It’s kaiseki food that is served up here, which is traditional Japanese multi-course fare. There is no a la carte choice, but a tasting menu of various dishes, which is a great way of exploring lots of Japanese food in one sitting. The highlight is Matsutake mushrooms served with pike eel.

 

Learn How to Roll Your Own Sushi

 

While you are in Japan, there is absolutely no doubt that you will be chowing down on plenty of sushi for breakfast, lunch, and dinner. But wouldn’t it be impressive if you could actually learn how to make sushi for authentic Japanese dinner parties back at home? The Tokyo Sushi Academy is absolutely the place to pick up this skill. Classes are both educational and fun, and you’ll learn how to make different types of sushi such as California rolls and Nigiri.

 

Watch the Autumn Leaves Change Colour on Miyajima Island

 

Miyajima Island is said to be the island where God dwells, and it’s one of the most scenic places in all of Japan. Without a doubt, the most spectacular time of year to visit the island is during the autumn time. In fact, there is a park called Shukkei-en, where a Maple festival is held every October, specifically to behold the beautiful red and russet tones of the leaves on the island.

Get a Stellar View of Osaka at the Top of the Umeda Sky Building

 

The Umeda Sky Building may not be the tallest structure in Osaka, but believe us when we say it has the very best observation deck. The deck is actually a bridge that connects two parts of the building, and the deck is a donut shape so that you can get a 360 degree panorama of the city. As it’s totally exposed, the winds there can be pretty strong, but it’s well worth braving the elements. From the deck’s high of 170 metres, you can even see as far as Awaji Island on a clear day.

 

Take Tea at Rikugien Garden

 

If you are looking for some peaceful respite from the bustle of Tokyo City, Rikugien is a park hidden away in the centre of the city. There are lawn areas, a flower garden, and a forest, but the highlight is the teahouse where you can experience an authentic Japanese tea ceremony, and take the time to replenish your body and mind with a few moments of peace and a steaming cup of green tea.
