100 things to do in Japan

Japan is an incredible country with a vibrant culture and stunning natural beauty. Here is a list of some interesting and fun things to do while visiting Japan.

1 Photos at a photo booth.
These photo booths are known as Purikura and are a fun activity to do with friends and provide a cool souvenir to keep.
Step 1: Pose it up! The screen will even suggest some cute (kawaii) poses.
Step 2: Editing! Here you can “enhance” your look with bigger eyes, smooth skin, make-up or have fun with cartoons or text.
Step 3: Print! Select your faves. Make sure you cut them up and share with you friends.

2 Karaoke
Karaoke originated in Japan as has spread all over the world ever since. Karaoke bars have private rooms you can hire. If you like to drink you can choose a “Nomihoudai” package which is “All you can drink” for a certain time frame (usually 2 hours). A little liquid confidence doesn’t go astray and soon you’ll be singing “My heart will go on” better than Celine Dion herself!

3 Onsen
A visit to the onsen is the perfect way to relax after a hard days sightseeing. An onsen is a public bath filled with naturally hot water from geothermally heated springs. Hot water is channeled from the earth from active volcanic areas into outdoor or indoor pools. The water contains many minerals as has many therapeutic benefits. Typically, visitors to the onsen are not allowed to wear bathing suits so a naked bath with strangers can be a very unusual experience. It takes a little getting used to but it’s worth it to soak away those tired muscles.
