Yomoyama editorial department asked the members participating in YOMOYAMA “favorite travel destination in Japan”!
I love Kyoto the most
Kyoto is a place full of history, I especially like the daimyo era (Warring states period)
Kyoto is one of the famous tourist destinations in Japan.
From 794 to 1869, Heiankyo was the capital of Japan, so it is called the ancient capital.In addition, as a cultural property of the ancient capital of Kyoto, there is a World Heritage List registered property with UNESCO consisting of 17 constituent assets.
Old shrines and temples stand in the city, and you can feel like you have traveled back in time.
Also, one of the must-sees for sightseeing in Kyoto is eating out at Nishiki Market.
The arcade, which stretches for about 400 meters, is lined with about 130 stores, selling a variety of ingredients and dishes such as fresh seafood and vegetables, as well as side dishes and sweets.

Karasawa Hutte, Nagano prefecture
It was the first time I saw such a beautiful mountain covered by autumn foliage in Japan. I spent 2 days walking, sleeping in a tent under a freezing cold just to see its gorgeous beauty.
Karasawa Hutte is a mountain lodge located at an altitude of 2,309m on Mt. Hotaka, Nagano Prefecture.
Karasawa, which is said to be the best place to enjoy the autumn colors in Japan, is visited by many climbers from late September to early October.
Every year, at the peak of autumn colors, hundreds to nearly 1000 tents are set up and crowded. You can enjoy not only the autumn leaves but also the stars in the sky at night, so it is recommended that you stay overnight.

There are many awesome tourist attractions. All the places I have been to are pretty.
Okinawa is an island located about 1,600 km from the capital, Tokyo.
The view of the sea shining in emerald green will never get tired of watching.
It consists of 160 large and small islands, and has a vast area of about 1,000km from east to west and about 400km from north to south. Many tourists from home and abroad visit the area because of its attractive natural environment, unique culture and history.
On the other hand, during the Pacific War, the US military landed and a three-month ground battle was fought, killing nearly 200,000 people.
Even now, there are 31 US military facilities in Okinawa Prefecture, which occupy about 15% of the area of mainland Okinawa.
We recommend not only sightseeing spots but also Okinawan gourmet food.One of the pleasures of traveling is to eat Okinawa’s unique menu such as Soki soba and bitter gourd champuru.

The very first breath of air in Yokohama told me that there was something special about the place. I enjoy the overall ambience of the place and strolling around, especially while watching the and picturesque views at Minatomirai. Moreover, Yokohama was my first outing in Japan so it holds a special place in my heart!
Yokohama is a city on the south side of Tokyo, about 30 minutes away by train.
It was one of the first ports in Japan to open for foreign trade in 1859 and is still lined with many historic buildings.
Not only tourist spots and commercial facilities, but also the sea and nature, and there are many scenic spots such as Japanese gardens.
It is a place that can be enjoyed by family, friends and lovers.
In the Minatomirai area, there is the “Red Brick Warehouse,” which is one of the buildings where you can feel the history that supported the development of modern Japan.
Today, it is a tourist spot where fashionable restaurants and various events are held.
The night view is also very beautiful, so you can enjoy the atmosphere of the city at night.

I like the diverse range of people and culture . I like how there’s so many places to go and see.
Tokyo, the capital of Japan, is a big city with a population of about 14 million. There are many historic sites where you can feel the history of Japan, and there are also spots where you can experience traditional culture.
On the other hand, there are many tourist spots where you can feel the latest technology and anime culture.
In addition, there are many shops where you can enjoy Japanese food culture at low prices, such as sushi, Japanese set meals, and ramen, and it seems that many travelers travel to Japan for the purpose of eating. Please come and visit such a charming city.
A point where you can see the sea of clouds. The point that you can spend time with your family in the great outdoors. The point that children can play in the indoor pool.
Tomamu, located in the center of Hokkaido, is famous as a snow resort.
In winter, you can enjoy the finest powder snow, which is visited by many domestic and foreign tourists.
On the other hand, during the summer green season, you can enjoy the great outdoors surrounded by greenery.
There are grazing cows in the grasslands, and soft serve ice cream made from milk squeezed from the cows is popular.
From summer to autumn, if you are lucky, you can see the sea of clouds.
To see the sea of clouds, you need to ride a gondola early in the morning to climb the mountain.
There is no doubt that it will be a great memory of your trip if you can see the sea of clouds that spread all over the area.

The beautiful sea and historical islands. Also, it is the oldest place in Japan where European culture came in, and the exoticism and the mix of Japanese culture are very exciting. There are few tourists and the sky is wide, so it’s the best to calm down.
Nagasaki Prefecture is located in the Kyushu area located in the southwestern part of Japan.
For about 200 years from the 1600s, Japan had a policy of seclusion and did not trade with other countries.However, the only trade window in Japan that was open to the West was here in Nagasaki.
Against this background, you can still see churches all over the city and scenes where Western and Japanese culture are mixed.
In addition, you can enjoy the night view designated as one of the world’s three major night views, and you can also enjoy gourmet food such as Nagasaki Champon, so it is a perfect place for traveling.
There was also a historic event in 1945 during the Pacific War, when an atomic bomb was dropped by the US military (about a quarter of the population of Nagasaki City died).
I love hot spring very much！
Hakone is located in Kanagawa prefecture and can be reached in about 90 minutes by train from Tokyo.
Not only the natural spots of Lake Ashi where you can see Mt. Fuji and the beautiful autumn colors of Gora.
There are many spots where you can spend your time slowly, such as hot springs and museums.
After enjoying the urban atmosphere of Tokyo, it is recommended to spend a relaxing time in nature next time.
There is also a private hot spring, so it is perfect for relaxing the tiredness of your trip.
