What to do and what to see
Mount Fuji is one of the symbols of the country.
There are many legends and superstitious beliefs connected with it, for example: if you see it on New Year's night in your dreams it means good luck. Those who want to get on top can do it on their own; the most favorable months for this are July and August. One of the options is to stay overnight near the Five Lakes (Inn Fujitomita, Koe House), wait for a good weather and go.
Kyoto can be called the cultural capital of Japan thanks to Temple Kiyomizu-dera, Golden Pavilion Kinkaku-ji, the Silver Pavilion Ginkaku-ji and cherry trees of the Philosopher Roads. The Ryōan-ji Garden is famous for the fact that you always see only 14 stones, but in fact they are 15. In the quarter Gion it is interesting to watch geisha (do not confuse it with a quarter of the ‘red light district’ Shimabara). Kyoto is a leader in the number of ryokans, hotels in a traditional Japanese style with certain rules a list of which is even sometimes sent to the customers after the booking (Hakone Ginyu, Hiiragiya Ryokan, Tomiya Ryokan, Yachiyo Ryokan). For example, the ladies are advised not to use perfume as during a meal the odor can prevent the perception of flavors of Japanese cuisine.
From Hiroshima there is a ferry to the island of Miyajima (Itsukushima). The Sanctuary of the island is the national wealth. The ritual gates Torii Passing under the water with the high tide are often depicted on souvenirs.
