My next port of call was Japan. If you visit Japan then you will realize why Japan is one special place – apart from being one of the lowest crime places the world over, it’s benign weather beckons you to check it out anytime of the year. Numerous temples and castles await you, as well as quirky pastimes only found in Japan, like communal bathing.
The Himeji castle in Japan is a remarkable sight, it’s the only castle in Japan to not have been altered. Himeji castle is also unique because it survived the vagaries of the Second World War. Another outstanding site is the Hiroshima memorial which commemorates the 1945 bombing. It symbolizes peace and also pays tribute to people who lost their lives in this horrific time in history. Totally sobering experience!
