When traveling in Tokyo, instead of just going to the classic landmarks inside this metropolitan city, you can also consider nearby attractions, including cities, historic sites, scenic spots, and hot springs. The traffic is much lighter in the Kanto region, and it only takes you 1-2 hours by JR to get to many nearby cities. If you go to Hakone, Kamakura, Yokohama and other nearby cities, there is a traffic ticket package that comes with a discount.
Japan has a great enthusiasm for world heritage. From their first 4 most important world heritage sites at the end of 1993, there have been new projects almost every year. So far, 21 sites have been listed in the world heritage list, including 17 cultural heritage sites and 4 natural heritage sites.

We traveled all around the world by going to Tobu World Square! This attraction has miniatures of landmarks all over the world including the Pyramids of Egypt, the castles of Japan, the Eiffel Tower of Paris, the Forbidden City of Beijing, and many more! It was such a great experience seeing all of these landmarks at least in their miniature form.
This shrine is said to be the final resting place of Tokugawa Ieyasu, who is the founder of the Tokugawa Shogunate. This shrine is already a part of the Nikko UNESCO World Heritage Sites. For me, I am very impressed with how detailed and how high quality the artifacts and the displays in the shrine. The whole place is well-preserved. Ticket is for ¥2100, both for the shrine and the museum.
We time-travelled back to the Edo Period (17th century) of Japan by going to Nikko Edo Mura. It is known in English as Edo Wonderland. It is located in Nikko, Tochigi Prefecture. It is a village referenced from the designs of the villages during Edo Period. People can avail of the Kimono Rentals and all the other shows once a ticket is bought. When we went there, we wore Kimono, rented swords, and took lots of pictures!
Imagine being in the midst of nature: waterfalls, lakes and high marshlands. Here we are, right at the center of the imaginary scenic beauty of Lake Chuzenji area. The lake lies at the foot of Mt. Nantai, where, some 20,000 years ago, used to be an active volcano. Riding on Akechidaira Ropeway to the top of the mountain is how you’ll get a spectacular bird’s-eye view of stunning waterfalls and mountains on a clear sky day. Moreover, this area is close by the Nikko National Park where you can see the marsh in Oku-nikko, registered under the Ramsar Convention intergovernmental wetlands conservation treaty. Let’s explore Nikko’s rich nature! #wintergetaway
