It’s nice to have a little-known Standard Sightseeing Spots Japan spot, but I still want to go to the “standard sightseeing spots”

that I won’t miss!

I’ve carefully select the standard tourist spots that represent Japan

from the spots with a comprehensive rating of 4.0 or more and 650 reviews of Jalan Tourist Guide!

Here are some recommended spots to visit with your love ones!!

Mount Hakodate

Standard Sightseeing Spots Japan

Overlooking the city surrounded by abundant nature. A must-see for one of the most beautiful night views in Hokkaido

Mt. Hakodate, which is famous as a sightseeing spot in Hakodate, is located at the western end of the city of Hakodate, Hokkaido, and you can see the night view of Hakodate from the observatory. It is a famous night view that you want to visit at least once.

In addition, about 600 species of plants flourish, and it is also famous as a resting place for migratory birds. You can walk up while enjoying the sea, cityscape, and nature seen from Mt. Hakodate throughout the year, and you can reach the summit observatory in about an hour.

It is possible to use the ropeway only for round trips or downhill,

so you can easily walk on the mountain trail.

Hirosaki Castle

Standard Sightseeing Spots Japan

The only existing castle tower in Tohoku. Let’s love the famous castle with the scenery of the four seasons.

Hirosaki Castle is one of the 12 existing castle towers. 

It is designated as a national important cultural property, and this is the only existing castle tower that can be seen in Tohoku. There is a park in front of the castle, which shows the expressions of the four seasons.

Beautiful buildings unique to the castle, such as turrets, gates, bridges, and moats, are scattered around, and there are plenty of photo spots that you will want to take a picture of along with the seasonal scenery.

There are more than 400 Yoshino cherry trees over 100 years old in Hirosaki Park, and it is famous nationwide as a famous place for cherry blossoms. I definitely want to visit in spring.
I also recommend the observatory overlooking Hirosaki Castle and Mt. Iwaki.

Chusonji Konjikido

A treasure trove of Heian Buddhist art, such as the national treasure Konjikido

It is registered as a World Cultural Heritage site, and many Heian Buddhist arts designated as national treasures and important cultural properties, including the Golden Hall, continue to fascinate visitors.

The Golden Hall was built in 1124 (the first year of the Tenji era) by Mr. Fujiwara no Kiyohira, the first prince of Oshu, and is a building that conveys the original appearance of Chusonji Temple.

Matsushima Bay

Standard Sightseeing Spots Japan

A famous place where you can enjoy a superb view from all north, south, east and west. Even if you look at it from the sea on a pleasure boat۔

The terrain is such that the land surrounds the bay, and you can enjoy the view of the bay from any of the north, south, east, and west observatories. In particular, you cannot miss the four observation spots (Otakamori, Tamonzan, Toyama, and Ogiya) called the Matsushima Four Great Views. You can also take a sightseeing boat around the bay and see the strange rocks of various sizes and the scenery of the four seasons.

Kakunodate Bukeyashiki Street

Standard Sightseeing Spots Japan

Take a walk in “Little Kyoto of Michinoku”. Even if you enjoy a town tour date with a rickshaw

Kakunodate, which prospered as a castle town during the Edo period, still retains its vestiges. 

Enjoy a walk while admiring the beautiful scenery of each season, with cherry blossoms in spring, fresh green in summer, colored leaves in autumn, and snowy scenery in winter. 

Ginzan Onsen 

Take a leisurely stroll through the retro cityscape. Enjoy the milky white high quality hot springs

Ginzan Onsen, a hot spring town that represents Yamagata. A Western-style wooden inn built from the Taisho era to the early Showa era creates a nostalgic atmosphere, and the emotional scenery heals the hearts of visitors.

Ginzan Onsen is a colorless and transparent sulfate hot spring that has a high reputation as a famous hot spring in Dewa. There is also a communal bath in the hot spring town, so you can easily enjoy the hot springs even on a day trip.

We also recommend taking a walk from the hot spring town to famous places such as Shiragin Falls, Fudoson Waterfall, Setokoi Bridge, and Ginko Cave.
