I left Tokyo on June 29th 2015, about a month ago. Already. Inside the plane, I was feeling completely lost: how my journey could be better than this incredible week in the Land of the Rising Sun?
As I’m about to say goodbye to Japan,
I wanna put here some memories of people and all the little things that made me love Japan with all my heart!
Here’s my TOP 5 of my favourite (cheap) Japanese accommodations!
Besides the Shinto shrines, Japan also counts numerous Buddhist temples. Both religions can even appear as complementary in the daily Japanese life. Japanese Buddhist temples are called tera or jiin.
The Shinto shrines, also called Jinja in Japanese are shrines for Shintoism religion, the oldest Japanese religion.
Which consist into the celebration of divinities called kami, which are more spirits than actual gods. They are mostly elements of landscape or forces of nature.
A Ryokan is a type of traditional japanese inn, with traditional japanese meals, yukata and futons.
A Onsen Ryoken is pretty much the same thing, except that you have access to some natural hot springs as well.
It’s like a night in heaven.
