There’s something for everyone in Japan, and this is exactly why the island nation located in the Pacific Ocean in East Asia should top your list of places to go sightseeing. Experienced sightseeing guides in Japan exceed tourists’ expectations, taking out-of-towners to the most beautiful temples, traditional gardens, charming tea houses, and stunning waterfalls. No matter what age you are, sightseeing in Japan will both fascinate and surprise you, taking your level of appreciation for the unique country to a whole new level.
To get the best understanding of Japan’s one-of-kind customs, your best bet is to hire a sightseeing guide; not only do these informed individuals take you from highlight to highlight, they act as your translators and tell you everything you need to know about proper etiquette (for example, they’ll kindly inform you that you’re not supposed to pour soya sauce directly over a bowl of rice and that it’s perfectly fine to use your fingers to eat sushi).

Many of Japan’s sightseeing guides are highly educated in art and history, meaning they offer impressive insight into the country’s dynamic past.
From one guide who purports to have tried all the ramen restaurants in Kyoto to another who calls himself the “Last Samurai,” Japan offers an incredible array of sightseeing guides who strive to make your trip that much more memorable.
