With its unique mixture of natural majesty and manmade marvels, Japan is one of the most photogenic countries on the planet. Following are top 6 best places to photograph in the capital of the eastern world.
1. Mount Fuji
The highest mountain in Japan which was long deemed a symbol of Japan’s natural fairness. It reaches the highest level of beauty in winter when the snow-clad mountain and the surrounded pink cherry blossoms blend together magically.
2. Himeji Castle
It’s also called “the White Heron Castle” as the shape of the castle bear an alluring resemblance of a heron spreading wings.
3. The Floating Gate of Itsukushima Shrine
The famous shrine was built over the bay so that it would appear as if it was floating on its reflection on the shimmering sea. It was designed genuinely to look like a Japanese alphabet letter elevating from the tidal water. It’s almost submerged at high tidal waves; that’s when you can take the most picturesque photograph of the torii gate.
4. Kinkaku-ji Temple – “the Golden Pavilion”
That gracefully designed temple is virtually breathtaking. With its golden leafs and its charming reflection in the water of Kyokochi, it will undoubtedly make the best snapshot you could ever take in the eastern world.
5. Shibuya Crossing in Tokyo
The crowded junction in the middle of Tokyo where pedestrians start rushing from all sides in the minute the lights turn red. While viewing it from the window of any of Shibuya’s buildings, don’t forget to take a photo of that unique moment of chaotic order.
6. Hiroshima Peace Memorial
A memorial site built to honor the victims of the atomic bomb that was dropped in Hiroshima on August 6. 1945. Even though a snapshot of that tribute would be rather tough, but it’s a genuine touching reminder of what wars have caused, and causing, on that planet and of the sacredness of human lives.
