Best Solo Travel Cities in Japan

Planning to travel solo in Japan and not quite sure where to go? Here are our top 5 picks:

  • 1. Tokyo

    Tokyo is the perfect combination of traditional and modern. It is also one of the best solo travel cities in Japan. Visit the ancient temples, shop at the Tsukiji market, eat a wide array of seafood treats, or even take a stroll along the Sumida River. Make time to go to the Imperial Palace, and spend some time in the East Gardens. Visit the Edo Tokyo Museum for amazing exhibits and the opportunity to learn some Japanese history. Other places to visit include Ghibli Museum, Sensoji Temple, Ota Memorial Museum of Art, and Shinjuku Gyoen National Garden.

  • 2. Osaka

    If you love to shop, you will enjoy Osaka. The nightlife and selection of restaurants are also extensive. Visit the floating garden observatory in the landmark 173 meter Umeda Sky building, Osaka Castle, Kamigata Ukiyoe Museum, and Universal Studios. If you have a love for architecture, visit the Osaka Museum of Housing and Living, to see replicas of structures dating back to the 17th century.

  • 3. Kobe

    You must eat the tender, delicious beef and sake in Kobe. Learn about the sake brewing process at the Hakutsuru Sake Brewery Museum and Kiku-Masamune Sake brewing company. The city has an international feel to it, with a lot of Western influence. Learn about ancient tools at Takanaka Carpentry Tools Museum and visit Akashi Kaikyo Bridge, the tallest bridge in Japan. Other places to visit include Oji Zoo, Mount Rokko, and Fruit Flower Park.

  • 4. Kyoto

    Serene, scenic, safe, peaceful, and rich in culture are just some of the ways to describe Kyoto. Get a touch of Japanese culture by watching the geisha performances, and participating in the tea ceremony. Pay homage to the rice god, Inari, at the Fushimi Inari-Taisha Shrine. Visit the Kiyomizu-Dera Temple, a UNESCO World Heritage Site, and home to the god of love. Climb up the Water Tower for an uninterrupted view of the city.

  • 5. Hiroshima

    Despite its sad history, Hiroshima is still worth considering for a visit. Visit the Atomic Bomb Dome and Hiroshima Peace Memorial Park and pay your respects to those lost. The city is a classic lesson in how to build yourself into something bigger and better. Take in the elegance and beauty of places such as Miyajima Island, Shukkei-en Gardens, the Hiroshima Castle, and the Itsukushima Shrine. Also, ensure you try the local cuisine, especially the savory pancake, okonomiyaki.
