Fun Facts About JAPAN

UNESCO

Kyoto is one of the best preserved cities in Japan and has 17 UNESCO World Heritage sites.

Tokyo Sights

There are over 4000 shrines and temples in Tokyo and over 150 museums.

Mt Fuji

Mount Fuji is perhaps Japan’s biggest attraction and is the country’s highest peak at an impressive 2.3 miles high. It is 3 volcanoes in one and last erupted in 1707.

Noodles

Japan values good manners highly, but when it comes to chowing down on bowlfuls of noodles, there’s only one way to eat: noisily. Slurping is a sign of enjoyment and also cools down the noodles as you eat.
