I came to Japan to see it all. Did I? No, not at all. But there are some things I am very happy to have seen. This week’s question is from S. R. Carrillo. She asked many questions, didn’t she?
Where all have you traveled?
Surprisingly, I haven’t traveled very much in Japan. I live in Kanagawa, which is just south of Tokyo. I’ve also been to Tokyo, of course. The other prefectures I’ve been to are Saitama, Chiba, Yamanashi, and Shizuoka.
In Kanagawa, I’ve lived in Yokohama, Kamakura, and now Fujisawa. I’ve also visited Odawara, Yokosuka, Kawasaki, Sagamihara, Isehara, Chigasaki, Hiratsuka, Zushi, Hayama, Miura, Oiso, and Yamato. I think the highlights are Kamakura (many temples and shrines), Odawara (castle pictured above), Fujisawa (with Enoshima), and Yokohama (technically the largest city in Japan).
In Tokyo, I’ve been mainly around the main city area, but I’ve also been to Machida and Hachioji (Mt. Takao).
In Saitama, I’ve been to Saitama, Warabi, Tokorozawa (for a baseball game), and Kawagoe (a city with many old buildings).
In Chiba, I’ve been mainly to Narita Airport.
In Yamanashi, I’ve been to Mt. Fuji.
In Shizuoka, I’ve also been to Mt. Fuji, but also Atami and the Izu Peninsula, which is famous for resorts and hot springs.
Out of all the places, I think my favourites would have to be Kamakura, Tokyo, Yokohama, and Mt. Fuji.
