Robot Restaurant – Tokyo

If you are fan of over-the top Japan; then The Robot Restaurant Tokyo is a MUST! “Restaurant” is a bit of a misnomer; more like “Sensory Overload Sensation with beer and popcorn”


Reiyukai Shakaden Temple – Tōkyo

One can count the space age the black star temple of Reiyukai Shakaden Temple among the many places in Tokyo that seem straight out of a Science Fiction movie!


Kyomizu Dera – Kyōto

Located up mount Otowain above Kyoto’s Higashiyama Ward, Kyomizu Dera is one of the most impressive structures of ancient Japan (and holds one of the best views in Kyoto!).


Okochi Sanso – Kyoto

Located a 15 minute walk from Tenryūji Temple, on the slopes of Mount Ogura, at the end of the famous Arashiyama Tenryū-ji Bamboo Forest , is hidden this most beautiful place; Okochi Sanso. The former home and garden of the actor Denjirō Ōkōchi (1898–1962) the villa became public after his death in 1962. After all Kyoto’s palaces and temples, one could really feel the personal love that Okochi Sanso put into his own home.
