- Hiroshima – Yes, you have read it right; the infamous place during the World War II bombing in 1945. The remains, specifically the Prefectural Industrial Hall, are now known as the Bomb Dome in Hiroshima. It was designed by Jan Letzel in the 1960’s. He was a Czech architect and was thanked for the creation of the structure as it was the only edifice that remained after the tragic event. Indeed, what happened during the World War II will be greatly remembered by the survivors and greatly reminisced by those who lost their loved ones.
- Matsumoto Castle – Nicknamed as the Crow Castle, Matsumoto Castle was first constructed in 1504 and despite the tragedies that happened in Japan, and it still survived. It was called Crow Castle because its structures are very similar to the outstretched wings of a bird. It also faced several demolition schedules proposed by numerous land developers, but was immediately stopped due to the locals’ actions. Today, the castle is considered as one of Japan’s finest treasures especially after its very recent restoration.
- Tokyo – Who does not want to stay in Japan’s capital city and site of its numerous pop events? Though it is one of the most populous cities in the globe, Tokyo still tickles the bones of many travelers because it spells adventure, night life, lights, and of course, fun, especially for those who love night life.
