Japan: Fun And Surprising Things To Do In Japan

Japan is a country that has the best of both worlds. The Japanese people have managed to keep their culture but make giant leaps into science and technology. Just take a look at some of their largest companies: Sony, Nintendo, Toyota, And Honda. Then take a look at their society with pretty much intact culture and colorful history.

Younger Japanese children are much much more appreciative and respectful to their elders, which includes their parents. Something that many countries like Europe and America have lost. Don’t worry, you don’t need Translation Services since some signs have an English translation, and most Japanese now speaks English.

So if you are going to Japan for business or just for fun, take a look around. Walk the streets and see the real Japan. Consider trying to find online Japanese classes so that you can converse with locals while exploring.

Japan is infamous for Sumo wrestling. The popular sport has been a tradition for years and years. Dating back all the way to the beginning of Japan. Most major cities will have fights going on, and the tickets aren’t too expensive. Unlike America, you can enjoy this sport without having to shell out a ton of cash for food, beverages, or tickets.

Note: Children might not like the arenas. They are built very close, and there is a lot of shouting and taunting.
