Make A Holiday Rental House in Japan, Asia Your Home Away From Home

Straddling the Pacific Ocean, close to the country of North Korea is the wonderful island nation of Japan. If you are looking for a destination that is filled to the brim with things to see and do, then a Japan holiday is the perfect choice. A Japan holiday rental house is the ideal base from which to explore this interesting, historic and culturally rich country.

Places to Visit on Holiday in Japan, Asia

If you decide to venture out from your comfortable Japan holiday rental house then you will find there are many great places to visit. This includes the famous city of Hiroshima, most noted in modern times as the place where the Americans dropped an atomic bomb during the Second World War.

As well as beautiful sculptures and monuments, the park contains the Hiroshima Peace Memorial Museum which explains all about the bombing to visitors in the city.

Another great attraction not to be missed is Hiroshima Castle. The present-day castle is an exact replica of the original 16th century which was unfortunately destroyed by the atom bomb.

5 of 5
Really nice apartment in a quiet area while still within walking distance to 3 train stations. It was really nice to have the natural light in the bedroom and living room, the air con/heating was really quiet, and the apartment had a nice cosy feel. The mobile wifi was a lifesaver! And the free coffee pods for the provided coffee machine were really appreciated (thanks!). Kevin was also a wonderful and friendly host giving us suggestions during our stay about some great things to do that he'd seen that day. Highly recommended, thanks Kevin!

5 of 5
This is a cozy 2 bedroom apartment with 3 double beds and a sofa in a residential neighborhood 10-15 mins walk to Shibuya 109. The apartment is pretty roomy but bathroom is small and a bit tight. A portable wifi was also provided which is a plus. It is located near the subway, market, convenient mart, McDonalds and a 24-hr Ramen joint. Even though I didn't get to meet Bruce, he was nice enough to email me to ensure things are going well. I took Bruce's recommendation for shuttle service provided by Mohinder from the airport to the apartment as well as several other excursions. Mohinder was great and his fees are very reasonable. Thank you all for the wonderful stay!
