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.

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.

This apartment was perfect for the two of us. It is in an ideal location. You can literally walk across the street from the airport bus stop. There's a mall next door if you need to buy anything, and the restaurant/retail labyrinth around Ikebukuro station is 2 blocks away. If you want to be a hermit, just walk downstairs to the convenience store and get your dinner there. If you walk East, toward Shin-Otsuka, you can find quirky little neighborhoods that seem like the opposite of the high-rise stores around Ikebukuro. Kim was an kind and responsive host. The information she sent was incredibly detailed and helpful for fist-time visitors to Japan. You can find somewhat cheaper apartments in Tokyo, but the combination of value, location, and quality are pretty unbeatable.
