Japan out of ordinary route
Japan is one of the most sought-after tourist destinations. There are many itineraries for 15-20 days that cover major stops such as Tokyo, Kyoto, Nara, Osaka... In this article, I write about the destinations that I liked the most out of the ordinary routes. Historical cities, mountains, sea, good food... a bit of everything.

In my opinion, the best time to visit Japan is in the autumn. And if you go during this season, you can't miss experiencing it.

Traveling alone for 4 days on this small island, spending the days swimming above the coral reef with turtles and eating sea grapes.

I am an architect living in Milan. I was born in the Marche region and have lived in Turin, Japan, and Barcelona. I have been traveling since I was young, and even today, whenever I have the opportunity, I escape for a weekend, or why not, for a few more days. I try to include architectural points of interest in my travels as well. What never misses in my travels are tips from locals, good food, and living life to the fullest. I travel with friends, as a couple, but also by myself!
