  No doubt about the most recognizable place in Japan, the majestic Fuji-San (Mt. Fuji) is also the country's highest peak, 3,776 meters above a largely flat landscape in the south and the east, and high enough to see from Tokyo more than 100 away from the tree. Mt. Fuji for centuries has been honored in art and literature and is now regarded as a very important symbol that UNESCO has recognized its world cultural significance in the year 2013.  

Part of the Fuji-Hakone-Izu National Park, Mount Fuji is climbed by over a million people every summer as an act of pilgrimage, which culminates in watching the sunrise from its top. Although some people still choose to start climbing from the base, the majority of the climbers now start on the half-way, at Station 5, which leads to an increase of six hours or more manageable. Of course, for many people, just looking at the mountain remotely, or from the comfort of a super-speed train, is enough to say "already there, did that".

  Hiroshima's Peace Memorial Park (記念, Heiwa Kinen Kōen) is one of the city's most prominent highlights. Even visitors not looking for, it will probably stumble on the park over 120,000 square meters. Trees, grass rugs and walking paths are completely opposed to the surrounding downtown area.  

Prior to the bombing, the area of the present-day Peace Park was the political and commercial center of the city. For this reason, it was chosen as the target of the pilot. Four years to the day after the bomb was dropped, it was decided that the area would not be redeveloped but instead was reserved for peace Memorial buses.  

The park's main base is the peaceful Memorial Museum. Includes two buildings, Hiroshima's historic survey museum and the birth of the nuclear bomb. Although its main focus is on the events of Aug. 6: Dropping bombs and its aftermath in the human suffering. The personal details are displayed quite unpleasant and serve to remind us that we should not be peace.
