Well-known throughout #Japan as being home to some of the country’s warmest – and most passionate – people, #Hiroshima gets kind of a bum rap in the outside world. Of course, being the first city in the history of mankind to be destroyed by an atomic bomb is quite a grim legacy. But Hiroshima is so much more than that. Quietly and consistently voted as one of the most livable cities in the country, Hiroshima is still an under-appreciated destination spot on a first-timer’s Japan bucket list!
I tested the JR Pass over a period of 14 days using many different types of trains across the country, from the regional slow trains to the blink-and-you’ll-miss-it shinkansen. http://toeuropeandbeyond.com/dos-donts-japan-rail-pass/ #travel #Japan

Located right in the middle of #Tokyo, #Tsukiji is the largest #seafood market in the world, and makes a fantastic (and free) addition to any Tokyo itinerary. However with increasingly unstable relations between the vendors (for whom this is their livelihood) and tourists (for whom it is a fascinating attraction), it is important to know how to “do” Tsukiji properly.
