The city's lively nightlife, its exotic gastronomy and its surprising culture stand out, as well as its modern architecture.

Undoubtedly, its 17 temples stand out, in addition to the Imperial Palace, located in the center of the city.
Another city that we want to talk about is Osaka, considered the third largest city in Japan, after Tokyo and Yokohama, which we will talk about later. It is one of the main ports and industrial centers of the country. In recent years it has managed to attract tourism for its rich history, its natural environment and its wonderful climate.
We continue our tour of the most important cities of Japan in Hiroshima, sadly known for the bomb Atomic that the United States launched in 1945. If you have the opportunity to visit this place, you should stroll through the Peace Memorial Park, which houses ruins of buildings and a museum. In addition, it is important to note that some historical sites have been splendidly rebuilt.
Another city that cannot be missing from the list is Nagasaki, which historically has been an important port and center of commerce with foreign countries. What stands out most in this city is the crossbreeding between eastern and western culture, something that can be seen in works of art, crafts, festivals and, of course, historical vestiges.
We also want to tell you about Sapporo, a relatively new city, since its development began in 1869. What is most surprising about this city is that unlike other cities in the country, this one is especially green thanks to its many parks.
Considered the sixth most populous city in Japan, Kobe is also a major international port. It is known for the ox from Kobe, which is highly prized by cooks, and the Pearl trade. In addition, it is important to note that here it is possible to find magnificent natural landscapes despite being a commercial city.
