Having lived in Tokyo for the past 3 years and being a photographer, here are a few very photogenic spots in Tokyo I would highly recommend.
Mt. Eboshi was one of the most beautiful and also easiest hikes I have ever done. I would recommend it to anyone who loves the outdoors. With amazing scenery and extraordinary foliage as an added bonus, this was an autumn experience one could only get in Japan.
West of the road were a series of lakes, ponds, marshes and wetlands between you and the sea. To the east was the Iwaki River, farm villages and the southern end of the Tsugaru Mountains, the northernmost mountains of the Ou chain.
Takeda Castle is now one of the top 100 famous castles in Japan due to its stone walls and spectacular views, despite being in ruins. It is possible to witness a sea of clouds surrounding the castle, making it appear as a castle floating in the sky, commonly referred to as “Castle in the Sky” or “The Machu Picchu of Japan”.
Suganuma is really a perfect place to escape from the humdrum of the city. More from the personal account of our Writer, Anissa who tasted grilled mochi, with the breath of fresh air from the mountains, and watched the picturesque beauty of snow covered houses.
If you and your significant other are travelling together in Japan around February 14th, you're already well on your way to having a unique Valentine's Day. The Nunobiki Herb Garden would be more suited for those looking for a low-key, quietly intimate day.
