In Japan there are lists for nearly anything you could think of. Some of the most famous lists are the 100 Famous Mountains, The Three Great Gardens of Japan, and the Three Views of Japan (also the Three Major Night Views of Japan). However, this time around we’ll be focusing on one of the many nature lists, namely the ‘Nihon no Taki, Hyakusen’, or 100 Waterfalls of Japan made by the Ministry of the Environment in 1990. Let’s take a look at some of Japan’s most famous waterfalls!

Explore the real wonders of Tokyo on foot, on a bicycle, or up in the mountains

Tokyo is often thought of as an expensive city to visit, but it deserves to be known as a wonderful destination for budget travellers.

Rather than spending money on lots of train tickets or passes, you can take your time and enjoy a more in-depth travel experience. Let’s take a look at some of the spots from the new Tokyo Outdoors guidebook that you could visit!
