TFT Lifestyle TV’s Dan on the Go found his way to Japan and gives a glimpse of what to expect from the Far East as he documents his travel with Fujifilm’s Instax.

Here are the tourist spots you shouldn’t miss:

Mt. Fuji

Mt. Fuji is the tallest mountain in Japan towering to 12,389.2 ft. A staple tourist site for many first-time visitors, Mt. Fuji is famous for its snow white peaks which is an awesome sight to behold for both tourists and residents alike.

Hakone

If you’re planning to capture a lovely view of the sunset in Japan, Hakone’s elevated, mountainous areas will show you one of your most memorable sunset views. Hakone is located at the Kanagawa Prefecture within the district of Ashigarashimo.

Izu, Granpal Park

During the evening, visitors will be mystified as Izu, Granpal Park lights up in full colour with their festive lights and their lively light show.

Sushiro

Foodies will delight at the authentic taste of Japan’s finest sushi at Sushiro restaurant in Japan. With over 30 years of making Sushi and other Japanese delicacies, diners can enjoy over 80 varieties of dishes from 100yen onwards.

Ichiran

Located in the heart of Shinjuku is Ichiran, known as the go-to place for one of Tokyo’s best tasting Ramen. With the taste of meats infused within the very soup base, the ramen serving is indeed one of those experiences that will excite your palates.
