  13. Wow, this really is another side of Japan. Certainly, I am more than familiar with the country’s main hotspots but some of these are great alternatives. The Alpine Route in particular looks wonderfully unique and the Gassho-Style architecture is a farcry from the hyper-modern neon of the big cities. Great post!

    Love how modern developments and ancient heritage is coexisting so well.
    The gold leaf production interests me and so does the museums.
