As one of the most popular tourist destinations in the world, Japan welcomes millions of visitors each year. Here are just five reasons to consider joining the crowds for a visit to the Land of the Rising Sun.

1: The Food

From savory chazuke to exotic wraps of onigiri, you'll find plenty of culinary adventures in Japan. Don't forget to down a few shots of sake and top it all off with the sweet flavor of anpan!

2: The History

If you're a fan of history, Japan will delight you from the tips of Chusonji Temple to the lowest levels of Tokyo's Imperial Palace. Thousands of years are packed into these religious and cultural landmarks, and it's actually impossible to see them all during a single trip.

3: The Company

Japan is famous for its friendliness to foreigners, especially in big cities like Tokyo and Kyoto, where strangers will walk right up to you and ask if you're free for dinner. They don't have any bad intentions; they just want to practice their English on you!

4: The Size

For all its diversity, Japan is a small country, meaning that you can travel from the remote hills of Hokkaido to the gleaming metal of Kagoshima all within a matter of days. It's like having multiple vacation experiences in a single trip!

5: The Fun

More than anything else, Japan is a place where omoide are made. Click here to learn more about the Asian holiday you could be taking right now.

4 Crazy Things To Do In the Galapagos Islands

Visiting the Galapagos Islands is always a thrill, but some activities are more exciting than others. If you'd like to break away from traditional tour groups and really stretch your wings during your holiday, here are four fun, crazy things to do in the Galapagos.

1: Swim With The Sharks

Dive into the waters of Kicker Rock to snorkel like you've never snorkeled before. What makes the area so unique? Well, it's home to a group of hammerhead sharks! The guides promise that they're domesticated enough not to attack swimmers, but you never know.

2: Break A Sweat In The Lava Tunnels

There's a little-known series of caves near Santa Cruz where old volcanic eruptions have formed lava tunnels. It's a beautiful, breathtaking attraction if you're brave enough to try it!

3: Climb A Canopy

You're not afraid of heights, right? Trek to the top of Cerro Azul for an incredible aerial view of the entire island. Then zipline your way back to solid ground!

4: Feed The Sea Lions

All visitors stop by Darwin's famous island, but few are willing to explore beyond the cliffs and into Las Loberias, a beautiful bay where you can play in the water with turtles, trout and sea lions. The lions will even accept food right out of your hand!

These are just a few ways to break free of conventional "tourist" activities and really make the most of your trip to the Galapagos Islands. It's a one-of-a-kind place, so you should give yourself a one-of-a-kind experience!
