A Tour of the Destinations in Japan You Cannot Visit During the Olympics Part 2


TOKYO (NEXSTAR) – Still in quarantine, foreigners visiting Japan for the Tokyo Olympics can’t leave a bubble, which means they can’t see the sights.

This means no trip to Shibuya Crossing, the busiest intersection in the world. Every 30 seconds, some 3,000 people cross at the same time.

“What’s interesting is that we never meet people,” Tokyo tour guide Markito Hirata said. “We are good at it and there is no confusion.”

The area is popular for shopping.

If you are more of the outdoors type, your dream destination might be Mount Fuji, which you can reach by taking a bullet train. Mount Fuji is the highest peak in Japan at over 12,000 feet tall. On a clear day you can see it from Tokyo even though it is 100 km away.

It is an active volcano and one of the three sacred mountains of Japan.

“Mount Fuji is a special place for the Japanese,” Hirata said. “Now this is a place that everyone would love to see and also climb. But it’s still a very spiritual place, not just a place of recreation. So when you see Mount Fuji, even the Japanese, even if you’ve seen it hundreds of times, you still take pictures and you always feel happy when you see the mountain.
