People come to Japan to see the cherry blossoms in spring, ski in the Japanese Alps in winter, bathe in the hot springs, climb the famous Mount Fuji, and to experience the unique culture of Japan with many beautiful temples and shrines, such as the Kiyomizu-dera Temple in Kyoto and the Todai-ji Temple in Nara, and some of the best food that you will find anywhere in the world.
When it comes to food, Japan is best known for sushi. But there is much more to Japanese cuisine than sushi. Some other popular Japanese dishes include tempura (fried vegetables or seafood), teriyaki (grilled meat or vegetables in a sweet sauce), ramen, Japanese curries, Katsudon, and miso soup (a soup made with miso, a fermented soybean paste).
