Fushimi Inari-taisha Shrine Fushimi
Beautiful! my favorite temple! the colors and the view is all amazing!! is definitely a MUST if you go to Japan.
The hike is stellar, the views brilliant, the atmosphere serene, and the shrine that you hit every now and then just adds to the profoundly calming, yet exhilarating nature of the whole thing.

Kiyomizu-dera Temple Higashiyama
The temple itself is awe inspiring and the main platform offers some great views of Kyoto and the surrounding area There's also an incredible cemetery that sits alongside the temple worth exploring.
The temple area is quite large, initially you have a great observation area where you can see all of Kyoto, at night the place is illuminated, and the view of Kyoto is great as you can see the glow of Kyoto Tower.

Kinkakuji Temple Kyoto
One of the most incredible sights in Kyoto with gorgeous water features (Pavilion Pond, Carp Rock), beautiful gardens, an awesome Tea House and of course The Golden Pavilion with its three styles of architecture.
... - the serene lake with temple reflecting beautifully on the surface surrounded by a zen garden, perfectly manicured trees and grounds, koi fish swimming to and fro, tea in a forest, and Buddhist site for prayer.

Amazing experience going to see the Atomic Bomb Dome, it is truly incredible and very humbling to see such an important historic site.

Mimamishima Ogasawara-mura
Taikoiwa Yakushima-cho
After a couple hours of hiking through the thick Genserin Shiratani rainforest, it is both magical and surreal to finally emerge from all the foliage to behold such a view.
One of the highlight of the Shiratani Unsuikyo Trekking, make sure to go up to this peak/rock/Taikoiwa for an amazing view of the world below.
Todai-ji Temple Nara
It was lovely.. enjoyed walking through all the deer to get to the great buddha hall and gardens.. nice complex, cute deer , nice shopping and great sights, what more could you want.
This giant Buddha is Japan's largest and is really a sight to see! Make sure to see the Buddha from all angles, especially the side view as you can really appreciate the massive size by getting a little closer to it.

Hiroshima Peace Memorial Park Naka
The Atomic Bomb Dome, the flame, the memorial plaques in different languages to commemorate the importance of this site in our contemporary History.

Shoshazan Engyoji Himeji
We enjoyed our walk past so many sites (and sights) from the temples, to giant trees, to ponds, to burial memorials, to moss gardens - so many details.
Once on the top there is a 20 min walk on a steep large path to get to The Temples with a nice view of the hills and city or you can take the bus which will take you there .The structures are large and well crafted.

Sanjusangendo Temple Higashiyama
A hall of a thousand bigger than life statues a definite site to see, amazingly preserved and intricately beautiful statues.
This UNESCO heritage site is one of special interest if you can be there the Sunday (in mid January) when they commemorate the traditional archery contest through the one long back hallway, dating back centuries.

Ise Shrine (Ise Jingu) Ise
Naiku jingu its a magical place with an amazing energy and a peaceful vibe if you like a good walk with amazing view then you must go.
Crossing the bridge shortly after dawn and soaking in the utter serenity of the Shrine is something truly special, and the reverence with which locals treat the site only adds to the charm.
Mount Fuji Chubu
Got to see three sites and enjoy a scenic cruise on the immaculate Lake Ashi, and then took in stunning sights while soaring on the Hakone Komagatake Ropeway before returning to Tokyo by bullet train.
Walk around the crater is the highlight of the trail, it's a very easy hike and the views are breathtaking.

Ritsurin Garden Takamatsu
Even in summer when the garden is mostly a palette of greens, textures, and shapes, it is well worth visiting for its superb design and great views.
The composition of landscape, lakes, bridges, tea houses, view points, the Sakura at spring and the autumn colors are all perfect.

Mt. Kiro Observatory Park Imabari
The views of Imabari, the Seto Inland Sea and Kurushima-Kaiyo Bridge were breathtakingly spectacular and the delicious ice-cream and drink at the kiosk a much deserved treat!

Katsura Imperial Villa Nisikyo
Our group of 35 followed a guide on a circuit along paths and a stone-paved walk that brought us to various elevations for different views of the scenery, made even prettier by trees with leaves of red and gold.
The gardens are absolutely amazing...AMAZING.......spectacular..and so very soothing to the Spirit of the frenzied tourist whose plate overflows with must-see sights.
Chureito Pagoda Fujiyoshida
It's a journey of 398 steps up to reach the top, once you arrive at the shrine entrance, but absolutely worth the extra exercise to see such an unobstructed and stunning view of Japan's most iconic peak.
Fuji itself was (still) partly covered in clouds, but the views from the shrine surroundings, the stairs to the top and from behind the pagoda were still breathtaking, also thanks to the dozens of cherry trees in...

Otagi Nenbutsu-ji Temple Kyoto
I discovered Otagi while researching sites for a private tour of Kyoto and saw pictures of the charming stone statues, each face being unique, some happy, some sad, others contemplative.
It is far from all the hustles of the other tourist sights in Arashiyama however you can visit Adashino Nenbutsuji and Saga Toriimoto Preserved Street during your visit.
