About a week ago, I posted about the "Top Ten Favorite Sightseeing Spots For Foreign Tourists In Japan." The source was from TripAdvisor thorough Japanese Info.
Now, we have "30 Most Popular Japan Sightseeing Spots For Foreigners," as posted by Tsunagu Japan. Again, their source was...(drumroll): TripAdvisor.
Like the previous list, I've been to several of them.
Tsunagu Japan begins their post with:
One of the most daunting things about any international trip is deciding where to go once you get to that country. If you’re coming to Japan, you’re probably flying into Tokyo, staying here for a bit, and then taking advantage of your JR Rail Pass to travel the country.

TripAdvisor has saved you some time poring through guidebooks and watching NHK specials to bring you 30 of the most popular sightseeing spots in Japan as voted by foreign tourists just like yourselves (2014 June). Here is a run-down of the list, from #30 to #1, with a brief description and reviews.To see the list, go here.
