Lesson 37: Exploring Off-the-Beaten-Path Japan; Becky’s Top 10 Japan List

In this week’s episode, I’m bringing you Part 2 of Exploring Off-the-Beaten-Path Japan where I am going to reveal my Top 10 Places in Japan beyond Tokyo, Kyoto, and Osaka. I have personally visited each one of these places over 10 years of living in Japan and can guarantee that they will provide you with unique experiences when you make that dream trip to Japan. 

From the town where John Lennon spent his summers with Yoko Ono (and Bill Gates also has a house) to a place where a monk will take you on a nighttime tour of a cemetery (and then leave you there to find your way out), we are going into the quirky and lesser known Japan in this episode! Join me for Part 2 of Off-the-Beaten Path Japan travel in this solo episode and get even more inspired to visit this incredible country one day soon!
