  1. Climbing Mount Fuji is at the top of my list, too! If you love horses, you might be interested in seeing yabusame, which is traditional Japanese mounted archery.

      1. I think the demonstrations are at different times during the year depending on where you go to see it. I’ve only seen it myself at Meiji Shrine’s Culture Day festivities in November but this year I’m looking into other demonstrations in the Tokyo area during April and May.
