Top Five places to take unforgettable social media photos in Japan

Japan loves travel and photography, and so it’s only natural that the country’s social media accounts are filled with gorgeous snapshots of breathtaking views and beautiful sightseeing attractions. Of course, with cool things hiding around seemingly every corner in the country, budding shutterbugs can be spoiled for choices in Japan, and so online research group Snaplace has put together a list of recommendations of photogenic places that are sure to impress.

Let’s dive into its top picks, based on analysis of data from 2018.

5. Yorotenmei Hant

4. Sanko Inari Shrine (Inuyama, Aichi Prefecture)

you’ll find that Sanko Inari’s ema (wish tablets) aren’t the standard bare wood pentagons seen at most other shrines, but pretty-in-pink hearts, making this a favorite pilgrimage spot for those looking for love.

3. Sarushima (Yokosuka, Kanagawa Prefecture)

Let’s get the bad news out of the way first: even though Sarushima translates to “Monkey Island,” there are, sadly, no monkeys to be found there. What there is, though, is a gorgeous greenery and hauntingly beautiful architecture left over from when Sarushima was a military base.

2.Kanazawa 21st Century Museum of Contemporary Art (Kanazawa, Ishikawa Prefecture)

The crown jewel of Kanazawa’s modern-day art scene, the museum famously has no designated main entrance, so that visitors will roam free and create their own personal experience (though everyone seems to love the unique installation that makes it look like you’re waking through a filled swimming pool).

1. La Collina Omihachiman (Omihachiman, Shiga Prefecture)
Quite possibly the world’s most dynamic-looking bakery, La Collina is situated in a vast patch of farmland, with a narrow walkway visitors traverse to get to the front door. Even the roof is covered with plant life, making the building itself change color with the passing of the seasons.
