Why Japan has left-hand traffic

This question is, of course, burning. It becomes especially relevant when, after a short stay in Japan, you suddenly find yourself thinking that you can’t part with the Japanese in any way out of the blue – you’re constantly confronted.

In fact – a lot more! If you leave the bustling city blocks, you will see a multicolored variety of outlandish natural landscapes, perfectly preserved ancient imperial palaces, a scattering of artificial lakes with black swans, well-groomed orchards. Today we will tell and advise what to see in Japan, what sights you must visit and where in fact the first creation of Walt Disney is located outside the United States.
