The city's historical ambience is a big draw, as well as its restaurants, shops and taverns. Some of the city's main attractions can be visited for free.

Travel News: BOJ keeps upbeat view on regional Japan, sees limited tax hike impact

Bank of Japan Governor Kuroda casts his shadow on a wall as he drinks a cup of water during a news conference at the BOJ headquarters in TokyoBy Leika Kihara TOKYO (Reuters) - The Bank of Japan maintained its upbeat view on most of the country's regional economies, adding to reassurances from its governor that the world's third-largest economy can ride out the pain from a sales tax hike without additional stimulus.
