Times Square / New York:

Theaters, movie theaters, restaurants, hotels, etc. are concentrated and dazzling neon lights, people, people, people, and cars. A countdown is held on New Year’s Eve, and this place full of power is crowded on a larger scale.
Statue of Liberty / New York:
A bronze statue built to commemorate the 100th anniversary of the independence of the United States; it is a World Heritage Site as a symbol of freedom. I want to see it up close! Those who say, you need to take a private ferry to the island and there are some tickets. Tickets that can only be purchased on the day are for landing on the island by ferry. In addition, advance reservations are required for tickets that allow you to enter the Statue of Liberty monument and the crown of the Statue of Liberty.
Central Park / New York:
A park that stretches 4km north south and 0.8km east west, which often appears in movies and dramas. With a lawn square and a beautiful lake against the backdrop of Manhattan’s buildings, it is a place of relaxation. The Metropolitan Museum of Art and the American Museum of Natural History are located on the vast site of 3.41 million square meters and are visited by many tourists.
Broadway / New York:
About 50 musicals are performed every night in the world’s largest musical district on Times Square. Many famous works such as “The Lion King” and “The Phantom of the Opera”, which are popular in Japan, are performed, and you can enjoy powerful performances such as singing and dancing.
Empire State Building / New York:
A 443m high, 102-story skyscraper that often appears in various movies set in New York. One of the highlights of New York sightseeing, the observatory is located on the 86th floor, which is 320m above the ground, and the 102nd floor, which is 381m above the ground. The 86th floor is an outdoor observatory, and you can enjoy the night view not through the window.
Fifth Avenue / New York:
A Street called “Avenue” that runs north south in Manhattan, New York. Approximately 12km from Washington Square Park to 142th Street, between 34th and 59th Streets, alongside the Champs Elysees in Paris and Oxford Street in London, is a world-famous luxury-shopping district. Not only luxury brand shops but also casual shops such as UNIQLO, Forever 21, and Abercrombie & Fitch are lined up.

Metropolitan Museum of Art / New York:
It is one of the four largest museums in the world in Central Park and the largest museum in the United States. Areas are divided by era and region, such as medieval to modern Europe, the United States, the Middle East, Asia, and ancient Greece, but they are wide! Of the huge collection of over 3.3 million items, 100,000 items are on display, but it is too much to go around in a day, so it is recommended that you narrow down what you want to see and go around in a planned manner.
Disneyland Park / Los Angeles:
Disney’s amusement park was opened for the first time in the world in 1955 under the slogan of “the happiest place on earth.” Located in Anaheim, about an hour’s drive from Los Angeles, the cute pink castle of “Sleeping Beauty” is a symbol. Compared to Tokyo Disneyland, there is less waiting time, and I am happy that it is easier to conquer the attractions you want to ride.
Santa Monica Pier / Los Angeles:
One of Santa Monica’s most iconic tourist attractions, the oldest surviving pier in Southern California. A small amusement park with roller coasters, a Ferris wheel, and a reprinted wooden merry-go-round, with an aquarium, an arcade, and stalls, restaurants, and souvenir shops. You can also see locals fishing.
Brooklyn Bridge / New York:
Built in 1883, it is the oldest suspension bridge in the United States and is one of Manhattan’s leading tourist attractions. It is also famous as the world’s first suspension bridge using steel wire. The bridge is divided into two layers, the upper layer is exclusively for people and bicycles, and the lower layer is exclusively for automobiles with three lanes on each side. From the Brooklyn side to Manhattan, you will have spectacular views of Manhattan.
