Another great choice, with a stunning view over Tokyo is a proposal from the 634 meter tall Tokyo Skytree in Sumida. On a clear day Mount Fuji is visible or during the evening the lights of the city illuminate the night. As well as the romantic view, you and your loved one can also enjoy a meal in one of Tokyo Skytree’s restaurants, the most prestigious of which is Sky Restaurant 634.

If you’re looking for something in a slightly more natural setting, then check the dates and head for Jinhae-gu, near Busan, during the cherry blossom season.
