The lack of street-level windows and the use of clay walls also lends to the feeling of intimacy and grace.

The Kingdom of Morocco has become very popular among female Japanese travelers

The travel show "Sekai Itte Mitara Honto wa Konna Toko Datta" ("If You See the World This is What You Really Get"; Fuji TV, Mon., 10:30 p.m.) attempts to reveal what a tourist destination is really like, as opposed to the image most people have of it.

The other visits the country's largest city, Casablanca, which is also the largest port in North Africa. From there they travel east into the Sahara.
