WHERE to go?

WhereToGo_banner

Japan is made up of thousands of islands divided into 47 prefectures and 9 regions.

There are four main islands: Honshu is the largest and home to the nation’s capital, Hokkaido is to the north, Kyushu to the south and Shikoku the smallest of the four. Further south are the subtropical islands of Okinawa.

So far, I’ve travelled through { 38 } prefectures! Aside from my home prefecture, Tokyo, my favourites are Nagano (nature), Kyoto (traditional Japan), Okinawa (island life), and Nagasaki (Portuguese and Dutch influence). I would recommend all of these in a heartbeat!

Each region offers something different, whether it be snowy mountains, a desert, ancient rainforest, surf, historical shrines and temples, farmhouse villages or cityscapes. There’s so much to discover and so much to enjoy!

If you’re planning a trip and wanting to know what’s on offer in the different parts of the country, or are just generally interested in learning more about Japan, I hope you’ll find this page useful.

So, sit back, relax and enjoy the ride from the top to bottom of Japan.
