✰ Travel Japan (NEW!)

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.

Japan

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!

Whether 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 knowing 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.
