Central Honshu Mountains

The Central Honshu Mountains have the Japan Alps to thank for their outstanding beauty. These mighty peaks dominate the landscape and provide the perfect terrain for outdoor pursuits, including Japan’s favourite hobby – onsen. Located in the middle of Japan’s largest island, the area is easily accessed via Nagoya, Japan’s fourth largest city, which is worth a day of urban wandering in itself.

The maze of trails which traverse the Japan Alps lead you through 3,000 metre peaks to exclusive onsens and traditional towns like Takayama, where you can sip a sake and shop for local crafts. Nikko also has multiple reasons to visit, whether you want to walk in the shadow of ancient Japanese cedar, or see the ornate carvings of Toshogu Mausoleum. After a look around historic Kanazawa Castle, discover the rugged coast, or head inland to well-preserved villages. Central Honshu provides a feast of experiences to compliment any Japanese journey.
