Places to Visit in Japan
When people think of Japan, they picture the huge skyscrapers of Tokyo or the old geisha district of Kyoto, but there is so much more to see. We recommend at least 10 days in the country to ensure some time to get outside of the bigger well-known cities and see a more authentic side of Japan.
With a high-speed rail system that is as comfortable as it is efficient, travel across Japan is relatively easy once you know how. Hakone National Park area is renowned for its volcanic activity and modern art installations. Kanazawa is world famous for its beautiful gardens, fascinating samurai scene, and gold leaf district- try it on ice cream! Hiroshima is incredible and moving to see, as despite its horrific past, it’s now one of the most lively and bustling cities in Japan. Nearby is Miyajima Island with the picturesque floating Torii gate and thousands of wild deer roaming the island. There’s also a ski scene to the north and tropical islands to the south making Japan one of the most diverse and fascinating places to visit. Our specialists are eager to help you create a holiday filled with the best places to go in Japan.
