Northern Honshu

Rugged and remote, Northern Honshu offers Japan’s lesser trodden path. The mountains and patchwork rice fields are often missed by travellers, which only adds to their beauty. Hiking and skiing are popular pastimes here, and the area plays host to the colourful and captivating Namahage Festival, which we recommend as a unique addition to your trip.

Mountains are the backbone to Northern Honshu province, providing a dramatic backdrop for walking in an area which is liberally sprinkled with flora and fauna. Towada National Park is home to the deep blue crater lake of Towada-Ko, while Matsushima Bay is a sanctuary for pine trees; cruise along the wild coastline. Culture is also bountiful with old military sites and quirky local folklore, such as the trolls which inhabit Tono’s rivers. Lying north of Tokyo, this unexplored region allows access to Japan’s hidden side.
