Japan is an enormously varied and diverse country; the soaring mountains of the Japan Alps couldn’t be further removed from the flat densely populated shores of the eastern seaboard which is home to 80% of Japan’s 126 million people; the volcanic moon-like landscapes of Kyushu Island are a world away from Hokkaido’s lush green rolling hills and open pastures; a land where temperatures vary between -30 degrees in the depths of Hokkaido winter to +40 in the southern islands summer. Each region is unique and will provide you with a never ending list of things to see, experiences to be had and tastes to savour.
