North of Tokyo lies many hidden treasures beyond the popular ski fields.
Often overlooked for the more familiar golden triangle of Tokyo, Kyoto and Osaka, travelling north from Tokyo to Sapporo will reveal many natural and man-made treasures just waiting to be discovered.
Explore the natural treasures of North Honshu such as the caldera created Lake Towoda and Oirase Stream, Towada-Hachimantai National Park, Genbikei Gorge and Matsushima Bay – for centuries considered one of Japan’s three most scenic views. Relish the full Japanese cultural experience of staying in an onsen in Hanamaki and try a variety of hands-on crafts to bring home as mementos. Discover the breadth of Japanese history from old postal towns with Samurai warlords, mansions and Endo Castles to ancient Jomon archaeological sites and thousands of years old temples, which rival those of Kyoto. Whether your fancy is tasting chocolate or famous Japanese beer, steak or seafood, this itinerary has it all either as a first-time traveller or return visitor to the wonder that is Japan.
