Think you know Japan? Think again.

A storied history, rich culture, diverse dining and spectacular nature come together in Japan, where there is truly something for everyone.

Venture out of the big cities and immerse yourself in the country’s regional areas for some unexpected experiences. There’s lots there that will surprise you — go from seeing giant snow sculptures in Sapporo to riding a camel in the sand dunes of Tottori; stay at a glamping resort overlooking Mt Fuji or on a luxe floating ryokan on the Seto Inland Sea; experience fine dining in the Northern Japan Alps or sample taco rice by the beach in Okinawa.

We’ve put together a selection of guides, curated for every type of traveller. From refined travel tips and standout seasonal activities to local gems for regional cuisine and after-hours spots to dance (or sing) the night away, your next trip to Japan is sorted.
