Where to go in Honshu

List of regions

Tokyo & Surrounds

You needn't travel far from Tokyo's neon-hazed streets to escape the world's ultimate metropolis and uncover a softer side to Japan.

Hakone (Mt Fuji)

Hakone is well loved for two attractions in particular - the iconic view of sacred, symmetrical Mount Fuji seen across Lake Ashi, and its high concentration of bubbling onsen (hot springs).

Kyoto

As the capital of Japan for more than a thousand years, Kyoto is filled with a wealth of cultural treasures - among them 17 UNESCO World Heritage Sites, 1,600 Buddhist temples and 400 Shinto shrines.

Japan Alps

Forested mountains and steaming onsen (hot springs) extend across much of central Honshu, a landscape that is particularly captivating in autumn when the koyo (colourful leaves) turn to shades of russet and gold.

Mount Koya

The religious significance of Mount Koya stretches back to the 9th century when a monastic retreat was established on the mountain for the Shingon sect of Japanese Buddhism.

Nara

Magnificent temples and works of art are among the cultural treasures to be seen in Nara, a compact city that was the nation's capital before Kyoto came into the ascendancy in the 8th century.

Okayama

A chance to visit Koraku-en, one of the Three Great Gardens of Japan, is what brings most people to the capital of Okayama Prefecture.

Hiroshima

Hiroshima, western Honshu's largest city, needs little introduction, synonymous as it is with the atomic bomb that was dropped on the city in August 1945.

Miyajima Island

The tiny but captivating Miyajima Island in the Inland Sea, near Hiroshima, is home to the much-photographed shrine of Itsukushima, whose imposing vermillion entrance gate - or torii - seems to float in the water at high tide and is considered to be one of the country's most memorable views.
