If you’re interested in exploring outside of Japan’s major cities, there are plenty of hidden gems to discover. From picturesque mountain towns like Takayama and Shirakawago to the scenic beauty of Japan’s national parks, there is no shortage of natural wonders to explore. I also love to recommend day trips from Tokyo and other major cities, where you can get a taste of rural life and experience Japan’s beautiful countryside.
