The most beautiful places in Japan

Where to go during your visit

On the other side of the world, Japan has a colourful trip in store for you!

From the northernmost island of Hokkaido to the far south of the East China Sea, discover the most beautiful places to go in Japan. Century-old traditions, magnificent nature and heavenly beaches await you in this archipelago.

HOKKAIDO, BETWEEN URBAN AND ORAL VISITS

Japanese cities always reveal a contrasting beauty between the old and the new. In Hokkaido, Sapporo is the destination of choice when considering where to go in Japan to fully grasp this duality. Your journey will take you to the Hokkaido Jingu Shrine which is in the heart of Maruyama Park. This Shinto temple offers you a spiritual walk in a haven of greenery. Another must-see is the historical museum which is home to traditional houses from all over Hokkaido Island. This visit will take you on a unique journey back in time to the end of the 19th century. History buffs and the curious who travel to Japan to immerse themselves in the history of the country will not be disappointed.

Still on the island of Hokkaido, west of Sapporo, Shikasai-no-Oka gloriously captures the splendour of the Japanese countryside. From April to October, this garden located on the hills of the city of Biei will reveal an incredible array of perfectly manicured flowers like you have never seen before. Fields of lavender, tulips and sunflowers stretch as far as the eye can see and offer one of the most beautiful panoramas of the trip, with Mount Dasetsu as a backdrop. To conclude your countryside visit in Japan, board the Norokko, a small shuttle tractor that will take you on a picturesque ride through this ocean of colours. In winter, the slopes of Shikisai-no-Oka turn into a "Snowland", a kingdom dedicated to sledding and snowmobiling.

KABIRA BAY, A TROPICAL PARADISE

Situated on Ishigaki-Jima, the main island of the southern Yaeyama archipelago, this bay is reputed to be one of the most beautiful places to go in Japan.

Off its white sand, the water reveals gorgeous hues of turquoise and emerald, with the coral reefs just beneath the surface animate with their shadows. Numerous islands covered with greenery complete this idyllic picture of a dream setting for your trip to Japan.

To discover it, hop on a glass-bottomed boat – which is an experience in itself. After reaching the open sea and admiring the mountains that hover over Kabira Bay from afar, enjoy a diving excursion to discover the multicoloured fauna and flora, whose beauty has greatly contributed to the reputation of this must-see place to visit in Japan.

The most beautiful places to go in Japan will take you through grandiose landscapes. From its cosmopolitan cities to its volcanic relief and its heavenly beaches, Japan offers you a trip to discover a natural and cultural heritage that will take you away from the ordinary.

NATURAL STOPOVERS, FROM MOUNT OMOTO TO DAISETSUZAN NATIONAL PARK

Back on earth, Mount Omoto, the highest point of Ishigaki-Jima with its 525 meters of altitude, is one of the most popular places to go in Japan to discover splendid landscape views.

In the heart of the rainforest, you will discover a beautiful waterfall where you can take a moment to refresh yourself before heading back to your destination. A walk down a path lined with bamboos, will open up to a breath-taking view of Kabira Bay.

At 2,000 meters in altitude, Daisetsuzan National Park is the place to go in Japan to enjoy more than 200,000 hectares of pristine and preserved nature.

Another hot tourist hotspot is found in Biei - the man-made blue pond is an unusual discovery: its cyan waters, where larch and birch trees that grew before the formation of the lake still reign supreme. The pond is a result of the construction of a dam on the river to stop possible mudflows in the event of an eruption of Mount Tokachi.
