Welcome to Around Japan!
The purpose of aroundjapan.net is to enhance your travel experience in Japan, making it become something more than just a journey.
We would like to help you create your special adventure, by introducing niche spots and unknown gems besides the beaten path.
We strive on focusing on less known places, or even the most hardly reachable ones, by gathering information, pictures and travel tips by visiting them by ourselves, in order to give you detailed information and frank travel impressions.
Of course, on aroundjapan.net you will find tips and information on the more classical attractions and tourist destinations, with the opportunity of discovering surprising “bonus tracks” around the area you want to know more, with less crowd and tourists.
We hope to be a good travel partner for you and help you to get the most from your discovery along the Japanese Islands.
Let the journey start!
Hi to everyone!
Recently we have been improving and expanding the single sections about the regions of Japan, available under the prefecture map in Explore! section.
You can now explore more in details about how to reach Okinawa, and when to go, or get more information about the seasonal events in Hokkaido!

As some of you may have experienced, earlier this week a copious snowfall hit Tokyo and the surround areas, causing several disruptions and problems to people commuting (including us).
Today I was off, so I had a walk to the Omiya Hikawa Shrine in Saitama (30 minutes north from Tokyo). The contrast between the white of the snow and the vermilion red of the portal was beautiful!
