Adventure Travel To Japan

Uncover The Natural Beauty Of Japan

While the bustling city of Tokyo may be the first thing that comes to mind when thinking of Japan travel, there are many active adventures and places to visit in Japan outside the fast-paced metropolis.

The prefecture of Kagoshima, located on the southern island of Kyushu, is known for its natural beauty and hot springs. Sakurajima, an active volcano across Kagoshima Bay, makes the perfect backdrop for adventure travel in the region and the waterfront offers a choice of marine activities, including sailing, swimming, and fishing. Keep in mind that visit to the hot springs in Kagoshima tops the list for many people planning a Japan trip to Kagoshima.

The northern island of Hokkaido offers all the makings for an adventure trip, especially around the beautiful Lake Onuma. While the fall foliage draws a lot of attention, the area can be explored year-round by an assortment of active adventures, including zip-lining, canoeing and snowshoeing.

As the largest of the four main islands of Japan, Honshu is home to many of the nation’s largest cities, including Tokyo, Osaka, and Kyoto, but it also offers opportunities for adventure travel. From golfing at Fuji Kogen Golf Course in Shizuoka in the shadow of Mount Fuji to taking an urban cycling tour around Tokyo, you’ll find plenty of places to visit in Japan on your adventure trip to Honshu.

If you seek warm weather, travel to the southernmost Japanese islands of Okinawa, Ishigaki, and Iriomote to experience Japan tourism with a tropical twist. Active adventures, like surfing, scuba diving, and kayaking, can be found in the subtropical waters that are home to clear waters and coral reefs.

With so many different places to visit in Japan, the hardest part of planning a Japan trip is simply narrowing it to what suits you best. Browse these travel videos to uncover the active adventures that will best fit your ideal Japan travel itinerary.
