Also, thanks to the efficient traffic transportation system, you can easily go around and visit many places even outside of Tokyo. If you wish to experience many things while you are in Japan, Tokyo could be the best place to make it come true.



Osaka is the third largest metropolitan area that represents the Kansai region. Even though it is only a short shinkansen ride from Tokyo Station, Osaka has a different atmosphere in many ways. Sometimes, Osaka is called “the city of comedy” as there are plenty of manzai, entertaining and comical people. Manzai is one of the famous traditional Japanese cultures that has been loved by Japanese as well as tourists for many years. Lots of popular Japanese foods originate from Osaka including Takoyaki, Okonomiyaki and Kushikatsu. If your wish is to be in a big city with a strong connection to Japanese culture, Osaka will be a perfect place.



Yamanashi is a prefecture of Japan located in the Chubu region. It is in proximity of 5 prefectures including Tokyo to the east. Yamanashi is home to the famous highest mountain in Japan, Mt.Fuji, located on the border with Shizuoka prefecture. Yamanashi is popular among hikers hoping to see a significant view of Mt.Fuji. Summer hiking season in July and August attracts thousands of overnight hikers. Thanks to the area’s volcanic activity, natural hot springs are also found in abundance. Even if you are not a big fan of hiking, you will enjoy Yamanashi for its rich nature while having a great connection to Tokyo.

Other regions


Although Japan’s area can be taken as small, there are various other regions and cities that have their own characteristics. You will find it easy to get around Japan since there are developed public transportation systems such as buses, trains, Shinkansen, ferries, airplanes and so on. It will be a great choice to be in a local place that is unpopular among tourists as you may find different lesser-known Japanese cultures while having connections to the more popular places.
