Kyoto is often recognized as the cultural and historical heartland and also the most beautiful city in Japan. It is next to Nara prefecture and is only about 2.5 hours by fastest shinkansen from Tokyo. Because Kyoto served as Japan’s capital and the emperor’s residence a long time ago, you will see countless temples, shrines and traditional gardens that still remain. Strict regulations are made for the city to maintain its historical scenery: for example, roof tiles are to be silver-colored, and heights of buildings are to be shorter than 45 meters. Kyoto allows you to be surrounded by beautiful architecture and experience all that historical Japanese culture.



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.
