A Quick Getaway
From TOKYO

Time for a New Adventure!

In recent years, Japan has put in much effort in the development and renewal of its regional transportation infrastructure.
With the improved infrastructure, you now have even greater accessibility to various parts of Japan, so you can surely discover a different side of Japan when you move out from its megacities.
By adding just a couple more days to your Tokyo itinerary, you can explore the rich history and culture, breath-taking nature, and oishi gastronomy of rural and traditional Japan on a short tour or day-trip to one of the neighbouring prefectures or regions.
Take this chance to discover the side of Japan you have not seen before!
