Northern Japan Tours

The Northern part of Japan, also known as the Tohoku region, is made up of six prefectures; Fukushima, Miyagi, Yamagata, Akita, Iwate and Aomori. Tohoku is blessed with an abundance of beautiful natural scenery and has a distinctive culture much different from the rest of Japan.

Other than its majestic scenery, the Tohoku region is also famous for its serene atmosphere, distinctive food culture and cooler climate. Indulge in this area's natural tranquility, learn about the fascinating history Tohoku has to offer, and discover a deeper understanding of Japan's charming culture.

We highly recommend these tours to second and third time visitors to Japan who wish to experience another side of Japan that cannot be seen in the cities.
