Step Out into the Wonder of Nature in Japan’s Vast National Parks

Surrounded by the sea and covered by forested mountains and hills, Japan is a nature lover's paradise. For such a small archipelago, the country offers a boundless array of diverse ecosystems, and its national parks are the gateway to discovering a wide range of unique natural sights. This month, we take you on an adventure through some spectacular national parks, from the majestic Japan Alps down to the cultural treasures of the San’in and San’yo regions, then further south to the rugged beauty of Okinawa. Whether you are looking for breathtaking mountain views, a close-up experience with flora, fauna and marine life, or just want to cool off under a waterfall, we present some unforgettable locations to inspire you for your next trip!
