Why Adventure Travel in Japan?
Adventure Travel is a way to experience a new country on a deeper level than ordinary travel, providing an opportunity to go beyond the usual tourist sights and discover the local culture and nature through memorable, exciting activities.
With four distinct seasons and diverse natural landscapes, each region of Japan has its own distinctive culture and traditions to explore. Japan is also quite geographically compact, and well-developed transport networks offer easy accessibility to any part of the country. From any of Japan’s major cities, you are just a short flight, train trip, drive or hike away from spectacular scenery and exciting adventures.
