Japan becomes a mecca for skiers and snowboarders in the winter—especially to the winter sports hubs of Niseko and Hakuba —with many coming to take advantage of the country's perfect powder.

Head to the Inland Sea area for cycling routes with fantastic views—including a ride across a 70km bridge connecting Hiroshima with the island of Shikoku. Alternatively, fly down to the subtropical islands of Okinawa where you can jump into a kayak and explore the mangroves in Yanbaru National Park, or head to the beach for snorkeling and diving in the crystal-clear waters.
