Mention “Japan” and Tokyo is most likely one of the first places. Here at the nation’s capital is an amalgamation of food, shopping and experiences from different parts of the country, making it a great destination to check out.
To its south, Yokohama is similarly well known for its Minato Mirai district, bustling Chinatown, Cup Noodles Museum and Sankeien Garden. And to Tokyo’s east lies Chiba, which is rather popular for its outlet shopping, beaches and also frequented for traveling as Narita Airport lies here.
While Japan’s contemporary capital, Tokyo, and bustling cities, Yokohama and Chiba are great fun to visit, the Kanto area has much more to offer. The region also offers natural beauty like Hakone, and attractions like the Great Buddha in Kamakura, onsen towns in Gunma and Kairakuen in Ibaraki with its 3,000 cherry trees that bloom each spring.
