Japan has become a world leader in research on causes and prediction of earthquakes.

Another common hazard are typhoons that reach Japan from the Pacific.

There is more to Japan than just Tokyo: The northern island of Hokkaido, which will be hosting the Olympic marathon and race walking competitions, is known for its cool summers and stunning wilderness. The soaring mountains of central Japan are packed with trails perfect for summer hikes. From dramatic coastal landscapes to the sapphire waters of Okinawa, each prefecture has something unique to offer for the Tokyo 2020 Olympic and Paralympic Games.

Japan northernmost islands are located on a similar geographical latitude as Milan or Portland, while her southernmost islands are on a similar latitude as the Bahamas as its shown in the detailed map of Japan. More than 50% of the country is mountainous and covered by forests.

The only part of Japan with antipodes over land are the Ryukyu Islands, though the islands off the western coast of Kyūshū are close. The northernmost antipodal island in the Ryukyu Island chain, Nakanoshima, is opposite the Brazilian coast near Capão da Canoa as its mentioned in the detailed map of Japan. The other islands south to the Straights of Okinawa correspond to southern Brazil, with Gaja Island being opposite the outskirts of Santo Antônio da Patrulha, Takarajima with Jua, Amami Ōshima covering the villages of Carasinho and Fazenda Pae João, Ginoza, Okinawa with Palmas, Paraná, the Kerama Islands with Pato Branco, Tonaki Island with São Lourenço do Oeste, and Kume Island corresponding to Palma Sola.

The vast expanse of the Tōhoku region – the northern half of the largest Japanese island, Honshū – is left off most travellers itineraries as you can see in the map of Northern Japan. But it is a rewarding area to visit, not only because of its natural beauty and cultural riches, but because parts of the region are still struggling to boost visitor numbers after the 2011 earthquake and tsunami.

The regions of Japan to the northeast of Tokyo are more sparsely inhabited and less often visited by tourists, either foreign or Japanese. Yet northern Honshu – which is more commonly known as ‘Tohoku’ – and the northernmost island of Hokkaido offer the advantage of unspoiled countryside and friendly down-to-earth villagers still imbued with something of a frontier spirit (see the map of Northern Japan). Much of the Pacific coast of Tohuku was devastated in the 2011 tsunami and will take years to recover.

In the far north, only 25 miles from Hokkaido, the Shimokita Hantō is home to the eerie landscapes of Mount Osore, where the souls of the dead are said to wander, and the intriguing rock formations of Hotokegaura as its mentioned in the map of Northern Japan. Furthest north of all is Aomori, which is a friendly and down-to-earth port city. Visit for its delicious fresh fish, lively waterfront and several excellent museums.

Focused on cities like Tokyo and Osaka, many travelers to Japan never venture past the central part of the country as its mentioned in the map of Southern Japan. Yet many sites of historic interest and natural beauty are situated in the southernmost pair of Japan main island. Although infrequently visited, these two islands of southern Japan offer visitors some of Japan best attractions, as well as regional spins of Japanese cuisine.

Southern Japan encompasses the islands of Shikoku and Kyushu, and Chugoku – the western extremity of Honshu as its shown in the map of Southern Japan. Each is quite different yet all have one element in common: Seto Naikai, or the Inland Sea. All three regions also face the open ocean, and as a result, each area has widely varying climates. The area also extends far to the southwest along the subtropical island chain of Nansai-shoto, which includes Okinawa.

Colloquially, the main tourist draw to Shikoku is its 88-temple pilgrimage trail, which has been attracting the faithful—both Buddhists and ecotourists—for centuries (see the map of Southern Japan). Speaking of the Naruto Bridge, which connects Shikoku to Honshu via Awaji Island, just underneath it is where you will find one of southern Japan most fascination natural phenomena: Naruto Whirlpools. Whether you watch an awa-odori dance performance in Tokushima between trips to the Naruto Whirlpools and Iya Valley, scale ancient castles in Kochi and Matsuyama, or traipse around Takamatsu Ritsurin Garden before heading to Kotohira-gu, you’ll vastly increase your Japan travel street cred by getting to know its premier southern cities.
