All about Japan

To know about Japan tour packages, it is recommended to understand the Goegraphy and culture of the country. Japan is the most eastern island country in Asia. A long chain of islands in the western North Pacific Ocean that runs about 1,500 miles (2,400 km) from northeast to southwest. The four largest islands of Japan—Hokkaido, Honshu, Shikoku, and Kyushu—make up almost all of the country’s land area. Honshu is the largest of these four islands by a long shot. The set is complete with Hokkaido, Kyushu, and Shikoku. The Ryukyu (Nansei) Islands, which include Okinawa, are to the south and west of Kyushu. The Izu, Bonin (Ogasawara), and Volcano (Kazan) islands are to the south and east of central Honshu. The Ryukyu (Nansei) Islands are to the south and west of Kyushu. Tokyo (Tky), which is in the east-central part of the island of Honshu, is the capital of Japan and one of the most populated cities in the world.

Japan has a long and interesting cultural history, but since 1950, it has become one of the most economically and technologically advanced countries in the world. Because it puts a lot of effort into education, Japan has one of the highest literacy rates in the world. In Japan, it seems like the old and the new are always at odds with each other in some way. Japan is known for its love of natural beauty and focus on form and balance, which can be seen in the country’s many gardens and cities like Kyoto and Nara. But even in the countryside, there are many ways in which Japan is influenced by the West. In contrast to the heavily populated, industrialized, and polluted metropolitan area along the Pacific coast of Honshu, the agricultural regions have few people and rice fields and fruit orchards that are neatly arranged.

Japan is a very mountainous country, with mountains covering more than 80% of its land area. Mount Fuji (Fuji-san), the highest point in Japan at 12,388 feet (3,776 meters), is one of many active and dormant volcanoes in the country. Even though the land is hilly and the soil isn’t always good, a wide range of crops can be grown there because it rains a lot and stays warm for most of the year. The main island of Japan, Honshu, has a large population that is mostly hard to tell apart. Most of the people live in the lowlands along the Pacific coast.

Best time to Visit Japan

Spring and Autum is the best time to visit Japan

Both spring (March to May) and autumnal (September to November) are prime times to visit Japan (September to November). At this time of year, Japan comes alive with the contrast of cherry blossoms and brilliant crimson foliage. Keep in mind that this is peak crowding hour.

Visit Mountains during Summer

Only in the Japanese Mountains and the remote national parks of Hokkaido do the summer months from June through August provide optimal weather for hikers and outdoor enthusiasts. Generally speaking, temperatures and humidity levels are high. From from the end of May to about the middle of June or July, we get rainy weather.

Japanese Winters in December to February

The northern part of Japan in the winter is a great place to visit for a unique experience in December to February. It snows, but the locals make the most of the gloomy weather by celebrating all sorts of holidays and other occasions.

Consider the Japanese national holidays as well. The Japanese New Year, or Shogatsu, the Obon holiday which might fall in mid-August or mid-July, depending on the region), and the Golden Week (April 29–May 5) are all occasions when the population swells significantly.

The main shopping sector can be found along Shinsaibashi Street, a short street running parallel to Mid Street.

Most of Osaka’s commercial activity takes place in its central business district.

Kbe is a city and the capital of the Hygo ken (prefecture) in western central Honshu, Japan. The city of Kbe and its surrounding territory make up the western part of the saka-Kbe metropolitan area, which includes the cities of saka and Kyto.

The port of Kbe has long been one of Japan’s most significant, and in the early 1970s its administration was merged with that of saka. Kbe is also the leading city in Japan when it comes to steel production and shipbuilding. Freight and commuter rail lines, as well as Shinkansen bullet trains, crisscross the city. There are expressways that connect Kbe to Osaka, Kyoto, and Nagoya as well.

Nagoya’s role as a commercial hub did not change when the shogunate was abolished during the Meiji Restoration (1868). Heavy industry in Nagoya was boosted by the city’s port, which expanded significantly after World War II because to the city’s strategic location and the city’s access to cheap hydroelectric power from the rivers of central Honshu. As the region’s car, aircraft, and shipbuilding sectors developed, the traditional manufacturing of watches, bicycles, and sewing machines was followed by the production of specific steels, chemicals, oil, and petrochemicals.Amazing Things to do in Nagoya

Hiroshima & Nagasaki

Located in the southwest of Honshu, Hiroshima is the capital of the prefecture of the same name. Located at the entrance of Hiroshima Bay, an inlet off the Inland Sea, it is a major port city. As of the date of the atomic bombing, August 6, 1945, Hiroshima was the first city in the world to be destroyed by one.

Hiroshima is now a focal point for those who advocate for the complete elimination of nuclear weapons. Medical and biological studies on the effects of radiation were initiated in Hiroshima in 1947 by the Atomic Bomb Casualty Commission (now known as the Radiation Effects Research Foundation). The victims of the atomic bombs are treated for free at a variety of state hospitals and private clinics (hibakusha). Although it was completely destroyed in the bombing of Hiroshima in 1945, the castle was rebuilt in 1957 and now serves as a museum dedicated to the city’s past.

Located at the point where the Urakami-gawa (Urakami River) meets Nagasaki-k (Kyushu Bay), Nagasaki is the capital and largest city of Nagasaki ken (prefecture), Japan (Nagasaki Harbour). At the junction of Nomo-saki (Cape Nomo; south) and Nishisonoki-hant, a long, narrow bay is formed that serves as the harbor (Nishisonoki Peninsula; northwest). The city’s winding streets and tiered homes cling to the hillsides that encircle the inner bay give it the appearance of an amphitheater. Some flat areas can be found on reclaimed ground along the bayside and in the Urakami Basin. The city of Nagasaki has been largely reconstructed and modernized after 1945, however there are still a few historic districts where ancient temples and other structures may be seen.

After Tokyo, Nagasaki was Japan’s first overseas commercial port (after Hirado). For the two centuries between 1639 and 1859, the Tokugawa shogunate (military government) blocked all other ports in Japan save for this one. In the middle of the 16th century, Portuguese merchants first came in Japan, bringing with them Roman Catholicism and firearms. Mass conversions to Catholicism occurred rapidly in Japan once the faith was introduced there.

Its early growth was supported by the government’s colonization agency. Its Sea of Japan port of Otaru has developed into an important commercial hub. The production of food items, sawmilling, printing, and publishing are the main economic pillars. As a hub for the country’s rail network, Sapporo’s Chitose Airport serves as the city’s primary airport for flights within Japan. Submarine tunneling began in the 1980s beneath the Tsugaru-kaiky (Tsugaru Strait).
