Why you should look beyond Japan’s big cities and head to the countryside

For most Australians travelling to Japan, Tokyo marks the first stop on the itinerary.

Those with more time will venture towards Kyoto and Osaka, but did you know there's lots to see and discover in northern Japan as well? Japan’s north – specifically the Tohoku region – is teeming with exciting local delicacies, fascinating samurai stories and oases of nature that surround it. So hop on the shinkansen (bullet train) and explore.
