Although travelling to Japan may not be possible at the moment, there’s plenty of Japanese Netflix to help bring Japan to you anywhere in the world. To really rev up the anticipation, the Japan National Tourism Organisation (JNTO) has released a new promotional video highlighting the beauty of Japan’s 47 prefectures, following up on the popular ‘Hope Lights The Way’ video.

For a few seconds each, we get to visit all the prefectures in Japan and see their most famous attractions and activities, such as thrilling water adventures in Wakayama, colourful flowers at Hitachi Seaside Park in Ibaraki, and the famous sand dunes in Tottori.

The video also shows iconic spots that are on everybody's Japan wishlist, such as Fushimi Inari Shrine in Kyoto and, of course, a classic view of Mt Fuji from both Shizuoka and Yamanashi.

The most important question of all: which landmark was featured for Tokyo? In this video, the ever-popular Tokyo Skytree was on display with a sweeping aerial view across the Sumida River. If you're familiar with Tokyo buildings you might also recognise Ryogoku Kokugikan, the capital's renowned sumo stadium.

Watch the video now on JNTO’s YouTube page, and then click here to discover the most beautiful places in Japan.
