Islands of Japan

Introduction

From snowy Hokkaido to tropical Okinawa, the archipelago of Japan consists of over 4,000 islands. Stretching along the Pacific coast of East Asia, the four main islands are Hokkaido, Honshu, Shikoku and Kyushu. Thousands of smaller islands surround these four larger ones. From famous and well-traveled destinations to hidden gems, Japan is perfect for island enthusiasts. Visitors will find mountains covered with lush nature, turquoise waves along sandy beaches and meadows filled with furry friends. Some islands have been inhabited for hundreds of years, holding must-see sights and cultural treasures. Others have a younger history and are full of adventures -- ready to be explored.
