Beaches And Islands Of Japan Vacation Packages


Many people think of four major islands when they think of Japan, but as one of the largest island countries in the world, there are hundreds of inhabited islands that offer some of Asia`s most fabulous beaches. Beaches and islands can be found off the coasts of every major island, from Hokkaido down to the Ryukyu island chain, which includes Okinawa and Miyakojima, perhaps the two most popular beach destinations in Japan.

Beaches and Islands to Explore

Major Islands of Japan

  • Honshu

    Honshu is the largest of the four main Japanese islands, where over 100 million people live. Historic castles and temples, traditional districts with geishas, skyscrapers and neon lights, relaxing hot springs, and nature scenes are all experiences you can enjoy while on Honshu.

  • Hokkaido

    Hokkaido is one of Japan`s best-kept secrets. The northernmost of Japan`s four major islands, it is very sparsely-populated and geographically diverse. The most agricultural part of Japan, Hokkaido is considered `Japan`s breadbasket`.

  • Kyushu

    Kyushu is the westernmost of Japan`s four major islands, and is well-known for its outdoor vacation experiences and gorgeous landscapes. One of Japan`s geothermal hot spots, Kyushu is dotted by a number of hot springs and even more volcanoes.

  • Shikoku

    Shikoku is the smallest of the four main Japanese islands, separated from Honshu by the Inland Sea. It is perhaps best-known to tourists for its 88-temple Buddhist pilgrimage route, which runs for 895 miles adjacent to Shikoku`s coastline.

  • Okinawa and South West Islands

    The islands of the Ryukyu Archipelago, like Okinawa, Miyakojima, and the Yaeyama Islands, are known for their rich history and culture; beautiful beaches and cliffsides; outdoor activities like kayaking and ziplining; and an all-around laid-back atmosphere.
