Tohoku Region Vacation Packages

The Tohoku region consists of the six northernmost prefectures on the Japanese island of Honshu: Akita, Aomori, Fukushima, Iwate, Miyagi, and Yamagata. Just a three or four-hour shinkansen ride from Tokyo, Tohoku is a great place to explore the Japanese countryside. Rolling farmland and rice paddies make way for lakes and mountains, where there are traditional towns and villages with well-known hot springs and ryokans. Tohoku is a treat particularly in early spring, during cherry blossom season, and in autumn, when it boasts Japan`s finest foliage blooms.
