TOKYO

One of the most populous cities in the world
Center of economy, culture and industries in the world

Tokyo consists of the southwestern part of the Kanto Region, the Izu Islands, and the Ogasawara islands. The population is one of the largest in the world. It is the Capital of Japan where over 11 million people live. Since Shogun Tokugawa Ieyasu established a government in the early 17th century, the town started to develop, spreading around his resident Edo Castle. Although most of the city was devastated by the Great Earthquake of 1923 and again by the bombing in the WWII, it achieved rapid restoration both times.

 

Kyoto

Kyoto Prefecture, located in the middle of the Main Island of Japan, forms a long shape, extending from the northern coast on the Wakasa Bay, through the Kyoto Basin, up to the southern region bordering on kyoto and Mie Prefectures. The northern coastal area by the Sea of Japan, which includes the Sanin Seaside National Park and the Wakasa Bay Seminational Park, is indeed a rich mine of natural beauties, as Amano Hashidate (sandbar)--one of the scenic trio of Japan--exemplifies. The city of Kyoto lies in the Kyoto Basin, where old-time nature is well preserved, thanks to the characteristics of Kyoto as a "Mecca" of Japan--a country of history and tradition. In addition, the Hiei Mountain, the riverside of Uji, and Kasagi Mountain in the extreme south also preserve the rich nature as it was before.               

 

Hokkaido

Hokkaido is Japan's northernmost island, but Cape Soya situated in the northern extremity of the island is in the lower latitude than Paris, and Sapporo City is in the same latitude as Marseilles in southern France. Hokkaido, which is as large as both of Switzerland and Denmark together, accounts for about 22% of the total land mass. Throughout a year, many people visit the prefecture where remain Mighty Nature. It is cool and comfortable in summer and you can enjoy any kind of winter sports in winter. Hokkaido, where you can find Mother Nature, boasts many sight-seeing places which include the hot-spring resorts of Noboribetsu and the Jozankei gorge in Donan (Southern Hokkaido), Shikotsu-Toya National Park, the Shiretoko Peninsula, the Shakotan Kaigan coast, Daisetsuzan National Park which comprises the backbone of the island, the Daisetsu Mountains, and Kushiro Swamp that rare creatures inhabit.
