Beyond Tokyo: Discover a New Side of Japan

Many travelers typically pick Tokyo as a ‘base camp’ for their first trip to Japan, and it’s no surprise why. The capital of Japan is a vibrant hub of things to do, from walking across the bustling Shibuya Crossing to visiting Tokyo Skytree, getting lost in the lights of Akihabara, or seeing ancient traditions come to life at one of the many shrines around the city.

While you could spend years exploring Tokyo, there’s an even bigger world waiting for you outside of the capital. From experiencing ancient Japanese traditions in Kyoto to relaxing in an onsen in Kyushu, seeing samurai culture come alive in Kanazawa, or just sunbathing on a beach in Okinawa, there are plenty of things to see and do beyond Tokyo.

Best of all, you can see these places with the help of the JR Pass. The JR Pass can be used on almost all trains on the Japanese Railway network, as well as regional lines like JR Kyushu and JR Hokkaido, among others.
