The Kanto Region of Japan
Anchored by Tokyo, the world's biggest metropolis, Kanto also has rustic mountain getaways and gorgeous subtropical islands.
Megacity Tokyo fully engages the senses with its mix of modern bustle and traditional tranquility. But before jetting off to Kyoto or further afield, allow yourself to discover Kanto's hot spring resorts, unspoiled mountain gorges, pristine beaches, UNESCO World Heritage sites and cultural treasures. The diverse port city of Yokohama and the immersive nature of Gunma, Saitama, and Ibaraki are right on Tokyo's doorstep. The volcanic Ogasawara Islands offer a subtropical getaway with endemic wildlife and clear water. Kanto's culinary options are as varied as the landscape—restaurants serving cuisine from every corner of the globe abound at every price point.
