Situated at the northern tip of Honshu, Japan’s biggest island, Tohoku is a region known for its cold winters and heavy snow.
Counter the cold by soaking in a soothing onsen while gazing out to the Pacific Ocean, cozy up in the Azuma Highlands, or head to the picturesque Ginzan Onsen hot spring town. Apart from onsens, the scenic countryside with majestic mountains and lakes is a common sight in the region. Enjoy the rustic beauty of spots such as Lake Tazawa which is astounding in autumn.
