Tohoku

Trip Planner Asia  /  Japan  /  Tohoku
(4/5 based on 9,500+ reviews for top 30 attractions)
Things to do: sightseeing, historic sites, nature
Long a poor rural area known for its harsh climate, Tohoku remained off the tourist radar for most of modern Japanese history. Today, tourism in Tohoku remains refreshingly subdued, offering the chance to discover some of the country's finest natural scenery without the crowds. The area encompasses many scenic hot springs, developed ski areas, picturesque lakes, and historic castles and former samurai residences. Tohoku also serves as an ideal spot for that quintessential Japanese activity, the cherry blossom viewing: the trees bloom later here than elsewhere in the country, making the region a great alternative if you arrive a bit late in the season. Use our Japan itinerary builder to plan your trip to Tohoku and other destinations in Japan.
