Japan's Geography

Situated on Asia’s easternmost edge, the country of Japan consists of 6,852 islands and is home to a population of 126.5 million people. Here, ancient cultures and traditions intertwine with cutting-edge technology and modern wonders in a way that is unlike any other nation on Earth.

From the instagrammable delights of Tokyo’s many themed pop-up cafes to the ancient cobblestones that still mark the historic pilgrimage routes of the Kumano Kodo, there’s no shortage of the amazing, unforgettable experiences that Japan offers to satisfy every possible taste.



While Heartland JAPAN specialises in off-the-beaten-track adventures to the unseen treasures of rural Japan, we strongly believe that every inch of the country is worth exploring. In fact, it can be difficult to decide exactly where to visit during your time in Japan, so if you’re looking for inspiration, take a look at our series of ‘destinations’ pages to learn more about the country’s different regions and islands, and find out what can be enjoyed there.
