The heart of Japan, between Kanto and Kansai regions
Chubu is a central region of the main island of Honshu, dressed up by the Japanese Alps, with Mt Fuji as the dominant landscape. Made of nine prefectures, its biggest cities are Niigata and Nagano in the North, Nagoya in the South and Kanazawa on the North-Western coast.
Barely known as a whole, we can find in Chubu some golden visits, more or less accessible, which can constitute excellent itineraries' stopovers, between the essential and classical cities of Japan.
Mt Fuji 🗻 plays as a gravitational point of Chubu’s visits, by being the heart of their landscapes.
