With many of us having extra time on our hands at present, internet window shopping can be very appealing.

There are so many great places that we can introduce to you in Japan and none better than Minakami.

Located just 66 minutes from Tokyo, Minakami is fast becoming known as the outdoor adventure capital of Japan.

With every season offering challenging and rewarding thrills like skiing, rafting, paragliding, cycling, canyoning and many other activities, it’s really a place to get your heart pumping.

If the thrill seeking activities don’t float your boat or you need some down time afterwards, why not take time to soak and unwind in one of the town’s many onsens, or enjoy making arts and crafts in the friendly village of Takumi-no-Sato.

A great place to visit when travel resumes to Japan – watch on Japan Holidays You Tube.
