Japan - The Japan Alps & Central Honshu (Chapter)
This is the Japan Alps & Central Honshū chapter from Lonely Planet’s Japan guidebook.
Japan’s heartland in both geography and outlook, Central Honshū (‘Honshū Chūbu’) stretches out between the sprawling leviathans of Greater Tokyo and Kansai. The awesome Japan Alps rise sharply near the border of Gifu and Nagano prefectures before rolling north to the dramatic Sea of Japan coast. World-class skiing, hiking and onsen can be found in the region’s photogenic alpine uplands.
