Japan is a chain of islands. Japan’s five main islands, from north to south, are Hokkaido, Honshu, Shikoku, and Kyushu. The Ryukyu Islands, which include Okinawa, are a chain to the south of Kyushu.
Together, the islands form the Japanese archipelago. It has 47 prefectures which are in turn geographically divided into eight regions:

Tohoku is one of Japan’s most scenic regions. Known for its mountains and great skiing spots, lakes, hot springs, castles and samurai residences.
