Visit Chugoku with a Local Guide

The less-traveled Chugoku Chugoku (中国地方) region is the westernmost part of the main Japanese island Honshu.

Chugoku is heavily industrialized along its Pacific Coast but much more rural in its mountainous interior and along the Sea of Japan Coast.

Aside from Hiroshima, most of Chugoku is full of bucolic beauty probably well off the beaten track for a brief visit to Japan; but if time permits, you’ll find a region full of memorable sights and experiences, and a side of Japan that’s completely unlike the better-known destinations in Kansai and Kanto.

You’ll discover idyllic seaside towns and island-hopping opportunities on the Seto Inland Sea, with onward paths to Kyushu and Shikoku.

Wander inland on the road less traveled, and your efforts will be rewarded with divine natural landscapes and the excitement of discovery like in Shimane and Tottori.

We like

Ushi-zumo or bull sumo in Oki Momo Dome, Shimane.
