It's easy to get buried when researching your adventures in Japan. That's why it's important to find and use resources that get you to the detail you're after as easy and quickly as possible.

It's an interactive map of Japan (on the Japan Airlines website) that lets you filter your searching by island and region.

Zoom in as close as you like to see the matching number of points of interest - shrines, bars, restaurants, hotels, temples, gardens - you name it!

Single out your destination of choice and just click on it to be taken to an article about the place or look at a photo gallery, get the contact details, make your reservation, plan your itinerary.
