day-by-day itinerary for free
The western portion of the island of Honshu, Chugoku features two distinct seacoasts. The area along the Seto Inland Sea represents one of Japan's most industrialized and urbanized sections, while the coastline lapped by the Sea of Japan remains more rural--as well as less touristy. Both areas offer plenty of vacation ideas in Chugoku, with pilgrimages to see over 30 historic temples among the most popular things to do here. The region also contains Hiroshima, which is not only the site of the infamous atomic bombing, but also a modern urban center with a busy nightlife and a cosmopolitan atmosphere that appeals to foreign tourists. Chugoku is in Japan. Add Chugoku and other Japan destinations to your travel plans using our Japan trip planner .
