Welcome to Japan !

The area of Japan is 377,873 square kilometres, nearly equivalent to Germany and Switzerland combined or slightly smaller than California. With total population of 127 million, The Japan is covered by four major islands: Hokkaido, Honshu, Shikoku and Kyushu and surrounded by more than 4,000 smaller islands. Among the vibrant green of the mountains, amidst the fluttering cherry blossom petals, within the transition of the four seasons, people see colours.

Introduction to HAMAMATSU. Hamamatsu is located half way between Tokyo and Osaka and is situated at the center of Japan. The city’s industrial and tourist activities take advantage of this central location. Bordered by the ocean, a river, mountains and a lake, Hamamatsu offers its residents and visitors various seasonal sceneries and leisure activities. Local cuisines exemplified by eel (or “unagi”) dishes and Hamamatsu gyoza (Chinese style dumplings) also attract visitors from around Japan. Hamamatsu is a perfect destination to stop at before or after a visit to Mt. Fuji.
