    The streets and islands of Japan are probably the most peaceful places to land your feet on and walk– however, doing this can be tiring most especially if you have to travel from one island to another.

    Located on the southern side of Honshū, Kobe is popularly known for its Kobe beef. In Japan, chefs would typically cook the namesake beef in front of the customers using a teppanyaki iron grill. As this culture grew in and out of Japan, Japanese producers began raising cattle to easily meet the needs of their overflowing customers.

    Located on the northern part of Japan, Hokkaido is blessed with the beauty seas surrounding the whole area–here, tourists can enjoy the serenity of nature whatever the season may be; the island of Hokkaido represents the four seasons of Japan the best way possible.
