Large roads connect the major cities like Tokyo, Kyoto and Osaka, making it a country well suited to road-tripping travellers as well as those looking to base themselves in one spot. Take in the Zen gardens and teahouses of Kyoto, ultramodern culture and restaurants of Tokyo, mountainous idyll of Takayama and the lakes of Hakone, which lie in the shadow of Mount Fuji.
