Did you know that Japan was named 2nd best country in the world earlier this year? According to U.S. News & World Annual Report, Japan is among the world’s most influential cultures, ranking particularly high within the attributes of “prestige,” “modernity,” and “rich history.” We’ve seen how the ever-bustling Tokyo and serene Kyoto are must-visit locations, but Japan doesn’t stop there – the cities of Osaka, Fukuoka, Sapporo and Okinawa are waiting to be discovered and All Nippon Airways (ANA) offers plenty of flights to help get you there.
- Osaka: Located southwest of Kyoto, Osaka is full of modern architecture, street food, and the 16th-century shogunate Osaka Castle
- Fukuoka: Ancient temples meet modern shopping malls and Japan’s top onsen, Beppu hot springs are in Fukuoka, which sits on the northern shores of Japan’s Kyushu Island
- Hokkaido: In the mountainous northern Japanese island of Hokkaido, you can find Sapporo, a city known for its beer, snow sports, and annual Sapporo Snow Festival which happens in February
- Okinawa Island: Travelers wanting to escape the city life and bask in the sun can fly to Okinawa Island to enjoy the broad beaches and coral reefs. History buffs can visit the World War II sites too
With direct flights to Tokyo and beyond from cities such as Los Angeles, New York City, Honolulu, All Nippon Airways (ANA) makes flying to Japan a one-of-a kind experience. Before touching down, passengers experience superb hospitality, unique culinary options, and ultimate comfort. ANA embodies prestige and modernity mentioned above while tapping into the country’s rich heritage, embracing the spirit of omotenashi.
