TOHOKU

An area still well off the tourist map? Check. Double take when you see another foreigner? Check. Road tripping goodness? Check. Plenty of powder for the active adventurer? Check. Lots of accommodation variety with a strong Japanese theme? Check. Definitely time to check out this undiscovered gem before the hordes wise up.
