Ling’s Comprehensive List of Official Japan Tourism Websites

I was searching for specific prefecture information while planning a future trip. As I bookmarked the sites, it occurred to me there would be others who might search for the same information. My bookmarks are only known to me. I thought, why not share the list where it would be easier for all to access. They could shorten their search time and don’t have to go through what I did.

Thus, began my search for and effort to document a comprehensive list of 47 Prefectures Official Japan Tourism Websites. I only kept the list to official Japan tourism websites; they are likely to provide comprehensive information about the location they are promoting and not be selling reader tours. I did included a couple of non-official websites that I thought were good.

I hope this comprehensive list of official Japan tourism websites would assist to ease your Japan trip planning research. Bookmark this post for easy reference and don’t forget to check Ling’s Japan Travel Tips too!

Please refer to this link for the map of Japan’s 8 regions and 47 prefectures if you’re not sure where they are located.


List will be updated as and when I’m aware of new sites. If you know of any other official Japan Tourism sites not listed here, do let me know.
