Japan with Jonathan DeHart

Enjoy our live Monday Night Travel party with this video recorded on June 26, 2023.

Few places offer as wide a range of experiences in such a compact swath of terrain as Japan's cultural and geographic heart, stretching roughly from Tokyo to Hiroshima. Together with guidebook author Jonathan DeHart, we'll discover high-octane cities, medieval towns, shimmering seascapes, and mouthwatering cuisine. Beyond the most popular stops — Tokyo, Kyoto, Osaka, Nara, and Hiroshima — we'll also visit Himeji's soaring white castle, navigate the sparkling Inland Sea, sleep in a Buddhist monk's quarters, and submerge ourselves to the shoulders in the steamy waters of a remote onsen bath.
