Visit Japan’s Seto Art Islands

Japan‘s Seto Inland Sea is a placid stretch of water cushioned between three of Japan’s main islands — Honshu, Kyushu, and Shikoku — populated by a hazy, pine-cloaked archipelago of some 3,000 islands. Twelve of these, known collectively as the “art islands,” are home to contemporary artworks and exhibits that have become an integral part of the islands’ scenery. They’re found scattered along sandy shores, in the abandoned buildings of ancient villages, and hidden along trails in the dense co...

Most itineraries are focused around the major cities of Tokyo, Kyoto, Hiroshima, and Osaka, and while those cities definitely deserve all the praise and attention they receive, with 47 prefectures that are divided into eight separate regions, Japan has way more to offer.

Best things to do in Oregon

The great food scene of Portland, rivaling those in San Francisco and New York, is one of the reasons more than 30 million tourists visited the city and its area in 2018. But the vast majority of those visitors never reach the state’s high country and vast coastal expanse — and it’s quite a shame. Oregon is stunningly beautiful, a landscape of rocky coast and the towering Cascade Mountains. Outside Portland, the state is rich in cultural and historic attractions, as well as beautiful natural ...

Want to stay fit on the road?

Losing weight and getting fit are consistently among the most common New Year’s resolutions, but they’re also the most commonly broken. It’s tough, after all, to maintain a healthy routine when work, family, and social lives are the priority and never mind traveling, which is notorious for thwarting people’s workout regimens. Traveling is not innately conducive to fitness, per se, but there are realistic ways to work exercise into an itinerary, such as picking Airbnbs with good fitness facili...
