It’s a bird, it’s a plane, no it’s ANA! As Travel Agents, we are often referred to as Superheroes for the amazing work that we do.

Imagine being able to give your customers the super-power of flight by booking them on the ANA network to explore Japan.

With over 121 domestic routes, they are in competition with the likes of Superman to give your customers the best undiscovered gems of Japan via the power of flight.

Encourage your customers to look beyond the realm of the usual cities via the forces of Instagram #travelgoalz.

Find some inspiration from these top 7 Japan Instagram photo spots:


1. Naoshima (โœˆ๏ธ: Takamatsu

With a population of only 3,000 this beautiful island is accessible via boat from Takamatsu (Shikoku) and contains some of the worlds most unique contemporary installation art.

To experience a view like this doesnโ€™t take 100 angles, it relies heavily on the zen space blending two of the most beautiful images we rely on from Japan โ€“ nature and architecture.


2. Shiretokoย (โœˆ๏ธ: Nemuronakashibetsu)

With a short flight intoย Nemuronakashibetsuย (Hokkaido), take your customers out to Shiretoko to experience the incredible picturesque landscape of Japan.

Expect to experience all four seasons in this part of the world with winter being the most spectacular, showing off the iconic Shiretoko Ice Floe but you can also expect the overcast, warm days like the picture above.

Know you know that there is more to Hokkaido than the incredible cheese tart (still get one of those anyway!). #japansnaps #hokkaidowinter #instatravel

Hot Springs were discovered right here in Kinosaki in around the 8th century and since then, this quaint little town in the Hyogo prefecture of Osaka has made it one of the top onsen destinations in the Kansai region.

What is an Onsen you might ask and why would I want to send my customer there?

Quite frankly, it is one of the most traditional and authentic Japanese experiences you can have on top of the Robot Restaurant in Tokyo (bucket list item)!

Even the most reserved guests have loved the relaxation and rejuvenation that the hot springs give them, so take them right to the motherland of Kinosaki to experience some of the best in the world.


4. Nabegataki Falls (โœˆ๏ธ: Kumamoto)

Can you feel the relaxation from where you are sitting?

This heavenly part of the world is what Instagram was made for, being dubbed a mini-Niagara falls with the ability for travellers to venture behind the falls and experience the local carvings made over the years by locals.

Add a little blur to the falls, sharpen those tree branches and adjust your contrast to make your Instagram the envy of all others.

Did we mention how easy it is to get here? Ask ANA โ€“ theyโ€™ll tell you!



5. Adachi Museumย (โœˆ๏ธ: Yonago)

Opened in Yasugi, Shimane Prefecture, Japan in 1970, the Adachi Museum of Art houses a collection of modern Japanese art. From here, you can view the award-winning garden that will give all your senses a treat and all the best photo shots along the way.


6. Kanazawaย (โœˆ๏ธ: Komatsu)

Sometimes referred to as “little Kyoto”, wander around the quiet streets and gardens scattered with quaint traditional teahouses here and there. Perfect little spots to take snaps with little or no filters.


7. Mt Fuji from the Sky (โœˆ๏ธ: ANA)

For those customers who may not be able to take the hours of hiking or just love the simplicity of a beautiful view,ย book them the window seat from Tokyo (heading West).

The ANA websiteย has an uber cool feature where you pop in your destination and it will show you what you can see outside the plane window on your flight.ย  This means you can decide which window seat to pick depending on the shot you want to take.

Talk about a game changer!

Capturing that perfect shot of the famous Mount Fuji from a birds-eye angle is pretty #instacool.
