While Japan’s major cities, such as Tokyo and Osaka, have more neighborhoods and places where the LGBTQ community frequents, it is important to understand the country delivers a warm welcome to LGBTQ travelers and there is much to explore beyond the obvious.

One of the 17 autonomous communities of Spain, the Canary Islands are like the European Caribbean. You’ll find good weather year-round, mild temperatures and crystal-clear waters where you can practice a variety of water sports. You’ll find all these things just few hours flight from most major cities in Europe. And if you add the beautiful and exotic volcanic nature and a rich history, it makes the perfect plan for a holiday.

Travel has a remarkable way of uniting people, regardless of background, sexual orientation or gender identity. This becomes even more profound for LGBTQ travelers when they are able to connect with other members of their community while on the road. That’s why LGBTQ festivals and other events have become such a magnet for travel.
