Nakasendo Walking Tour

The Nakasendo Post Road literally translates as 'the road through the mountains'. It is an ancient post route, dating back to the 7th century, that connects Kyoto with Tokyo via the Central Japanese Alpine mountains. The pictures to the right provide a good depiction of what the walking is like. Through our walking tour do a deep dive into Japanese culture by wandering through the Japanese countryside, staying in traditional Japanese accommodation, eating local cuisine and visiting heritage listed Japanese castles, onsen and museums.
