We are delighted to present our new small-group, guided walking tour ‘Winter Nakasendo Trail’. Our first departure of this tour will be on the 28th of January 2017.
Oku Japan’s 8-day exploration features five days walking on some of the most atmospheric parts of the Nakasendo Trail, enjoying the peace and serenity of the winter landscapes.
The Nakasendo trail linked Kyoto to Tokyo during Japan’s feudal period. It was the ‘road through the mountains’ travelled by feudal lords and their retinues, samurai warriors, merchants, and travellers. Along the route were 69 ‘post towns’, where weary travellers could rest before continuing on the next leg. We spend five days walking on the loveliest parts of the trail enjoying the peace and serenity of the winter landscapes.
Our guests will stay in traditional country inns enjoying exquisite, warming regional cuisine prepared from the freshest ingredients and enjoy the exceptional Japanese hospitality.
And because there is nothing more enchanting than ending a day on snowy trails in a Japanese bath, just imagine the wonder of sitting in an outdoor Rotemburo thermal water pool as snowflakes glide gently through the air around you.
