Our walking tours combine the best of Japan's cultural destinations with off-the-beaten-track walking or hiking. Varying from easy to strenuous, but they all offer the visitor a wonderful opportunity to see Japan from a perspective bypassed by most foreigners. From village-to-village walking along the Kiso Valley or hiking the volcanoes of Kyushu, the countryside will unfold before your eyes, affording a truly up-close experience. Walking in Japan is made all the more civilised by the abundance of natural hot springs, and the freshest Japanese food, beautifully prepared by your host.
Fully Tailored Itineraries:
We can also arrange tours to suit your dates or even put together a trip customised to your needs, with or without an element of walking or hiking. Please fill out our enquiry page to discuss your requirements.
