There’s no better way to truly appreciate the rich history and stunning scenery of Japan than by foot. This trip is for the rambling wanderers who wish to escape to the rural parts of this beautiful country – walking through the wilderness and sleeping in traditional accommodation.
Away from the skyscrapers, robots and 24-hour karaoke bars is a calmer Japan, where age-old temples and monasteries still operate as they did a thousand years ago. Family-run ryokan (traditional inns) still welcome guests with humble graciousness and a home-cooked dinner, exactly as it was before Western tourists arrived. Utilising the futuristic wonders of the country’s reliable railways, enjoy quieter locales, and savour the warmth of Japanese hospitality every step of the way. Alongside the famous major cities you will get many opportunities to stretch your legs as you hike in the hinterlands of Japan.
