New walking tours from Walk Japan allow you to immerse yourself in the country’s culture and communities on a deeper level as you travel from interest point to interest point on foot.
For example, the Salt Road tour follows a trade route from Matsumoto to the Sea of Japan over nine days, taking you through the rural countryside. A gastronomy tour takes you through Central Honshu as you explore the area’s rustic cuisine. Another gastronomy-focused tour takes you from the Onsen hot spring capital of Japan and through northern Kyushu as you explore local agriculture. The Tokaido Wayfarer tour contrasts historic with modern-day Japan as you follow an ancient thoroughfare that connects Kyoto to Tokyo.
Tours are available for a range of activity levels and interests, and are a mix of guided and self-guided experiences.
“Following ancient trails and trade routes to charming historic towns, indulging in soothing Onsen hot springs and sumptuous cuisine, these new itineraries are finely crafted by Walk Japan’s experienced team ensuring every tour is an authentic experience offering deep insights into Japan’s society, history, culture and traditions,” described Paul Christie, CEO, Walk Japan.
The new tours start at $1,200 per person and experiences range in length from five to 10 days.
