We provide itineraries for walking in Japan that allow travellers to this fascinating country to see another side to Japan. Experience quiet forests of cedar and bamboo, mountain views and superb hospitality at traditional accomodation. A Japan walking tour is a superb experience and a great way to explore the rich culture and pleasant hiking that this country has to offer, travelling off the beaten path and seeing the lesser known side to Japan.
Japan is well known for incredible efficiency, ultra modern cities and interesting culture. Walking in rural Japan is a great opportunity to see what else Japan has to offer. Surprisingly quiet away from populated areas, once you are walking through the forests and mountains it is easy to forget you are in such a modern country with some of the worlds biggest metropolitan areas. Our Japan walks have itineraries to suit different levels, whether that be pleasant walking through rural countryside and old postal villages on the Nakasendo Way or the more strenuous walking on sections of the enchanting Shikoku 88 pilgrimage, experiencing ancient temples, onsen baths and traditional cuisine.
