The Nakasendo Trail was one of two routes that connected Kyoto to Tokyo during Japan’s feudal era. While the other route, Tokaido route, spanned the Pacific coast, the Nakasendo Trail was the ‘road through the mountains’ and was traveled by feudal lords, samurai, merchants, and travelers. Along the route were 69 ‘post towns’ where tired travelers would rest before continuing onto their travels. All Japan Tours will take you to the highlights along this historical trail, providing valuable insight into each town and attraction.

Our journey on this tour will begin in Tokyo, also known as Edo during Japan’s period of rule by the Shoguns. Enjoy exploring this marvelous city, visiitng Japan Bridge and the Meiji Shrine. We will then spend four days walking along the Nakasendo Trail. During the day, we will walk through the ancient route as it passes through beautifully-preserved villages along an easy path, while during the evening we will stay in traditional country inns. Enjoy delectable regional cuisine prepared from the freshest ingredients, soak in natural hot springs, and enjoy the warm hospitality of our hosts. You will be able to relax and unwind in the refreshing hot spring water after a long day of hiking trails and sightseeing! Visit the sacred Mt. Koya for insight into a Buddhist Monk's lifestyle, enjoying morning meditation and an overnight stay at a temple. For those looking to explore a few popular places while also exploring roads less traveled by, this tour is a perfect option.
