A small-group guided walking & hiking tour exploring mountains in Tohoku with 6 days of walking and hiking of 2-6 hours per day.

For those who are looking to go off the beaten path and away from the big cities, the Tohoku region offers its visitors the chance to witness a more traditional side of Japan where spirituality and the beauty of nature take center stage. the weather during the autumn season makes it a perfect time to go hiking through the land of the rising sun. With cool breezes, hiking itself will also be breeze. Throughout this tour, you will explore off the beaten path attractions, stay at quaint accommodations, and taste local cuisine and regional specialties. Join All Japan Tours, as we take your through the Tohoku region with an English- speaking guide at your side. Enjoy the stunning scenery and beautiful views throughout your journey.

Start in Tokyo, as you take a walking tour around the city's highlights, including Asakusa Temple and Hamarikyu Garden. On your tour, venture to extraordinary places such as the sacred mountains of Mt. Haguro, Mt. Gassan and Mt. Yudono that make up Dewa Sanzan, as well as renowned national parks such as Nikko National Park and Ozu National Park. We will step into Japan’s cultural history as we visit Nikko’s Toshogu Shrine, one of Japan’s many UNESCO World Heritage sites, and even dive deeper into the Tono Valley countryside to learn a bit about Japanese folklore. While on our journey, we stay in less westernized accommodations such as Yamagoya (mountain lodges), Minshuku (family-run guest houses), Ryokan (traveler’s inns), and even Shukubo (temple lodges) where you can get a taste of the everyday life of a Buddhist monk. You will also make a trip to Nyuto Onsen, a hot spring town famous for its ryokans that have onsen each with their own water source, even some with milky-white water guaranteed to rejuvenate travelers after a long day’s journey.

Activity Level: Strenuous
Our strenuous tours contain several days of trail walking, with some days up to six hours or more of walking. There is significant ascent and/or descent on uneven terrain.

Who is a Strenuous tour designed for?
- We recommend strenuous tours for anyone who does regular full-day walking or hiking, and is comfortable walking for extended periods of time.
- We recommend our strenuous tours for people who are already fit and active.

This itinerary contains overnight stays at Western Hotels, Ryokans, Mountain Lodges, and Shukubo Temple Lodgings. Ryokans are traditional accommodations, with a more casual hospitality than you will find at a hotel. At Ryokans and Mountain Lodges, you will stay in a simply furnished room and sleep on a futon, which is laid on a tatami mat. Mountain Lodges are usually even more simple than a Ryokan. A Shukubo is a lodging at a Buddhist temple, and, similar to a Ryokan, rooms are simply laid with futon bedding.
Some Ryokans may have private bathrooms attached to your room, but others only have public bathrooms used by all the guests. At a Mountain Lodge and Shukubo, however, there are only public bathrooms – meaning either a smaller bathroom used one guest at a time, or larger bathrooms separated by gender (male & female), and designed to be used by multiple guests at once.
