The Nakasendo Trail once linked Kyoto to Tokyo during Japan’s feudal era.
The Nakasendo was the ‘road through the mountains’ (as opposed to the Tokaido route which travelled the Pacific coast)and was used by feudal lords , samurai, merchants, and travelers.
Along the route were 69 ‘post towns’, where travelers could rest before continuing on the next leg.
Japan Holiday’s Nakasendo journey will start in Tokyo, known as Edo during Japan’s period of rule by the Shoguns.
Four days will be enjoyed walking leisurely along the Nakasendo. By day ,the walk passes through beautifully-preserved villages along an easy path, and by evening traditional country inns will open their doors, allowing the group to enjoy exquisite regional cuisine prepared from the freshest ingredients, soak in natural hot springs, and enjoy the warm hospitality.
