If you love to experience the great outdoors on your travels while soaking up the history and culture of new destinations, then our Nakasendo & Kamikochi Trekking Tour is for you. We walk a section of the historically important Nakasendo Route, which is one of five main “highway” routes that connected regional areas of Japan to the capital during the Edo period. The Nakasendo, however, was a popular route for samurai, pilgrims, merchants and also the daughters of nobles destined to marry in the capital, so was also known as the hime-kaido or “Princess Road.” You’ll stay in 300-year-old traditional inns, learn about the amazing history from locals and our expert guides, rejuvenate in the onsen baths each night and delight in locally grown produce that is transformed into mouth-watering Japanese cuisine.
