Japan Kyoto to Tokyo Walking
This enchanting journey through Japan combines stunning vigorous walks with timeless tradition. Beginning in the old imperial city of Kyoto and ending in modern Tokyo, our itinerary follows the Nakasendo, a network of ancient trade routes once used to travel from Kyoto via the provincial towns of the Kiso Valley to Tokyo. By way of temples, shrines, and hamlets, you'll take in ethereal landscapes of lush gardens, misty forests and possibly the bloom of cherry blossoms. Along the way, enjoy generous Japanese hospitality in a shukubo (temple lodging) and family-run inns, and the contrasts between old and new in this magical land.
  • Explore Kyoto's ancient temples, UNESCO-listed Kinkaku-ji and Ryoan-ji, and the bamboo forest of Arashiyama
  • Journey to Nara's Todai-ji, scenic and sacred Mount Koya, and electric Tokyo
  • Follow shoguns' shadows along ancient trade routes through medieval towns, lush valleys, and misty forests
