A short small-group guided walking tour with three hikes of 3-6 hours of village-to-village walking on the Nakasendo Trail.

The Nakasendo Trail served as a key route in feudal Japan's roads, which connected Kyoto and Edo, known as Tokyo today. Merchants and travelers would spend multiple days along the Nakasendo, staying in small post towns overnight or even to rest during the day. Many of these post towns have been well preserved, allowing you to experience the history and culture of past Japan.

The Nakasendo Trail served as a key route in feudal Japan's roads, which connected Kyoto and Edo, known as Tokyo today. Merchants and travelers would spend multiple days along the Nakasendo, staying in small post towns overnight or even to rest during the day. Many of these post towns have been well preserved, allowing you to experience the history and culture of past Japan. On this tour, we will explore parts of the Nakasendo Trail, traveling through the Kiso Valley. Enjoy nature, temples and shrines, and quaint villages as we trek through a piece of Japanese history. Join All Japan Tours and your English- speaking guide, as we travel and hike from village-to- village along forested trails, resting overnight at family- run inns, and enjoying local cuisine and hospitality.

We will start our 8-day guided Nakasendo tour in Kyoto, where the trail begins. Enjoy sightseeing around the ancient city during a guided half-day tour. During our time in Kyoto, we will enjoy day trips to the nearby cities of Nara and Kurama. In each city, we will hike through small villages, enjoy the rural landscape, and take in the amazing scenery. Our journey then takes us on the bullet train to Kiso Valley, where we will start in the post town of Magome. Travel through well-preserved post towns of Tsumago and Narai by walking along the ancient route as travelers did long ago. Along the path, we will enjoy stunning forests, small shrines, and will stay at small country inns. From Narai, travel to Matsumoto, home to Matsumoto Castle, one of twelve original castles in Japan. Enjoy a night in Matsumoto before heading to Tokyo, where our tour will officially end.

Activity Level: Intense
Our Intense tours generally have dedicated days of trail walking, with some days of over four hours and with some ascent and/or descent.

Who is an Intense tour designed for?
- We recommend our Intense tours for anyone who does regular walking or hiking, and is comfortable walking a full day with some climbing and descending.
- If you do not exercise regularly, please practice walking for three to four hours, about three to six months prior to the tour in order to get the most out of your trip.
