Japan Walking Tours 2020 & 2021
Journey To The East's 2020 walking tours of Japan are ideal for those who enjoy light, pack free, walks (up to about 8-10 kilometres per walk). In groups of up to 8, you walk with a private guide through the back streets and through some of Japan's spectacular pristine nature. The small groups enable you to interact directly with your knowledgeable guides to get the most from your walks.
Each of the 2020 Japan Walking Tours is unique, in a few words
- Walking in the Japan Alps takes in the fabulous Mt Norikura and Hirayu, amazing colours on Mt Hotaka and the breath-taking plateau of Kamaikoch surrounded by 3,000m class mountains.
- Wild West Japan tour shows off the variety in Tateyama-Kurobe Alpine Route and Japan's deepest gorge. Kurobe Gorge, is ablaze of Autumn Colour for this tour.
- Walking Northern Japan takes you though the brilliant Dewa Sanzen ('three Dewa mountains') along the pligrimage trail and through Zao, Yamader, Ginzan Onsen, Matsushima and the fabulous Urabandai. What an experience!
- Walking Central Japan in Autumn takes you on the Nakasendo trail where the trees are all shades of red and brown and you are surrounded by samurai history. The tour also offers some of the best back street guided walking in Kyoto and Takayama
Had a fabulous time with a great group of people. I loved the country, the culture, the people and everything about the tour – hope to do another tour with JTTE – maybe Hokkaido or Kyushu next time

This was my first trip with JTTE and already I am looking at the program for next year thinking about another one. I liked the fact that it was a small group, the organisation was spot on and the food everywhere was outstanding.
