Walking Tours of Japan

The Walking Tours of Japan are ideal for those who enjoy light hikes (up to 8 or 9 kilometres per hike). Most importantly, the tours are well suited to those wishing to avoid carrying large (heavy) backpacks and just enjoying what is around them. The small groups enable you to interact directly with you knowledgeable guides to get the most from your walks.

These hiking Tours of Japan range from exploring some of Japan's most pristine nature to the less touristy but more interesting back streets of large cities. Along the way you will naturally have close contact with the Japanese people and their culture. The tours will show you some of the best icons and introduce you to specially selected and beautifully prepared Japanese food.

From the highest mountain to the deepest gorge, exploring Japan’s central mountainous region and its less populated western coast at peak autumn-time is simply… WILD!

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.
