DAY 4, 5, 6, 7, 8 – Tuesday April 7 – Saturday April 11, 2020

We start our journey along the Nakasendo Way, visiting the ancient towns as they were hundreds of years ago, staying in traditional Ryokans (guesthouses) and experiencing the true culture of the regions. We’ll walk through the stunning Kiso Valley, sure to be a highlight for the photographers. We’ll be there during Cherry Blossom season so with luck we’ll get some incredible photos.

We will also travel by train between some of the towns so that we can visit the highlights of the Nakasendo Way, with walking between 10 – 20 kilometres a day, at a comfortable pace. 

Our luggage will travel between towns so you’ll only need to carry a day pack with a change of clothes and toiletries, making the Walk much more enjoyable for us all!

We end our walk in Tokyo, sure to be an amazing experience!
