Walk in the Footsteps of the Castle Lords of Japan

Walk in the Footsteps of the Castle Lords of Japan

A historic walk halfway between a stroll and hike! The ancient lords of Japan made a pilgrimage to Tokyo once every two years, as part of their feudal duties. Long foot hikes therefore awaited the Matsumoto Castle’s lords who also braved the Zenkoji Road, an extension of the famous Nakasendo Road on regular spiritual journeys to the Buddhist temple in Nagano City. During each of these trips, the lords stayed in luxurious hotels such as the Satoyama Villa Honjin. The tour begins at Matsumoto Castle in front of the main gate which was once an access way to the seat of feudal power. As you approach Kariyahara Pass for a short hike, you will discover the ancient intersection between Tokyo, Matsumoto and Nagano. This also happens to be the location of the very first toll road in Japan! After passage through Shiga-mura, you'll stop at the Satoyama Villa Honjin with its authentic architecture! It is in this profound Japanese atmosphere that you can enjoy a classic Japanese Bento Lunch.
