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.
Kamikochi is a popular resort in the Northern Japan Alps, offering some of Japan's most spectacular mountain scenery. With one of the most famous hiking paths in all Japan, we set foot there on our quest for traditional Japan. Kamikochi hiking course along the Azusa River is well maintained and almost flat. This value-packed trail day hike with a government-licensed and experienced multilingual tour guide is a fantastic and efficient way to explore Japan Alps! It is about 3.5 kilometres (2 miles) long and has only gentle elevation changes which takes around 2-4 hours to easy walk at a leisurely pace. Let us know what you would like to experience and we will customize a four-hours tour that's best for you! Note*1: The National Government Licensed Guide Interpreter certification is issued by the Japanese government requires a good knowledge and understanding of Japanese culture and history.
