WALK JAPAN’S ANCIENT PILGRIMAGE ROUTES ALONG THE KUMANO KODO
After exploring the modern civilisation of Tokyo and eating our way through Yakitori Alley we walk part of the ancient Nakasendo Way that once linked Tokyo and Kyoto. Uncover Kyoto’s most ancient shrines and pathways before we head off the beaten track to the Kumano Kodo region; one of Japan’s most remote and rewarding pilgrimage routes. This moderate walking trip focuses on beautiful scenery and nature, rural life, and following in the footsteps of religious pilgrimages on some of the country’s most historic walks. Staying in traditional ryokans along the way, this journey invites full immersion into the authentic Japanese culture and way of life.
