This is our most popular trip in Japan. We ascend mountain trails and take valley hikes to get a measure of the landscape and its centuries-long history of hermitage and pilgrimage. The 'backroads' theme continues even in the cities as we explore the heart of teeming Tokyo, Kyoto and Osaka. Our itinerary includes an ascent of one of the mountains close to Mt. Fuji and a sojourn in a rural town in the southern Alps.

We also walk along Japan's oldest forest trail, winding through rice paddies and bamboo groves, past ancient tombs following an early pilgrim route through cherry and cedar forests. The traditional, family-run inns we stay at are a definite highlight of this itinerary.

Airfare is not included in the tour price.
