There is also the immensely popular Shikoku Pilgrim Trail, where to walk from temple to temple on one of Japans stunning islands. Alternatively, walk the Nakasendo Trail through rural Japan through the central mountains of Japan. A hiking route used since feudal times as an ancient highway that linked Kyoto and Tokyo through Japan's central mountains. 

We have selected some key extensions to add on too so that you are getting the very best out of your time in Japan. These include a combination of the two ancient capitals of Japan in Nara and Asuka, the beautiful and spiritual Mount Koya, home of Shingon Buddhism where you will stay overnight in a Buddhist temple, and finally Nikko, home to the mausoleum of Shogun Tokugawa Leyasu. 

We have carefully selected and researched our favourite walks so whatever your interests we can arrange your ideal walking holiday in Japan.
