“Off the beaten track walking tours in Japan. Explore "hidden" Japan. Enjoy its food, customs, society and history.”
Walk Japan pioneers and specialises in 'off the beaten track' walking holiday tours of Japan. Since 1992, the Company has been introducing unknown areas of Japan in contexts that are informative and make sense of sights and customs that would otherwise remain elusive to most visitors. Avoiding the 'bus tour' style excursions, Walk Japan's tours bring Japan up close by mixing in with its people. They use public transport where practical in its many varied and efficient guises, and visit local inns (and the odd temple) and restaurants that otherwise remain little known to the outside world.
Walk Japan is skilled at unveiling many aspects of Japan during the course of its tours. Since its beginnings the company has taken many people from North America, Europe, Asia and Australasia to beautiful and interesting areas of Japan that would otherwise be difficult to access and fully appreciate. Currently, Walk Japan has five regular scheduled tours and is planning more for the future. Each year the Company also creates many different custom tours tailored to clients' particular requirements and interests.
