Virtual Guided Tour of Takayama

Virtual Guided Tour of Takayama

star-5
I created the tours online LIVE as an active response towards what is happening all around the world in this period. But also for who cannot effort to travel for any reason. My contribution to help my fellow guides, the tourism and the tours company to keep up our business. Not everybody is allowed to walk around or even go outside in some countries so, I thought what if I am able to accompany my clients on tours, but with a video chat instead! So one of the solutions of my tours online LIVE is that is going to be cheaper than regular tours! Why? Because you are going to be at home, while I am going to guide you into your dreams! Once the payment has been confirmed from the Amico del solevante, and your "tour online LIVE" date is up, you just make a video chat with: 1) A pair of headphones with microphone 2) A smartphone or personal computer / laptop 3) One of the apps (Whatzapp, Line, Facetime or Skype only) Make sure that the internet connectionand video quality works! Thats it! *

Nakasendo self-guided walking tour 2 days

Nakasendo self-guided walking tour 2 days

star-4
Over the course of two days of an easy walk (self-guided tour) along the Nakasendo road and one overnight stay at a Minshuku (family run lodging), immerse yourself in Japan's folkloric landscapes between the villages of Nakatsugawa and Tsumago. During Japan's feudal period (1603-1868), the Nakasendo road was one of the five routes that linked the economic hub, Tokyo, to the imperial capital, Kyoto. Unlike the Tokaido road, which was replaced by today's Shinkansen train, the Nakasendo was saved from rampant modernization and still upholds an old-fashioned charm. Created by general Tokugawa in order to assert his political domination, the route spans a distance of 534 kilometers and includes 69 rest stops. Its name literally means "mountain road" and is a means of communication in case of a large flood on the Tokaido: the coastal road. Travelers should have a moderate physical fitness level

Explore Kiso Valley : Magome - Tsumago Mountain Trail Walk

Explore Kiso Valley : Magome - Tsumago Mountain Trail Walk

star-5
Nakasendo was formerly known as the Higashisendo and connects Kyoto and the eastern provinces including present day Tokyo. It was one of five highways created within a 7 year period from 1601 along with the Tokaido, Nikko, Oshu, and Koshu. This tour is a 5 hour mountain trail walk that traverses along a 9km trail that connects the two most beautiful post towns along the Nakasendo - Magome-Juku and Tsumago-Juku. Both towns still retain their medieval flare. Your guide will show you the commercial town in the Tono region that flourished when the highway was active. From cobbled roads going through Magome-Juku, the view of Mt. Ena, a quaint teahouse on a mountain pass, and beautiful mountain village scenery around Tsumago-Juku, there is no doubt that you will feel like you've been transported back to medieval Japan.
