Awesome LIVE ZOOM Tour of Kyoto, Osaka or Nara

Available from Oct 27

Awesome LIVE ZOOM Tour of Kyoto, Osaka or Nara

This is a ZOOM TOUR. No one can do this tour like me. It is the next best thing to being here. Please disregard the stupid licensing thing as no one is required to be licensed. I am authorized to do tours and I have 22 years of experience as a professional, interpretive, guide, and pretty much no one, can provide these tours like I can. I am also a native English Speaker. I also tell bad jokes..... My tours are interactive, you get to relax at home while I do all the walking and you get to explore this area I am in of Japan in the comfort of your own home. Since a lot of people either will not be able to come to Japan or will not be able to afford to bring the fam here for a while because of this crazy virus thing going on, this is the next step. Make a sushi party at home and you guys relax and let me do the leg work. You will love it!

8 Nights Shin-Etsu Trail Full Track Hike - Nozawa Onsen, Japan

Available tomorrow

8 Nights Shin-Etsu Trail Full Track Hike - Nozawa Onsen, Japan

The 80km Shinetsu trail, the best woodland trail in Japan, runs over the ridges of the Sekida mountains at about 1,000 meters above sea level, forming a boundary between Nagano and Niigata prefectures. It is one of the few long trails in Japan. This area is blessed with a rich ecosystem nurtured by Japanese beech tree forests. Historically, there were 16 passages connecting Nagano with Niigata. The forests are perhaps best known for their beech trees. The tall, well-shaped beech trees form a corridor of nature along the path. The earth-packed trail also makes it easy to walk. Spring (from mid-June to the end of July) and autumn (from mid-September to the end of October) are great seasons to visit the trail. In the spring, the last traces of snow can be seen among new greenery and flowers bursting into bloom. In the fall, hikers can enjoy the brilliant colors of autumn leaves.

Nakasendo self-guided walking tour 2 days

Available from Oct 26

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
