HIKING & TREKKING TOURS IN JAPAN

"IN EVERY WALK WITH NATURE, ONE RECEIVES FAR MORE THAN HE SEEKS."
John Muir

Japan is an incredible hiking and trekking destination. 

Come and explore the highlights of Japan's amazing mountains with us, on one of our one-day hiking or multi-day trekking tours.

The name "Japan" elicits a flood of exciting images across the mind - scenes ranging from vibrant mega-cities whose labyrinth streets buzz with the hum of neon lights, to imposing temples and shrines standing in silent tribute to thousands of years of unique and fascinating history, religion and culture. Aside from the classic snapshot of a solitary, snow-capped Fuji rising above the plains, few people's thoughts would wander as far as nature.

Yet, Japan is truly an "undiscovered" hiker and trekker's paradise. In fact, more than 70% of the country is mountainous, and nearly the same percent is blanketed in forests. These beautiful and diverse preserved natural areas offer extraordinary outdoor opportunities all over the country, and there is something for everyone with inspiring trails of every type, length and difficulty.

We have had our boots on the ground exploring these areas extensively on foot for most of the last two decades, and would love to guide you on an unforgettable adventure through Japan's awe-inspiring landscapes. Below you will find a list of the current and upcoming hiking and trekking tours we have lined up. Take a look now and check back regularly, as we will be expanding our offerings significantly in 2020. Finally, if you have any questions please do not hesitate to ask; we are here to help you got the most out of your trip to Japan (and we know that successful trips start long before the day of departure.)
