2023 Nakasendo Trail and Old Post Towns in Spring Tour (5d/4n)

Join us on the Nakasendo Trail and Old Post Towns in Spring Tour in 2023!

The Nakasendo is an old trail constructed 400 years ago by the Tokugawa Shogunate as one of the major routes between Edo (Tokyo now) and Kyoto. It was a long route, the total length was 526 km with 69 post towns in between. Because of the construction of the new highways and freeways, most of the routes disappeared or were covered with concrete, but the part in Nagano and Gifu prefectures still remains as it was during the feudal time because of its remote location in the mountains. You can enjoy some unique rural scenery in the spring with its beautiful flowers and awakening nature.
