Video: Japan’s Nakasendo Trail

The Nakasendo trail is a historic inn-to-inn walking route that linked Kyoto to Tokyo during Japan’s feudal period. It was the ‘road through the mountains’ (as opposed to the Tokaido route which traveled the Pacific coast) traveled by feudal lords and their retinues, samurai, merchants, and travelers. We spend a few nights in the vibrant cities of Kyoto and Tokyo with a few days on the trail in between. Check out the full itinerary.  Opt for a Japan guided tour with Boundless Journeys to fully experience the Nakasendo Trail in pristine perfection. Immerse yourself in the expertise of authentic tour guides, enjoy handpicked accommodations, and relish inclusive food and beverage offerings. Your journey along the Nakasendo Trail promises an unparalleled adventure with every detail meticulously curated for your exploration.
