If you've a yen for yesteryear, this extended walk through beautiful rural Japan promises to be a real treat.
The Nakasendo Trail linked Kyoto to Tokyo during Japan’s feudal period and was traversed by lords, samurai, merchants and travellers.
The 69 post towns that lined the route offered travellers a place to rest before they continued on their journey.
Outdoor Travel has a 12-day walking holiday that includes four days on the Nakasendo Trail. The package begins in Tokyo and includes day walking along the ancient route and through well-preserved Edo period villages with overnight stays in country inns, dining on regional cuisine.
Travellers will also explore the bustling streets of Tokyo, the shrines and temples of Nara and Kyoto’s gardens, teahouses and Geisha district.
The package costs from $5995 per person twin share with a $300 discount per person on some departures in April and May. It includes six nights of three or four-star hotel accommodation, five nights in traditional Ryokan, Minshuku or Shukubo, 11 breakfasts, seven dinners, guided walks and luggage transfers.
