Private Old Post Towns Nakasendo Tour (5d/4n)

Nakasendo Tour Package Description

The Nakasendo is an old trail that was 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 route has disappeared or is covered with concrete.

Luckily, the part in Nagano and Gifu prefectures still remains as it was in the feudal time because of the remote location in the mountains. These are the special features of this tour:

1. You will visit 3 of the best-preserved post towns; Narai, Tsumago, and Magome.

2. On the route, you will walk through the primeval forest, see waterfalls, and be able to observe the region’s idyllic rural life with rice and vegetable fields.

3. You will visit Matsumoto Castle, which is one of the only 12 original castles remaining in Japan.

4. This is a self-guided tour for travelers who come with at least 2 persons. We will prepare all the details of the tour and provide you with an English hiking map. It is easy to follow the trail with this map. This tour is also available as a guided tour.
