A country where ancient traditions meet state-oftheart technology, where Buddhist temples adorn most cities and where entire districts are dedicated to anime and manga. It’s an attention to detail that allows Japan to excel in everything it touches. From an uberefficient public transport system to the immaculate outdoors and world-famous cuisine, Japan is unique and simply captivating.

Backstreets Tour of Tokyo’s Shimokitazawa

Tokyo

Discover Tokyo under the surface with two long-term expat residents. By foot or bicycle, travel to Shimokitazawa, a neighbourhood packed with boutiques, cafes and eateries. A world away from Tokyo’s sprawling department stores, it’s a great place to pick up some unique gifts or simply wander the narrow streets. The nearby Kitazawa River Greenway is also a great place to stroll, particularly in cherry blossom season.

Discova the difference

Tokyo’s equivalent of Shoreditch – this backstreet walking tour makes for a refreshing change to the big commercial centres like Shibuya and dives into this trendy hipster neighbourhood.

Off-The-Beaten Track Hiking in the Japanese Alps

Japanese Alps

Once an important route connecting Tokyo and Kyoto, the Nakasendo Trail is nowadays a popular hiking spot in the Japanese Alps. Escape the crowds along the Kiso Valley and opt for the upper stretch of the trail to find family-run ‘minshuku’ guesthouses and Japanese hot baths. Intrepid hikers can follow the trail all the way down to Yokokawa town with its beautiful gorge.

Discova the difference

A more authentic alternative to the scenic Nakasendo Trail including local inns, private Japanese-style open-air baths and a beautiful gorge at the end of the trail.
