Type of Trip
Join me for a trip around the most beautiful places for trekking in Honshu, the main island of Japan. We’ll be traversing many spots near Mount Fuji (3776 m), like Kamakura, Hakone, Izu, Minobu and Misaka.
These breathtaking landscapes have inspired the Ukiyo-e, the traditional japanese paintings, realized by Katsushika Hokusai.
Each day we’ll walk from 4 to 6 hours, and go from one place to another by train or car. This will let us to enjoy the best places of this area only in a few days.
Besides, we can adapt the program according to the available time you have in Japan. Actually, we can also mix this tour with the ascent of Mount Fuji.
Mount Fuji area is probably one of the most beautiful places of Japan. I strongly recommend you to go there if you have few days to spent near Tokyo. Furthermore, leaving with a Japanese guide will enable you to visit the right spots and learn about our culture.
If you are interested in this adventure adventure that mixes hiking and cultural sightseeing, please contact me. It will be my pleasure to guide and take care of you during this short trip.
