Exploring North-East Japan’s snow scapes and hot springs

With Walk Japan’s two new walking tours this February, explore the rural Tohoku mountains in North East Japan with the Tohoku Hot Spring Snow Tour, a nine-day trip that will see you climb the Yamadera temple, tackle the spectacular juhyo snow monsters, and sleep in charming hot spring villages with onsen baths while experiencing the warm hospitality of the locals.

“Snowshoe trekking tours are increasingly popular and we wanted to add the beautiful Tohoku region to our roster of winter tours. The tour took two years to come to fruition once we started to develop it,” said Walk Japan CEO Paul Christie.

Ditch the Tokaido Shinkansen bullet train for the eight-day Tokaido Trail that will bring you to the original Eastern Sea Road, the most significant route of the Edo Period, where you can marvel at the bygone towns of ancient Japan, through to its famed cities Tokyo, Nagoya, and Kyoto.
