The Way of the Samurai
In feudal times, samurai, merchants and artisans travelled between Kyoto and Tokyo on an ancient trading route known as the Nakasendo Trail. With our brand-new 14 day Discovery Holiday we will take you on a unique journey by foot, train and bicycle to gain a fascinating insight into the Japanese culture and way of life. On route you will stay in traditional Inns and Buddhist Pilgrim Lodges. If you ever wanted to discover the real Japan and it's amazing history, culture and people 'The Way of the Samurai' has been especially designed with you in mind. The holiday spends time in Tokyo and an excursion to the sacred forests and mountains of Nikko. With dates in May and October, considered to be the best times to visit, this holiday is now available to book.
