Nakasendo Trail Virtual Challenge

The Nakasendo (meaning “Central Mountain Route”) is an old walking trail that connects Tokyo and Kyoto, weaving through the mountains of central Japan. It was established in the Edo period in feudal Japan, in the time of the Shoguns, and provided a good way for travellers and merchants to walk between the two cities. The trek usually takes several days and travellers can rest overnight at local inns in the various villages along the trail.

The Nakasendo Trail the unique opportunity to experience the magical landscape of Japan, to explore its charming, well-preserved traditional villages and to get a glimpse into the beautiful Japanese culture, by walking from Tokyo to Kyoto just like the Japanese travellers of old.
