As one of the least densely populated areas of Japan, Tohoku is known for its beautiful mountainous scenery, virgin beech forests, volcanic peaks and lakes. We’ll enjoy gentle hiking at Goshikinuma, a cluster of five volcanic lakes, each with its unique colour, ranging from reddish-green to cobalt blue; and at Shirakami Sanchi, the largest virgin beech forest in East Asia, and a UNESCO listed area.
In fact, this region is home to three UNESCO-listed sites, the most impressive being the vast array of temples in Nikko, where 103 of the buildings and structures as well as their natural setting has been declared a World Heritage site. On our travels, we’ll stay in a mix of hotels and traditional Ryokans, some with naturally occurring hot spring baths on site.
Join us for a step away from modern life, to wander amongst breathtaking natural beauty and to gain a fantastic insight into Japanese history, culture and traditional customs.
