This is a ZOOM TOUR. No one can do this tour like me. It is the next best thing to being here. Please disregard the stupid licensing thing as no one is required to be licensed. I am authorized to do tours and I have 22 years of experience as a professional, interpretive, guide, and pretty much no one, can provide these tours like I can. I am also a native English Speaker. I also tell bad jokes..... My tours are interactive, you get to relax at home while I do all the walking and you get to explore this area I am in of Japan in the comfort of your own home. Since a lot of people either will not be able to come to Japan or will not be able to afford to bring the fam here for a while because of this crazy virus thing going on, this is the next step. Make a sushi party at home and you guys relax and let me do the leg work. You will love it!

* A traveler said: "I greatly enjoyed this tour. My guide, Masa, was very genial and engaging. It was a good way to find out a little more about Japan and to discover some nice bars too. Some may find this tour a little expensive however I thought it was great value for money as I was the only one on the tour and so had the undivided attention of the guide. The last bar we visited was a real gem, it would have only fitted 10 people at the most and was very eclectic in its decor. Some excellent live music too at this bar. All in all good fun."

Nakasendo self-guided walking tour 2 days
From
$729.17
Over the course of two days of an easy walk (self-guided tour) along the Nakasendo road and one overnight stay at a Minshuku (family run lodging), immerse yourself in Japan's folkloric landscapes between the villages of Nakatsugawa and Tsumago. During Japan's feudal period (1603-1868), the Nakasendo road was one of the five routes that linked the economic hub, Tokyo, to the imperial capital, Kyoto. Unlike the Tokaido road, which was replaced by today's Shinkansen train, the Nakasendo was saved from rampant modernization and still upholds an old-fashioned charm. Created by general Tokugawa in order to assert his political domination, the route spans a distance of 534 kilometers and includes 69 rest stops. Its name literally means "mountain road" and is a means of communication in case of a large flood on the Tokaido: the coastal road. Travelers should have a moderate physical fitness level
