What are the images of Japan for you? May be it is ancient temples and shrines in Kyoto, may be it is the image of ultra modern Tokyo, and may be it is the snow-capped mighty Mt. Fuji.
All these are, yes, popular images of Japan. So the most of tourists visit Tokyo, Mt. Fuji and Kyoto on a trip, and this route is called “golden route”.
Other than the golden route, busy tourists may visit other places like Nara, Takayama, Hiroshima and Fukuoka. But they are not often seen in other places, especially where regular tours are not available.
We highly recommend to have a walk or several walks in Japan. You can enjoy rural towns, nature, local culture and also adventure, if you like.
