Photogenic Japan


14 Days, 13 Nights

Head off the beaten path to discover some of Japan’s most authentic regions and best-preserved culture. Over the course of this itinerary, you will head into Japan’s deep heart. You will walk in the footsteps of pilgrims as you make your way along the Nakasendo Way and you will have the chance to explore the stairs and secrets of Matsumoto Castle. Relax in the pretty mountain town of Yudanaka Onsen and visit the adorable snow monkeys. You’ll also see the splendid vistas of Mt Fuji reflected on Lake Kawaguchi and will have the chance to explore a traditional fishing village for a look at a way of life in Japan that is rapidly disappearing. This trip will show you some of the country’s hidden gems that have long been out of the eyes and reach of tourists, and provides excellent opportunities for photography.
