Japan on foot
FOR travellers wanting to escape Japan’s iconic city bustle, Tomato Travel offers walking tours that explore some of the country’s less traversed regions at a slower pace.
The seven-day Tsuwano and Hagi-Okan Walking Tour takes guests through the heartland of Japan to take in its many fishing villages, rural settlements, and many impressive religious temples.
Highlights along the stroll include the seaside town of Susa, the hot spring resort of Tamagawa Onsen, the 18th century Taikodani Inari Shrine, and the secluded Kita-Nagato Kaigan Quasi National Park famed for its many unique ocean lookout spots.
Further draw cards include a visit to the award-winning Sumikawa Brewery, renowned for its premium sake Toyou Bijin which was famously served at a 2016 meeting between Russian President Vladimir Putin and Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe.
The package features six nights of accommodation, meals, a tour guide throughout, transport, and monument entrance fees. Prices for the walking tour lead in at $5,299 per person, twin share.
