Mainland Japan & Mt Fuji

Posted: December 10, 2021

Inward adventure and transformational travel take center stage in mainland Japan, where we meet locals making a real impact in their communities, encounter and learn about age-old spiritual traditions. We begin by forest bathing where the internationally renowned Japanese Haiku poet Matsuo Basho was inspired to write. Learn about the Edo time period, and stay in traditional-style accommodation on the historical Nakasendo Walk Way. Discover several pilgrimage routes, their history, and the locals who are keeping these paths and communities well and alive today carrying traditions forward while also creating new ones. Continuing along the journey, we ascend to the summit of Mt. Fuji where our learnings of pilgrimages and cultural experiences culminate.
