Discover an Unexplored Area
What images come to mind when you hear “unchartered lands”? The Amazon? Cannibals? Indiana Jones, perhaps?

Unfortunately, you will find neither cannibals nor Indiana Jones in Japan, even though there is a famous ramen shop in Osaka which Harrison Ford once visited. History-rich Japan, divided into remote regions by mountains and sea, actually has many such mysterious, lesser-known areas with unique cultures unknown to city dwellers, not covered in guidebooks.

Although difficult to access by train, many of these places are not actually closed off to visitors or tourists. These remote areas are merely treasured by their inhabitants, eager to preserve the natural beauty and longstanding traditions of their land. They are usually welcoming to visitors who come their way, even though there may be a language barrier.

If you are tired of crowded places and tourist-ridden spots, why not let us lead you off the beaten path? That way, you can really experience the gorgeous simplicity that is the heart of Japan.
