Shinetsu Trail Tour in 2016 was very successful again! Same as last year's, Everyone walked through the entire trail over 5 days, experienced local culture in the area, enjoyed meeting with people in Japan.
Some of the guests had been to Japan before but never been to these places we'd visit during the tour. I personally love this trip, not only to enjoy the adventure, but sharing and learning new things about my own country with the guests.
We always do the best to offer the guests the opportunity of the cultural experience on top of hiking experience to make this tour unique and special.
Hope to have more hikers from North America joining our Japan tour in the future.

Please enjoy it!

We took a train from Shinjuku to Mt.Takao for hike.

The trail is well-maintained and signed, and we noticed how clean the trail was. Basically no trash on the trail that welcome hundreds of hikers everyday. Later in our hike, we found it out why it is kept so clean because there are hikers voluntarily clean the trail as they hike!
