On the ‘Izu Peninsula Trail’ you will weave your way through coastal walks, tiny fishing villages, and ancient shrines with the Pacific Ocean providing the backdrop and on clear days you will be able to catch spectacular views of Mount Fuji.

The trail weaves its way south along the peninsula’s east coast and mountainous central spine to its southernmost tip at Cape Irozaki, before returning north along the west coast to Shuzenji, a charming and atmospheric onsen thermal hot spring resort town.

The Tokaido Shinkansen bullet train thunders between Tokyo and Kyoto at 285km per hour in a little over two hours, hardly affording time to contemplate its much older namesake. Our significantly more leisurely journey connects the best remaining sections of the Tokaido, taking you through towns and along paths seemingly forgotten since the days when it was the major transport artery through Japan.

Due to a limited number of rooms, we only have one single room available.

This is an excellent tour choice if you have already visited Japan and want to explore some new areas in depth, it is a good complement if you have already done our Nakasendo Way tour. A hallmark of our Japan walking tours is the excellent onsen accommodation, knowledgeable local guides, and exquisite food. Many of the dinners on the tour are multiple courses and the presentations are works of art in themselves.
