JAPAN

WALKING IN KYUSHU

Yakushima & Kunisaki Trail

With its fusion of ancient traditions and cutting-edge modernity, Japan is undoubtedly one of the most intriguing places in the Orient. Join us as we explore some of the countries least travelled areas. 

From the modern port city of Fukuoka, with its famous Hakata Ramen, to historic Kunisaki and its monk trails, the fisherman and farmer culture of Ojika paired with its traditional rural lifestyle, is just the beginning.

 

Experience a secluded and unspoilt island paradise on UNESCO forested Yakushima, known as the 'island of ancient forests and water' and a world away from the hustle and bustle of Japan’s megacities. Kyushu is an island of vast contrasts exploding with natural beauty – Japan’s hidden and ancient isle.
