Journey back in time to the ancient world of Japanese pilgrims and samurai by joining us for an unforgettable pickleball experience along the legendary Samurai Trail. On this tour, we will wander deep into the forests of the Sekida Mountain Range, trek along the 400-year-old Nakasendo Road, and visit some of the most well-preserved, historical towns in the entire country. As an added bonus, we’ll be playing pickleball twice along our route! Accommodation will feature cozy cabins in the woods, Western-style hotels, and traditional Japanese inns (Ryokans) with their own hot springs. If you’re not a fan of crowded cities or have visited Japan previously and want to take a deeper dive into the culture, history, or rural lifestyle of this spectacular place, this is the trip for you!
