Samurai old road

The old road Matsunoyama Kaido has played various roles in its long history. It is a genuine "Samurai Road" that Echigo warlord Kenshin Uesugi walked many times in the Kanto region. Stone Buddha statues and shrines stand quietly along the way, and it feels like you are hoping for the safety of people passing by. As you walk along the ridge of the mountain, you will see beautiful rice terraces and mountains that change their appearance depending on the season, and suddenly small animals and insects appear.

From village to village

Trekking while blending in with the life of a satoyama that coexists with nature. Along the way, you will have the opportunity to interact with the people of the village. Occasionally, you may have the opportunity to go home and hear stories about the village's old stories, history, and life in a snowy country. Please feel the special daily life that you can see from your daily life.

Experienced dedicated guide

An exclusive guide who lives in Tokamachi and is familiar with the area will help you along the way. In addition to trekking guides, we also support interaction with the people of the village and lectures on how to enjoy nature.
