Announcing our partnership with Walk Japan
Walk Japan have to be one of the most impressive firms Walkopedia has met: meticulously selected and researched routes and places to stay; an obsessive's attention to detail; excellent information on the routes and the ability to deploy guides who know a lot but wear it lightly. And, to our surprise (we like many still thought Japan is expensive) our walk with them was good value! We are proud that we have become partners.
