Japanese Alps

Japanese Alps Trips

Less well-known than their European namesake, but equally dramatic, the Japanese Alps stretch from Central Honshu to the far north of the main island, and offer world-class trekking as well as picturesque towns, temples and castles. 

High on any trekker's list should be the ascent of Mount Yarigatake, the 'Japanese Matterhorn', while those searching for a cultural experience shouldn't miss Matsumoto Castle – also known as Crow Castle, due to its black exterior – or the traditional architecture of Takayama, nestled in the foothills of some of Asia's most spectacular peaks.
