I feel exhilarated and free in a new way...

“I would recommend this to anyone really who is interested in travel, yoga, meditation, mindfulness, real food, healing in nature, and connecting with ancient spiritual practices. I'm still exhilarated, my energy and my vibe is somehow elevated. I feel free in a new way… hard to describe. Connected more to something spiritually whole, like a oneness. I just feel so grateful.”

About the trek 

Join me on the oldest Buddhist pilgrimage in Japan for 10 days of trekking, meditation and yoga. Experience authentic Japanese inns, onsens, ancient temples and shrines, and amazing Japanese cuisine. 

The Kunisaki Trek is a 10-day, medium-difficulty hike on Kyushu, the southernmost island of Japan, following mountain paths that monks have walked for more than a thousand years. Together, we will experience ancient trails that wind through sleepy hamlets, verdant forests, along craggy ridges, and over towering cliffs. En route we will pass many stone Buddha statues, temples and shrines, and the caves where monks once found shelter.  

We'll have a full-time bilingual guide from Walk Japan who'll help us to understand and enjoy Japanese culture and teach us about the rich history of the Kunisaki Peninsula. We'll have the chance to stay in atmospheric inns where we can luxuriate in hot springs, gaze at the beautiful scenery, eat ample and delicious Japanese cuisine, and weave Dru yoga and meditation through the whole experience. 

We'll be a maximum of 12 people.

A true privilege with an inspiring group of women...

“Highly recommended for anyone struggling with the mad pace of the modern world. A great way to stop, pause and assess what's important for a fulfilling existence. I loved the trekking. I'm still a novice at the yoga and meditation but I’ll keep going. This was a true privilege with an inspiring group of women.”

Trekking level

The trekking on this tour is recommended for fit people who have a reasonable head for heights. We'll be walking about 4-5 hours each day in a mountainous region, sometimes passing through picturesque hamlets and temple grounds, but otherwise our trek is largely off-road on mountain paths.

The mountain climbs are usually short but they can be steep and require a degree of stamina to reach the peaks. At times, chains and knotted ropes are needed to climb up and down steeper, rocky paths. At other times, a bit of nerve might be required to cross narrow stone bridges that span gaping chasms. But the views and scenery are amazing.

I can't tell you how much I enjoyed this experience...

“Danette, I can’t tell you how much I enjoyed this experience. You're a gifted leader. You gave us each options to take part in what suited us or have more down time when we chose. I'd recommend this type of hiking experience to anyone who needs to slow down, be in Nature and be more Present!”
