Back Country & Beyond

Is it your dream that you soak yourself in hidden Onsen?

Do you want to visit the real nature of Western Japan?

For the first timer or especially a repeating tourist, your wish is to visit the back country or unexplored regions of Japan.

Uniquely, there are some UNESCO World Heritages sites in Western Japan.

Or many back country in Western Japan, even Japanese have never visited are reachable from Osaka area.

And those areas preserve the wilderness or great heritage which you will be totally amazed.

Usually, this back country tour requires cars since the public transportations are not convenient.

And at the traditional inn, you cannot even book because they do not use the online booking or speak only Japanese.

I will guide you to those areas for your new discovery of Japan.
