Dying to catch the Cherry Blossom season but you are too afraid of crowds right now?
Here are some options for you to enjoy off-the-beaten-path tours to avoid crowds.
1. Oita Hot Spring Trail
A gentle guided walking trail that leads from hot spring to hot spring in rural Oita, the onsen capital of Japan. On this 6-day, 5-night tour, visitors enjoy onsen and visit beautiful rural areas surrounded by forested valleys, including a stroll along the Yabakei riverbanks, where a classic row of Japanese cherry trees bloom. Oita’s iconic near-white cherry blossom petals float down onto the pathway, making for a picture-perfect nature walk.
There is no minimun size, so the tour will still go on even if there you are the only person in the group!
