Meet Your Host Country: Japan

At first, many of us associate Japan with next-gen technology and the neon landscape of mega-cities like Tokyo. However, Japan is also a natural wonderland with 34 national parks spread across its four main islands. As beloved for the snow-capped Mount Fuji as it is for serene forests and surfer-friendly beaches, there's no limit to what you can discover here.

A visit in October brings calm weather and the cultural significance of the harvest season! Outdoor excursions, harvest festivals, seasonal dishes, and arts and culture displays are in full force this time of year.

Mount Fuji

At a height of 12,389 feet, Mount Fuji is the highest mountain in Japan and one of its "Three Holy Mountains". 


It is will located outside of Tokyo and soars above an otherwise softly rolling landscape. This means you can see it from many angles and we're sure to catch a glimpse of the mountain whatever our trip holds in store!

Seasonal Harvests

No adventure is complete without a full stomach. Autumn in Japan means harvest time and the chance to indulge in seasonal items like Japanese sweet potatoes, wild mushrooms, and persimmons. 


We'll take every opportunity we can to sample the comforting dishes of fall with you.

Running the Trails

We've collaborated with local guides and runners to put together trail runs that highlight Japan's natural diversity.


You can expect dirt and stone trails through dense forests, rolling hillsides, and around serene lakes. If we're lucky, you'll get to experience the vibrant fall foliage of Japanese maple trees as you run.
