Explore the most popular city walk trails in Japan with hand-curated trail maps and driving directions as well as detailed reviews and photos from hikers, campers and nature lovers like you.

This is a great route, but is paved and along the side of one of the busier routes in Okinawa. Hence why I chose to run it versus a leisurely hike (I didn’t want to be bored)
Still really cool to cross off the bucket list and will probably do it again with friends, but not my favorite route due to the road and lack of actual “trail”

An extended walk after Philosopher’s walk, culture and beautiful cherry blossoms with colorful kimonos.

Did it on rental bikes which was extremely fun and delightful

Stayed in Japan for two weeks and this was definitely a highlight. Beautiful castle with a wide moat surrounding its gates. Wonderful views from inside.

Alright walk, it's not a trail and just a casual stroll at most through the gardens of the imperial palace, but if you can't get out of the city, it will do.

Elaborate Description, fully detailed Waypoints, not to forget useful Tips, really commendable!

good place to walk. very flat. you can find some nice cafes along the path.

So I actually did this by accident. I was just exploring on one of my off days, when I just happened to summit a mountain and found out what I had done. It was an amazing hike: very beautiful. I saw a fox, which made my day. Plus a few deer. It was greatZ highly recommend.

After many years on Okinawa, I finally completed this hike from tip-to-tip of Okinawa (or at least close enough). I hiked for three days and I took a rest day before completing the third day of hiking. Day 1 (18 Feb 2017) was from Hedo Point to a hostel in Nago City (~30 miles). Day 2 was from Nago to Chatan (~30 miles). Day 3 was a rest day. Day 4 was from Chatan to Peace Memorial Park (~18 miles). Much of the route was along Route 58 which is a busy 2-4 lane roadway (especially in the mid-section of the island) going North/South throughout Okinawa. The first half of the hike is along the coast and the ocean is almost constantly present on your right side. The last day was in mostly built-up areas until the rural section near the end. I enjoyed the hike and the challenge of doing mileage day-after-day. My pack was relatively light and I was able to get food/drink from Family Marts, Lawsons, and the ever-present vending machines.

The scenery is beautiful, of course, especially during cherry blossom season or fall foliage, but it really is more of a stroll than anything else. The path is flat for the most part; the plus side is that it's almost barrier-free / wheelchair-friendly, the downside is that it can be VERY crowded.

Awesome tour! Loved all the pottery shops and the fake food things. Too bad that I can only bring limited amount of these back. Otherwise, I'd spent a whole day there! The Asakusa temple was really great, too! I went to the temple at night and there were a lot of local people! Kind of like a night market in front of the temple. Lots of snacks and sweets stores. They are really delicious! I'd encourage you to try many different ones. All the different kinds of snacks there were pretty amazing. The temple at night was really beautiful. The tower next to it was stunning! Got a lot of amazing photos there.

Highly recommended!
