Greetings from the Heartland JAPAN Newsletter Editor!
My name is Niki and I am the Editor for the fortnightly newsletter from Heartland JAPAN. Find out all about our new tour to Japan’s holiest mountain!

Top News: NEW Products 

Our intern Martina last week visited Mt. Fuji, including some of the spots on our new tour: The Many Sides of Holy Mt. Fuji. This trip is a 3 day 2 night getaway to Japan’s most holy mountain

From trekking through Aokigahara “Sea of Trees”, a vast forest that lies at the foot of Mt. Fuji, and hiking up to the Fifth Station, to viewing the perfect silhouette of the mountain from Lake Sai, and visiting a sake brewery, this trip promises an insight into the importance of Mt. Fuji to the Japanese people as well as fantastic natural sites!

This Week’s Soundbite Review

This is a snapshot of Alex’s experience with us on our 7 day 6 night Izumo, Iwami Ginzan & Gonokawa River Trail tour:

“The Heartland JAPAN Tour lifts the curtain on the real Japan: local people in their communities living with respect for their environment and their culture as they have done for hundreds of years.”
