Adam Downham

My interest in adventure travel and sustainability comes from a personal interest in ecology and looking after the planet. I feel very lucky to be able to show guests lesser-known Japan.

What places and activities do you specialize in?

"We specialize in rural off the beaten path Japan and have a strong expertise in the Nakasendo, the Kumano Kodo, and the Shikoku 88 pilgrimage route. In addition we are pleased to offer walking and stays at Mount Koya, Nara, and Asuka and can arrange tours that include many other UNESCO World Heritage sites in Japan. "

How did you get involved in travel?

"I explored extensively around Japan before I moved into travel; it was the perfect application of my experience."

Please share a unique travel experience you will never forget.

"Hiking in the National Parks of eastern Iceland have some of the most beautiful scenery in the world. It makes a wonderful contrast from the thermal hot springs and excellent cafe culture in and around Reykjavik."
