Mater Foundation’s Miles for Miracles is your chance to discover the Nakasendo Trail and raise funds to continue vital research into preventing neurodevelopmental problems that can arise in premature babies.

Explore Japan’s fascinating history and unique culture on this 12-day adventure through one of the historic highways of Japan—the Nakasendo, known as ‘the road through the mountains’.

The Nakasendo Way brings to life the majesty and ancient tradition of Japan. On this trek, you will gain insight into feudal Japan, the samurai warriors of the Edo Period and modern village life, while following some of the best-preserved sections of this ancient highway.

We begin in Kyoto, for a full-day city sightseeing tour before making our way through trees, parks and small villages, enjoying fine regional cuisine along the way—prepared by the friendly Japanese locals. You’ll cross towns Magome, Tsumago and Narai towards the bustling city of Tokyo, where you are free to explore its museums, grand temples, atmospheric zen gardens and fascinating modern sci-fi streetscapes.

Challenge yourself on the trail, gain an authentic cultural experience in Japan and raise funds to improve the odds for babies born prematurely.
