About this Cycle Tour

Reviews

The bikes were great. The food was exceptionally well chosen. The Onsen were soothing as always.

The best way to see any country is on a bike, this tour did not disappoint. Food and accommodation was great and good cycling thanks to knowledgeable guides.

Graham PriceOctober 2019

Guides Eric and Joe were helpful, informative, fun, & professional. The group was well organized, so rides through spectacular scenery were fun & challenging. We ate a wonderful selection of local Japanese foods, all well presented. An Onsen at the end of the ride in each location was quite a bonus and a genuine Japanese cultural experience!
