Reviews

We really got to experience Japan through the bike tour by seeing the magnificent countryside, eating the local traditional food, enjoying the accommodation, and soaking in the Onsens at the end of every day. Our guides also made our tour a memorable experience. We thoroughly enjoyed ourselves.

This is a very scenic ride through the southernmost major islands. Hills and Dale's galore. Leader Eric a 20plus veteran in Japan provides a lot of cultural contexts. We have done a number of rides, this might have been the best
