About this Cycle Tour

The forested slopes of Kunisaki peninsula of Kyushu have samurai castles, Buddhist temples, and rugged volcanic nature to reveal. Many overlook this remote corner of Kyushu, but those who make the effort will discover some of the most undisturbed pawā spotto (spiritual places) in all of Japan.

Visit Kyushu National Museum then start cycling in Dazaifu, visiting the shrine and temple before arriving in a hot spring resort and Edo-era mer-chant town of Hida.

We change terrain and have a bit of a climb, slowly make our way up to Oishitoge Pass (475 m). But the reward is a terrific downhill to the town of Usa.

If you love onsens, then this tour is for you!

I would like to say that Joe, our other guide, was great! He was funny and upbeat throughout.

Visiting and experiencing onsen and sauna after a long day of cycling was one of the most luxurious trip I ever had. The Japanese food and sake was also wonderful especially having them with other fun cyclists. Our guide Eric and Soko was such a pleasure. I highly recommend this trip especially if you like climbing hills!

Wonderful route, fabulous hotels and meals, a great cultural insight into Japan. There were many positives to the tour. The choice of hotels was excellent (I loved the onsens), the route was beautiful, the bikes were high quality, and all the meals were delicious and plentiful.
