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.

Reviews

Challenging biking at times but with good van support. The food was delicious and the guide gave us the opportunity to try many different things.

What a trip... Challenging in spots, but the effort was rewarded at the end of the day with a soak in the onsen's. The scenery and shrines sublime. Our guides and support team were great. Lloyd did a fantastic job keeping us informed about the history, moving and safe. Zack had wonderful empirical knowledge on local customs, ie, each town has their own artist designing man hole covers... And Hideki was very aware of our teams needs, espcecialy the coffee, to sustain us throughout the journey.

Definitely recommend to people who like cycling, but also want to experience the visiting country. The support from Spiceroads is 1st Class. Important to pick the right trip for your level.
