All About this Tour

Jutting out into the Sea of Japan, the remote Noto Peninsula offers a coastline of impressive seascapes to explore by bike. While the rugged Western coast rises and falls eroded as it is by wind and wave, the Eastern coast enjoys a calmer shore and stunning views of the distant Nagano alpine peaks.
