About this Cycle 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.

Reviews

The Noto Peninsular is beautiful rural Japan best explored by cycling. Excellent combination of rolling terrain, stunning coastal scenery and Japanese culture.

We just arrived home yesterday after our week with Vincent and Yuko in Japan. The trip was fantastic and I want to thank both of you for a wonderful experience. Vincent was extremely professional and knowledgeable both in his cycling expertise and local knowledge of all of the hideaways and paths we never could have found without him. Despite some bumps and bruises we managed to have a truly spectacular time.
