Holiday Information

Much more than just a cycling trip, this is an opportunity to really experience Japanese culture and meet people ready to share their wonderful cuisine and traditions.
Our tour starts with an e-bike exploration of Tokyo before we head to the stunning Fuji Five Lakes and Lake Kawaguchi. The iconic Mt Fuji provides a stunning back-drop to our rides.
Following time soaking in the onsens of Shuzenji we swap our bikes for the Bullet Train and connect to Omihachiman. From here we visit the impressive Hikone Castle as our cycling winds its way around the Lake Biwa taking in the delightful traditional villages along the way.
The final day’s ride sees us reaching Kyoto where you will experience the contrast of traditional and modern Japan. Here we visit temples with immaculate gardens and explore the back streets of this 1200 year old city.
Accommodation is of a high standard throughout and varies from modern hotels to comfortable and traditional minshuku and ryokan. There is nothing better than ending your riding day by soaking in a wonderfully relaxing onsen / bath which are often part of these accommodations.
Food plays an integral part of Japanese life so be prepared for some truly delicious cuisine along the way. For the adventurous there is a new food adventure around each and every corner.
