About this tour

There is no better way to experience the ever-changing landscapes of Japan than on two wheels, as we pedal from the wild beaches of the Noto Peninsula to the picturesque farmlands and remote mountainous regions of Takayama and Unesco-listed Shirakawa-go. From temples, shrines and markets to hot springs and ryokans (traditional Japanese guesthouses), this trip offers excellent rural cycling without compromising on the cultural elements. No trip to Japan would be complete without a visit to Kyoto, with its Zen gardens and geisha districts, and futuristic Tokyo, sprawling, inimitably busy and extraordinary.
