cycle japan tours

Cycle touring in Japan is extraordinary! Although more famous for its neon lit cities and busy highways, Japan's network of quiet backroads offers world class road cycling. Once you leave the bustle of the big cities, rural Japan exists as it has for centuries and exploring it by bicycle will give you an insight into this hidden world. A world of Buddhist pilgrims, soaring snow capped peaks, terraced rice paddies, ancient temples and traditional arts and crafts. A world of quiet dignity where warm hospitality evokes images of the simpler life of a long gone era.

Our first cycle tour here ran in 1985 and our current cycle Japan tours have evolved from nearly thirty years or personal cycling experiences, professional guiding and tour planning, ensuring you of the best cycling holiday this land has to offer. As Ian Mcewan said in 2008 after participating in our Shikoku ride. “You have to do this ride once in your lifetime”. Ian was right, and we look forward to you joining us to discover that cycle touring in Japan is indeed, extraordinary.
