Oversikt

From world-class sushi to legendary geisha, enthralling Japan is the perfect country to see by bicycle and on our cycling adventure we see all sides of this fascinating country. Cycling means that everything is slower and up close in Japan which is the perfect way to interact with the locals as well as savour the unique culture of the land of the Rising Sun. From the frenetic chaos of Tokyo to cultural Kyoto and the beauty of the serene Noto Peninsula countryside this cycling adventure has it all.

Osaka

Konnichiwa! Welcome to Osaka. This adventure begins with a welcome meeting at 6pm today. You can arrive at any time during the day as there are no activities planned until this important meeting. Please check with hotel reception or look at the reception noticeboard for where and when the meeting will take place. If you're going to be late, please inform the hotel reception. We'll be collecting your insurance details and next of kin information at this meeting, so please ensure you have all these details to provide to your leader. Notes: If you can't arrange a flight that will have you arrive at the hotel in time for the meeting, you may wish to arrive a day early so you're able to attend. We'll be happy to book additional accommodation for you (subject to availability). After meet the group at the welcome meeting, head out on an evening orientation walk and the chance to sample different street food along the way. Eat and drink on the street in warmer months and chat to boisterous locals - young and old - enjoying a beer and raw squid. If you are arriving early try and catch a baseball game, visit the exquisite Osaka castle or simply shop 'til you drop. Riding distance: None

Kyoto

We rise early and cycle from Osaka to Kyoto (approx. 45kms) Our first ride treats us to some amazing scenery, from the heaving industrial areas to quiet pockets of calm, while getting the hang of cycling in Japan. A highlight of today’s ride is a cycle through the renowned Osaka Castle Park. Opened in 1931 and covering over 100 hectares, Osaka Castle Park is a peaceful oasis in the middle of this bustling city, adorned with cherry trees and the beautifully colourful leaves of autumn and a beautiful place to ride a bike. We will also ride past by the magnificently restored Osaka Castle. Surrounded by wide moats and imposing stone walls (some 12kms long and 20m high), the castle is one of Japan's most famous landmarks. The ride today will be gentle, with only slight elevation on the roads as we head from our ryokan along dedicated bicycle paths and small paved roads besides the meandering Yodogawa and Katsuragawa rivers. Leaving Osaka behind we cycle into the heart of Kyoto itself. Riding distance: Approx. 45 kms

Nara

Ride from Kyoto to Nara to see the Giant Buddha housed in the largest wooden structure on the planet. The cycling route takes the group on a dedicated riverside cycling path from the old capital of Kyoto to the even older capital of Nara. This city is well-known for its Todaiji Temple and its cute, free-roaming wild deer. Head south along the river for most of the day, passing more community gardens, parks, and an ancient wooden footbridge. This morning we’ll stop for tea and snacks at Nagarebashi Bridge, a 356 metre wooden bridge that is over 100 years old and one of the longest wooden bridges in Japan. This particular bridge is a popular film location for samurai dramas — the popular TV series “Hissatsu” (Assasins) was filmed here. Return by train to Kyoto where we stay tonight. The total riding distance today is 65 kilometres along flat paths and gentle slopes.

Kanazawa

Enjoy some more UNESCO World-Heritage sites in Kyoto – such as its various gardens, temples, and shrines – or jump back on the bike for some self-guided discovery of this great old city before the train ride to Kanazawa. This city in central Japan is known for its well-preserved Edo Period districts, art museums and regional handicrafts. On arrival, get to know the streets on a walking tour and learn more of the history of this important city. Ask your leader for some great local restaurant options. Riding distance: None

Noto Peninsula

Over the next three days, discover the heart of the rustic Noto Peninsula and its rugged coastlines, rice paddies, and endless farmland. Highlights, along with the cycling, including visiting asaichi (morning markets) housing everything from lacquerware and sake to fresh fish and vegetables. Ride along the scenic coast to Myojoji Temple for an introduction to Japanese Zen Buddhism. Explore the quiet coastal roads and spectacular ocean views and ride back in time through sleepy fishing villages and past lush forests. Stop for a local lunch and head to the hot spring town of Wakura Onsen to indulge in a taste of Japan’s signature suki yaki with famous Noto Gyu (beef) as the highlight. Don your traditional yukata (kimono) and enjoy dinners made from fresh, local ingredients at some of the great places we stay. Riding distance: Each day we aim to cover an average distance of 65 kilometres.

Tokyo

No trip to Japan is complete without experiencing the country's legendary train system. Swap your bike for a high speed train and see it for yourself with a train journey from Shinkansen to Tokyo. Watch the scenic landscape fly by and remember to keep an eye out for Mt Fuji – frequently shrouded in cloud but often still visible. On arrival into Japan's electric capital, hit the streets for a night time orientation walk and enjoy a skyscraper view over the city. Explore both the contemporary centre of town as well as the old streets, and feel the hum of modern life in this famous city. Riding distance: None
