Oversikt

From Tokyo to Kyoto, enjoy a­­ road-based bike tour in the Land of the Rising Sun ­­

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.

Food
All breakfasts and five dinners are included. Japanese cuisine is usually one of the main highlights of any trip to Japan. It is based on rice with miso soup and other dishes usually prepared with seasonal ingredients. Seafood is very common, usually grilled or deep fried. Sushi and sashimi aside, other staple dishes include soba or udon noodles, sukiyaki (meat, fish and vegetables cooked in broth) and yakiniku (grilled meat). The included dinners are usually taken at ryokans (traditional guesthouses), which will serve a kaiseki-style dinner, a multi-course meal including a dozen tiny dishes prepared with locally sourced seasonal ingredients. When food is not included, your leader can recommend the best local eateries and arrange some group meals for a full immersion in the varied and excellent cuisine of Japan. Please note, the availability of certain specialised products for restricted diets, eg gluten-free, vegetarian or vegan, is minimal or non-existent in Japan. The group meals arranged by the tour leader will be in traditional eateries where the choices of vegan dishes may be limited to simple salads or boiled rice; however, there are several vegan restaurants in Kyoto and Tokyo. You may also find it beneficial to bring cycling snacks with you from home if you have high-energy bars or gels you like to use during a ride. For those who wish to contribute, a kitty is normally arranged and will be used to provide snacks and drinks during the rides.
Weather

Japan has four very distinct seasons, although weather patterns vary across the island. Our aim has been to avoid the extremely cold winters and humid summers and settle for the more pleasant climates of spring and autumn, which are more comfortable for cycling. Temperatures in March, April and November will be around 14C-17C (57F-63F) during the daytime and 7C-10C (45F-50F) at night. May, June and October are usually milder with temperatures ranging from 14C (57F) at night up to 27C (81F) during the day, although the likelihood of rain is higher during these months.

It is important to be prepared by packing warm clothing and layers for cold weather (especially for the March and November departures) in the interior in the region of Shirakawa and Takayama.

Is this trip for you?

This trip is classified as Road and Activity Level 4 (Moderate/Challenging).

Nine days of cycling

Average 37mi (60km) per day

Partial vehicle support (with limited seats)

We cycle more than 310mi (500km) over nine days with an average of 37mi (60km) per day, so a good level of fitness is required. We cycle mostly on surfaced roads with a few sections on country lanes, cycle paths and gravel. The routes are mainly undulating but they get hillier on the inland section to Takayama and Shirakawa-go, where we face some steady climbs. A support vehicle (with limited seats) accompanies us throughout, except for the city bike tours in Kanazawa and Kyoto.

Routes follow mainly quiet backroads with low levels of traffic, but this does increase when approaching towns. We aim to cycle most of the route door-to-door, with only a few transfers and train rides organised to shorten some distances and avoid busier roads. Most rides will include some short sections through lit tunnels.

This trip is great for a first-time visit to Japan as it encompasses the varying aspects of the destination, from the serenity and history of Kyoto to modern Tokyo.

Some nights are spent in traditional rural accommodation and guesthouses with shared facilities.

Please be advised, bike hire is included and there is no option to bring your own bike on this trip.
