Japan By Bike

If you're looking to dive deep into Japan's heart, forget the bullet train—grab a bike! Japan has three of the most important aspects for a perfect cycling tour: superb infrastructure, postcard-perfect scenery, and renowned courtesy. It’s no surprise that cycling tours in Japan top many bucket lists.

On our Japan cycling trips, you'll explore modern cities, marvel at cherry blossoms in spring or the amber hues of autumn, and cruise by rural scenery, from tea plantations to evergreen forests and Shinto temples. And after a rewarding day of cycling, you can recharge your body with a soak in an onsen hot spring and some incredible Japanese cuisine.

Japan isn't just a place you go; it's a place that stays with you.
