Japan is made for cycling! Its well-maintained roads, accommodating traffic, and a large variety of lanes, paths, and tracks are perfect for two wheels. Challenge yourself with steady uphill climbs, then be rewarded with a mountaintop view, or pedal peacefully down scenic coastal roads. With incredible scenery, precise infrastructure, and plenty of hot springs to relieve sore muscles, Japan will provide an extremely satisfying cycling experience.
Japan is renowned for its unique cuisine, and you’ll have the chance to see why on your cycling journey. Eat at our favorite local hotspots, try traditional sweets, and feast upon the flavors of Japan! Enjoy Japanese noodles and tempura, or branch out and try local specialties. Eating is often a cultural experience in Japan, and you’ll see this for yourself with a dinner served in traditional style at a Ryokan, or a monk’s breakfast in a Shukubo accommodation suited for traveling monks.
One of the rewards of visiting Japan is seeing the mix of traditions and ancient structures with modern wonders and efficient cities. Pedal to Buddhist centers on mystical mountaintops, or switch gears and check out the modern art scene in the former capital city of Kyoto! You’ll have the chance to stay in traditional Japanese accommodations such as Shukubo and Ryokan, where you sit on tatami matting and must not wear shoes and where onsen (hot springs) are available. Indulge your creativity with traditional washi papermaking before hopping on an extremely efficient train. This living dichotomy of Japan will leave a lasting impression long after your cycling trip is completed.
You take care of the cycling and we handle the rest! We’ve found the best quiet back roads, eating spots, and interesting accommodations to supplement your in-depth discovery of Japan. Our cycling routes are challenging but doable and will leave you with lasting memories and lessons! Enjoy the company of a Grasshopper guide who has the knowledge and experience to provide you with the ultimate touring experience. As always, they are looking out for your safety and comfort at all times.
