THE ZEN EXPERIENCE

This tour is specifically designed to show off the best road cycling and traditional culture of Japan’s North Alps from one central location. Unpack your bags and set off on a week of adventures covering the amazing hills, mountains, lakes, and shrines of this region… all while building excellent base miles and conquering spectacular climbs! Climb to the top of ancient volcanoes, ride around hidden lakes, and pace through valleys on undiscovered roads in Japan’s North Alps.

Find true zen and serenity as you ride on car-free roads, walk through ancient temples in the forest, and enjoy the healing powers of the onsen bath each day. You won’t believe that we are only an hour from downtown Tokyo!

TAKE YOUR MENTAL AND PHYSICAL TRAINING TO THE NEXT LEVEL

We ride on roads rarely visited by cars, explore unforgettable landscapes, and experience incredible scenery around every switchback. Additionally, your BTJ support team will be here to help you navigate and understand Japan’s traditions, from ryokans to kaiseki meals, from hot spring onsens to sacred temples. We can’t wait to share these unbelievable experiences, on and off the bike, with you this fall!

Bike Tour Japan was OUTSTANDING. The riding was incredible with beautiful Fall colors, quiet back roads and challenging climbs. The countryside is gorgeous and Rob knows how to end every day at the perfect ryokan with onsen baths and delicious food! Can’t wait to do another tour in 2018! [Tour of the North Alps 2017]
