It’s the Details

Building an unforgettable cycling adventure is all about the details. We strive to create an immersive journey to the best cycling regions in Japan, not just because they have been mentioned in blogs, but because they are home to incredible nature, history, roads, and culture. Join us where the locals love to explore, and experience ancient traditions, still preserved in secluded small towns. We believe that bicycle touring in Japan truly captures all the wonder, discovery, freedom, and cultural understanding that can only be gained through slow, intentional travel. Hop on the saddle for an unforgettable cycling experience with Bike Tour Japan.
