The Nikko North Alps Tour is our highest-rated adventure, and for good reason! Explore the incredible mountain range known to be the ancient home of the founder and first shōgun of the Tokugawa shogunate of Japan, which effectively ruled Japan from the Battle of Sekigahara in 1600 until the Meiji Restoration in 1868. When you explore with BTJ, you won’t believe that this kind of magical route is located just two hours away from central Tokyo! We’ll take you on an unforgettable adventure to breathtaking mountains, grasslands, lakes, shrines, and hot springs nestled deep in the Japanese countryside.
Take in crisp clean air as you climb to the Hangetsu Observatory, with amazing views of Nantai and Lake Chuzenji below you. Each day, savor meals skillfully prepared by the region’s best chefs while enjoying local sake from the rice that was grown in the rice fields we ride through. Wrap up each day with a relaxing soak in the zen hot spring bath at our ryokan hotel.

Your BTJ guides will be ready to meet you at the exit of Tobu-Nikko Station. After introductions and bike fits, we are off into the hidden forest roads behind Nikko Historical City. Enjoy gentle slopes and traditional rice fields with dramatic mountains in the background. Then, roll into a lovely Japanese lunch before putting on your walking shoes to spend the afternoon exploring the Toshogu Shrine World Heritage Area. From here walk across the street to our hidden ryokan perched atop a hill overlooking town. When you’re ready, meet up with our guides for a beautiful traditional dinner and our first toast to a great week ahead!
