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.

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]
