I was hesitant to travel because of COVID-19 but after seeing BTJ’s process and commitment to safety, I was totally reassured. Our guide knew the area very well, and was able to choose stunning routes that matched our fitness levels while dynamically making adjustments to the plan based on our preferences. Highly recommend.

Why Travel By Bicycle?

Explore off the Beaten Track

Get out of the crowded cities of Tokyo, Kyoto, Osaka, and Hiroshima. Countryside ryokans and hot-spring onsens are the perfect places to relax in luxury.

Go Outdoors

Health experts have recommended that people go outdoors during COVID-19 as a safety precaution. Cycling tours are all about enjoying wide open spaces, breathing in fresh air, and soaking in the sunshine.

Skip Public Transport & Confined Spaces

Whether you are new to bike travel or an experienced rider, we encourage you to see Japan on two wheels. It will give you the freedom to cover substantial distances while getting to know each of the places you ride through.

Deciding when and how to travel is a personal one. When you are ready to plan your adventure, let our team take care of all the details.
