BIKING & CYCLING DESTINATIONS
"NOTHING COMPARES TO THE SIMPLE PLEASURE OF RIDING A BIKE."
John F. Kennedy
Japan's diverse landscapes challenge & reward cyclists.
Experiencing Japan slowly and deliberately from the saddle of a bicycle is the perfect way to take in the sights, tastes and sounds of this fascinating country.
Touring Japan by bicycle is a great way to take "the road less traveled" in one of the most visited countries on earth, giving you the ability to speed up, slow down, take pictures, alter your course and explore your surroundings more deeply and with a freedom you don't have when confined to trains or buses. And whatever your level or interest, Japan has a route that will lead you to where you want to go - from extended flat coastal paths to empty rural streets lined with 100-year-old homes, from bustling city streets to windy and remote climbs up to breathtaking mountain passes.
Check out some of our recommended biking and cycling routes listed below, and be sure to check back over the coming months, as we will be slowly listing more cycling options on our site. Finally, if you have any questions please do not hesitate to ask; we are here to help you got the most out of your trip to Japan (and we know that successful trips start long before the day of departure.)
