cycling

Our guided tour takes you to “Satoyama” rural areas located within the foothills of mountains surrounded by nature showing you what the Japanese landscape used to be. Explore the countryside by bike along the clearest river and cycle through the beautiful tea fields. Because of its water clarity, tea leaves grown in Odai are amazingly tasty and visiting a green tea producer is one of the highlights of the tour. You will also visit a part of the Ise route (what we call “the Paths of Prayer), one of the Kumano Kodo pilgrimage trails. Feel the coexistence between humans and nature of Odai town – a UNESCO’s biosphere reserve – located along the river road Okuise.
