Morning Cycling Tour in Hida-Furukawa
US$69.20
Overview

Get access to stunning landscapes off-limits to vehicles—and observe daily life in the Japanese countryside—during this scenic bicycle tour through the farming village of Hida. Tours are timed to begin in the morning, when rural Japan shakes off its slumber and springs to life. You’ll get to see traditional wooden houses, sprawling rice paddies, and rolling mountains, covering more sights in less time on your own set of wheels.

What to Expect
The tour will depart from the meetup location at the Furukawa office of local operator in Hida at 9:00 am for morning departure. You will meet with your friendly and informative guide and start the 3.5-hour biking tour to enjoy not only the beautiful scenery of Japanese countryside, but also local's lifestyle in the small village of Hida.

Ride through a graceful old town in Hida and a farming village, the beautiful Satoyama will gradually come in sight. See local vegetables lining up in a market, huge old folk houses scattered, rice fields spreading all around surrounded by mountains. It is a well-balanced tour of exercise and relaxation for you and your family; feel the daily lives of local people while biking throughout a 22 km long route.
