Guided cycling tour to feel daily lives

This is the most popular guided tour of feeling daily lives in Hida. In the scenery you will see while cycling, people keep a way of living inherited for generations, which we would like to convey. By cycling at a slow pace, you can feel a seasonal beauty of a farming village. In addition, an experienced guide will thoroughly show you the area and explain the culture and history in satoyama. The bicycles we prepare are Louis Garneau and the model is LGS-FIVE. When you run through rice fields by a vivid colored bicycle, you will no doubt rediscover a beauty of Japan.
