Hida Satoyama Cycling / Guided Tour / Regular
Afternoon Group Half 2.5-Hour Guided Tour of Hida Furukawa

A guided bike tour through the attractions of SATOYAMA

From the graceful town of Hida Furukawa, all the way to a rustic farming village, this totally flat, two and a half-hour long guided bike tour is perfect for beginning cyclists and those with families. We pedal around Satoyama and spread out into the outskirts just outside of town, eventually reaching a spring/well from which local people draw water.


Our journey will take us through fields, a shrine and other areas highlighting the deep culture of the town and its people. Keep an eye out for details big and small, each important to a lifestyle seldom seen anywhere else. After an easy and refreshing ride, there is nothing left to do but relax! Here are just a few highlights:


Rice plants are an essential part of Satoyama’s landscape and one of this tour’s most charming attractions–you can learn how rice grows in Japan and later, reap the benefits of the harvest with a hearty meal. During the tour, take the opportunity to visit a local market where local vegetables and other products are sold.

Summer season

There is a high risk of thunderstorms developing on mid-summer afternoons (especially in July and August) when temperatures climb over 30 degrees Celsius. Please understand that cycling tours may be substituted by walking tours for safety reasons if thunder or lightning are observed. The risk of thunderstorms is generally lower in the mornings.
