Standard 3.5-Hour Guided Tour of Hida Satoyama

This Satoyama Cycling Tour uncovers a land of beauty like nowhere else

Cycling in Japan has never been more intimate, more connected with time and place. The 3.5-Hour Guided Tour of Satoyama helps you get a feeling for the town, showcasing a well-balanced and colorful snapshot of local village life over the scenic 22 km route. It’s a relaxing contrast to city life, a unique cultural experience rivaling other Japan bike tours, and a great way to get some exercise. Here are just a few examples of great spots that you’ll get to explore on your journey.


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.

While other Japan bike tours may only show you tourist spots, we will journey beyond the guidebooks, visiting everywhere from natural havens to local gathering areas essential to town life. One of them is the local market, a colorful place where the local stories are just as good as the food. Come away with a full stomach and things to tell your family and friends.
