Dramatic coasts and seaside villages

Japan cycling tours

Discover the endless breathtaking landscapes, interesting local culture and delicious cuisine of Japan from the road in our fantastic cycling tours. Travelling by bicycle opens up opportunities to explore the country in ways typically unavailable on foot, and with a choice of foldable bike or full-size road bike, Oku Japan’s self-guided cycling tours of Japan allow you to become acquainted with Japan in a way that’s comfortable and convenient.

With access to some of the most beautiful and unspoiled scenery of the Noto Peninsula, explore the coast of the Japan Sea, riding from peaceful mountain roads to breathtaking coastal trails. Head to the Kansai region and cycle the circumference of Lake Biwa - the nation’s largest freshwater lake. Or use the Shimanami Kaido and its string of suspension bridges across the Seto inland sea between Hiroshima and Shikoku. Japan is a great destination for cycling, and with such a variety of scenery on offer, Oku Japan has a bicycle tour to suit every palette.
