    What to Expect
    This tour will depart from the meetup location at the Furukawa office in Hida at 2:00 pm for afternoon departure. You will meet with your friendly and informative guide and start the 2.5 hour cycling tour to enjoy not only the beautiful Japanese countryside, but also locals' way of living in Hida region.

    Ride through a peaceful town in Hida, a farming village and the beautiful Satoyama scenery 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 such as an well-balanced tour of exercise and relaxation for you and your family; feel the daily lives of locals while biking throughout a 12 km route.

    Really enjoyed the cycle ride with our very informative guide. The bikes were excellent and it was so good to have someone show us where to go and to point out places of interest. The cup of refreshing barley tea half way through the ride was most welcome!

    Thank you for leaving your comment here. I was relieved you went back to your country safely. I was also enjoyed the day with you. You guys are really positive to ride the bikes and to understand Japanese culture. I was so happy to talk with you through the tour. The rainy season had just finished. We saw the beautiful scenery from the hill on that day. Thank you again for joining the tour. Yoshi from SATOYAMA EXPERIENCE TEAM
