I loved all the bike ride.. Dai was a brilliant guide and full of knowledge. The scenery was so pretty. We even stopped by the river to have a cup of tea. I never thought we would get up the steep slopes but the ebikes were amazing. So much so that we are buying ebikes of our own!

Dear Sarah, Thank you so much for sharing your memory to bike around one of the most beautiful parts of Japan. I also enjoyed the tour especially seeing beautiful autumn leaves. The e-bikes are surely amazing. I ride it almost every day but I still cannot believe the assist power to climb up hill so easily. Nice to hear that you buy one for you. You may already know that Japan has a lot of places to see. Once the pandemic settles down, please visit Japan again and have another wonderful time. Warm Regards, Dai

Wonderful trip with Dai. Very picturesque, and the e-bikes made peddling up the mountain a breeze! Dai was very friendly and informative. Also, our lunch was one of the best meals I had in Japan. Don't miss this. Thank you Dai!

Dear Canelle, Thanks for coming and posting a great a review about our rural e-bike tour. I also had a great time with you. The lunch spot is highlight of tour for everyone. Surprisingly, they always change the menu depending on fresh or seasonal ingredients. When you have another chance to visit Japan, please visit some other rural areas or come back to us! Warm Regards, Dai

Wow! This was a special activity and Daisuke was one of the best guides we've had. The e-bikes made the hills a lot easier. The meal was great and we can't wait to go back to Japan to visit again! We actually visited in October 2019, but I missed the review date.

Dear Andrew, Thank you so much for sharing your memory with us you had during your wonderful trip in Japan. That was also great time to me. The most memorable part with you was some questions about the local food. I remember it was actually hard to give you detailed explanation but I tried. Honored to introduce the way to make Japanese dishes to one of the best French chef! Time flies, and I still cannot believe you visited last year. It was a great chance to talk with you. Thanks for coming again. Warm Regards, Dai

We loved our bike ride through the countryside and it was a breeze to ride up and down the mountains with the e-bikes. Japan is an amazing country but our best memories are of the things we did in the rural areas. I have already recommended this tour to my friends and when things open up again I am sure they will enjoy it as much as we did.

Dear Natalie, Thank you so much for coming and writing a great review about the rural e-bike ride with us. I also had a great time to bike around the beautiful area with lots of interesting chats with you. I am so happy to hear that you like the countryside of Japan, more than urban areas. I was used to be a Tokyo guy as I told you but now one of country man. I am so proud of it. All of customers from abroad love it and tell me that they want to visit again. Nice chance to meet you. Definitely hope to see you again. Warm Regards, Dai
