Well-known for it's samurai, sushi, sumo and snow, the Land of the Rising Sun is also home to amazing cycling trails and roads ... if you know where to look.
Join us for two action-packed nights in Tokyo, before catching a bullet train out to the Gunma Mountains and our high-altitude home for a week. Bring your own mountain bike and follow Adam & Ruth (former Cairns locals) on a memorable tour of their backyard.
Marvel at mountain-top vistas, glaciers, hidden lakes and waterfalls, quiet scenic trails, skifields (hopefully void of snow), ancient temples and shrines. Explore by day, then relax and enjoy the peace and tranquility of a private lodge by night; complete with onsen (traditional Japanese hot spring) and authentic Japanese cuisine.
