TOUR OVERVIEW
The Japan Heritage trip starts and ends in Kyoto. It is a bicycle trip that takes 7 days taking you through Kyoto, Nara and Takano River in Japan. Japan Heritage is a guided small group trip that includes accommodation in hotels, meals and others.

Get ready to experience authentic and historic Japan on this 7-day cycling tour of the Kansai region. Visit Kyoto's must-sees, while exploring the hidden gems in the surrounding countryside. Enjoy meals of traditional Japanese cuisine, including its world famous green tea. At night, rest your body in the hot springs at an authentic ryokan. Escape to the tranquil countryside for fantastic cycling and hiking. This guided cycle tour in Japan is perfect for first time visitors and Japan frequent travelers alike!

The adventure begins in historic Kyoto, pedaling back in time as we explore the city's must-sees and some of Japan's most valuable cultural heritage. Cycle through backstreets and into the Kyoto countryside, dotted with hidden temples and Shinto shrines in the mountains, and pass by the odd waterfall and hot spring! Spend the night at UNESCO World Heritage sight, Enryakuji temple, accessible only by cable car. Take part in the morning ceremonies before cycling into Uji- Kyoto's picturesque tea country.

Visit quaint Nara, sometimes called "mini Kyoto," but home to its own collection of fascinating historical landmarks and architecture- not to mention home to a city-roaming population of white-tailed deer! But it's not all temples, castles, and shrines- get a chance to explore Japan's culinary culture as well. Try your hand at sushi making, experience a traditional tea ceremony with leaves picked fresh from the fields, and even visit sake and whisky distilleries for an inside look into Japan's famous beverages.
