We have thirty model routes covering most of Japan to choose from and plan your trip upon. Each route is about 300 kilometers in total distance and we will prepare a customized itinerary that suits your needs and likings, in consideration of the number of days available for the tour, cycling distance per day, strenuousness of the route and so on.

We will then select a right lodging for you accordingly. Please note that we may choose a facility without checking it on-site.
