The tour group meets in well-connected Fukuoka, from which you'll quickly head out with a ride along the Chikugo River to an Edo-era town. After climbing up the only significant hill on this trip, there is a leisurely descent to the town of Usa, followed by a visit to a Shinto shrine dating back to 708. Now it's time to ride around the conical 731 m-high (2398 ft) Mt. Futago volcano, which has 28 ravines extending radially from its centre. Cycling around the perimeter avoids a somewhat daunting climb and provides the opportunity to explore the beaches, ports, and hidden temples in the forest. This area is also very rural and known for producing scallions, leeks, tomatoes and prized kabosu limes.

We really got to experience Japan through the bike tour by seeing the magnificent countryside, eating the local traditional food, enjoying the accommodation, and soaking in the Onsens at the end of every day. Our guides also made our tour a memorable experience. We thoroughly enjoyed ourselves.

This is a very scenic ride through the southernmost major islands. Hills and Dale's galore. Leader Eric a 20plus veteran in Japan provides a lot of cultural contexts. We have done a number of rides, this might have been the best.
