Jutting out into the Sea of Japan, the remote Noto Peninsula offers a coastline of impressive seascapes to explore by bike. While the rugged Western coast rises and falls, eroded as it is by wind and wave, the Eastern coast enjoys a calmer shore and stunning views of the distant Nagano alpine peaks.

A protected national park, Noto Peninsula is awash with meandering hills, perfect for those seeking an active adventure tour. Experience the magnificent sights of the bay with rocky outcrops such as the Ganmon Cave, a natural arch carved into the cliff by the tides. In Senmaida, freewheel down the hillside next to the country’s terraced rice fields as they stagger downwards to the coast. Inhale the bracing sea air at Noto Kongo, as you enjoy the peninsula’s most scenic spot.

It’s not all pedal-heavy though; unwind in the mineral hot springs to soothe sore cycling muscles. Spend the night in a thatched-roof Gassho Zukuri, one of the historical farmhouses that have survived for over 200 years, and sample traditional mountain dishes. As you head inland, wander the narrow lanes of Takayama’s old city between wooden sake breweries and charming boutiques. And bike the cherry-blossom paths along the Oyabe River, for a Japanese experience you won’t forget.
