Outstanding service

Kenji's time abroad and varied career within Japan enables him to explain Japan in such great context and in such a personal manner. When someone said "Japan", it would invoke the image of the Wave off Kanagawa, but now I think it will will invoke an image of Kanji's smiling, enthusiastic face. The service from the tour provider before, during and after the trip was truly outstanding

I’ve traveled several times with Grasshopper, this time to Japan. Roads in Japan’s countryside are really terrific, well-paved, light traffic. The cultural interest is all around us … Grasshopper picks routes I will never forget, beautiful, sometimes almost magical. They make sure the food is great.

If you like windy and fresh ocean rides, with lots of kilometers of water and rocks and waves and stunning views; if you're fond of speedy road bike rides on excellent road surfaces; If you enjoy the look of aquamarine mountain rivers and brooks; if you love the challenges of climbing the exhausting hills which later fill you with pride of yourself that you just have made another achievement; if you find the small fishermen villages enchanting, if you find those temples and ashrams fascinating; if you feel like riding huge endless magnificent bridges and finally, in case you are a big fan of Japanese cuisine and simply can not have enough - that would be a great trip for you to make! I just did and I loved it!
