TRIP DESIGNERS

Our talented team of Trip Designers are the best in the world at what they do—and what they do is turn fantasies into reality. (We thought about changing their title to “Dream Weavers,” but we didn’t want to re-print all those business cards.)

Accolades

“The biking was great but the Japanese cultural experience was even better. The ryokans, the meals, and the special events (such as paper making and saki tasting) were really an excellent introduction to the culture of Japan.”

Japan’s Noto Peninsula is the perfect setting for a cultural cycling tour

Noto Hanto, the Noto Peninsula, juts out 100km into the Sea of Japan, midway down the country’s west coast, and is a one-hour flight north-west of Tokyo. It is as peaceful as Tokyo is frenetic.
