A journey over a decade in the making

In Japan, we’re treated like family; the result of over twelve years spent fostering and nurturing close relationships with the locals, learning how to provide you with a deeply authentic experience. We’ve sought out some of the most picturesque rides on offer—epic climbs and all—made effortless in the saddle of your faithful e-bike. You’ll hardly break a sweat as you take in sublime views of the Noto, but don’t worry: the owner of our ryokan will still have a glass of sake waiting for you when you get back.

Activity Level What’s Included Gear Extend Your Trip

Recreational

The daily distances range from 25-50+ km (16-31 mi.) with longer options on several days. Most rides have several climbs of 2-4 km, some gradual and some steep, but the B&R van will be there should you need a little boost. The routes have very little traffic as we often travel on roads not frequented by the local population. Road quality is excellent. Of our trips outside Europe, this one offers some of the purest and most beautiful biking—all made easy by your e-bike.

The Traveller

“I ride my bike once or twice a month and am comfortable on two wheels.”

The Terrain

Relatively flat but will include inclines and the occasional climb or two.

Trek Verve+ E-Bike

trip pool Sometimes your B&R trip simply isn’t long enough! Extend your stay for the best vacation possible. If you wish to spend a few days in region either before or after your official B&R trip, and need assistance making those plans, your B&R Travel Advisor can help.

Call us to create an independent travel experience that fits your needs—we can also arrange for a local guide.

Spend more time in Japan

We highly recommend that you arrive in Tokyo 2-3 days before your trip begins. This is a city of contrasts, where one minute you are being pushed along with a sea of people on one of the frenetic main streets to the next minute where you are strolling along the tranquil small backstreets. You should also plan to spend 2-3 days in Kyoto exploring its many temples, gardens, and teahouses.
