What else you should know

If unable to cycle (due to weather, etc.), Onsen Town walking tour will be substituted. The course is approx. 8km long and involves one moderate uphill. Guiding in English and/or Japanese.

What I’ll provide

Snacks
Ice cream to eat while soaking your feet in our town's onsen footbath.
Transportation
Bicycles (crossbike type). We also have a tandem bike and trailers for children.

What to bring

Proper clothing to cycle in, appropriate for the weather.
