This is a cycling tour where you can run off-road and on-road, feel the change of seasons, and run through Nikko, a little-known spot that is not listed in guidebooks.
You will bike through the bustling town of Nikko and through the World Heritage area, feeling the wind of the mountains and the murmuring of the river.
If you run a little actively off-road along the Oyagawa riverbed, you will come across the old Nikko Suginamiki road, lined with cedar trees that are over 300 years old.
While watching the long passage of time since the Edo period, the ancient roads rooted in this land will tell us something. It would be nice to park your bicycle, stop by a clear stream, lie down in a field and look at the sky.
Let’s take a look at the surrounding nature as well as the historic buildings.
The real pleasure of this tour is to take pictures of the majestic Nikko mountain range and the trees that change color depending on the season.
