SpiceRoads Presents Once-a-Month Tour in Kyushu.

February 21, 2017 in Tours by cipcipTrip

SpiceRoads Cycle Tours is excited to announce a new 6-day/5-night tour in Japan: “Kyushu Onsen to Onsen.” A fantastic ride from Fukuoka to the Kunisaki Peninsula, this tour features plenty of onsens, rugged volcanic scenery, and cultural sites spanning hundreds of years of Japanese history.

Many overlook this remote corner of Kyushu, but those who make the journey will discover unspoilt nature alongside some of the most undisturbed spiritual places in all of Japan.

The Route
This moderate cycling tour totals 237 kms within 4 full cycling days and is suitable for all reasonably fit cyclists. Roads are all tarmac and in good condition. The tour features full vehicle support; an air-conditioned bus follows the tour for the entire journey. However, the route is point-to-point and cycling the full riding distances provides more opportunities for cultural experiences and is part of the fun of cycling Japan.

Tour Highlights

Relaxing in Ryokans, traditional Japanese inns, and hot spring resorts every night

Pondering the spiritual and subtle atmosphere of ancient Shinto shrines, including Usa-jingū, which dates back some 1200 years

Circumnavigating 720 m-tall Mount Futago and its many picturesque ravines

Taking in the fabulous sea views while cycling the bright blue coast of the Kunisaki Penninsula

Discovering Kitsuki, often referred to as “little Kyoto” of Kyushu Island and home to Kitsuki Castle, the smallest in Japan

Soaking in the famous hot springs of Beppu, where the multi-colored mineral water is always a surprise
