Get out into the countryside on a bike tour through the Hida farmlands.

For those who wish to really delve into the pretty countryside around Takayama, InsideJapan can arrange a guided cycle ride taking you through the ride fields and rural farming villages of the Hida district. As well as rural scenery, the tour also visits a natural spring, a local temple, minka (traditional wood farmhouses) and an orchard. In total you will be cycling a distance of 22km and you will get a real insight into the country way of life, hopefully meeting a few Hida residents along the way.
