What you'll do

We also provide Sake brewery tour(Check link below) https://www.airbnb.jp/experiences/496644?source=wl If the schedule doesn't match you, please feel free to let us know. We are always happy to be flexible about changing starting time, date and so on! Let's take a bike ride with us and see the local spots where you would never reach without the local guide. The bike tour is organized with my co-host Peta, an ex-bicycle messenger, we both speak English fluently.We provide you a sports-hybrid bike and the instruction about the bike before the tour. Even if you are not an experienced rider, you can enjoy this relaxing bike ride! This tour normally goes around 25 to 30kilometers in 4.5 hours.The ride is on relaxing pace with some breaks. We start cycling in a city called Odawara which is located under the beautiful view of Mt.Fuji. Despite the city is just 30 minutes away from Tokyo by Shinkansen the bullet train, it features the historical constructions and the nature of typical Japanese country side such a Japanese-styled old house surrounded by rice field. We really want to share the local history and nature with you!

Welcome to our bike ride experience page! We are called Local Experience Japan http://www.localexperiencejapan.com We have been providing this spontaneous bike ride down to the local atmosphere since Spring 2018 and more than 700 guests have participated it so far. I am Hayato, the owner of Local Experience Japan and I also run a hostel (http://www.plumhostel.jp) in Odawara since 2016. I graduated from a university in New York. I would like tourists from other countries to enjoy their stay in Japan with local people. My co-host, Peta, had been a bicycle messenger for 5 years before he came back to his hometown Odawara and has enforced this tour since July 2018. He also has experienced working in New Zealand. We're knowledgeable and look forward to showing you Japanese nature and culture in real local life through this bike ride.

Where you'll be

The tour starts at our office near Odawara Station in Odawara city, 80 kilometers(about 50miles) away from central Tokyo. We enjoy cycling alongside the Sakawa River, appreciating the view of Mount Fuji on sunny day and local nature, such as the flowers and rice fields. We always try to pick a best route to enjoy the local attractions from, such as Odawara Castle, a beach, a historical Japanese house.The route can be changed by the weather.
