The fantastic crew at Satoyama Experience are eager to introduce you to their beloved region, culture and people. Small-group cycling tours include a friendly, English-speaking guide, mountain-bike rental and insurance. A variety of tours (including walking) cater to different levels of fitness, but all capture the spirit and scenery of Hida. Highly recommended.

The team can also connect you with some unique, traditional accommodation (for longer stays) in town and around – just ask.
