Velojim - Japan Cycling Tour 2016
About this blog
Another cycling tour of Japan with a small group this time! Starting near Narita Airport, we will work our way up to the Unesco World Heritage site of Nikko, famous for its shrines amid tranquil mountains and forests, then into Gunma Prefecture with a stop at the famous onsen town of Kusatsu Onsen and finally into the Iiyama region of Nagano - site of a former Winter Olympics and surrounded by orchards and ski resorts. Including rest day rides, we hope to cover over 700 km with 10,000 metres of elevation gain. Follow us as we ride through the gorgeous Japanese countryside!
