Quiet roads winding through farm villages and terraced rice paddies, spectacular ocean views with seasonal flowers adding colors, freshest seafood and farm produces – how far do we have to travel away from Tokyo for a bike trip to enjoy them? Surprisingly, the place is only one and a half-hour bus ride away from Tokyo station. Boso Peninsula which comprises southern half of Tokyo’s neighboring prefecture of Chiba is a relatively unknown destination that is full of gems for cyclists. On this trip, we spend two days riding along beautiful coasts and rustic farmlands in the southern Boso Peninsula. Terrain is mostly flat or gently undulating, and is suitable for guests who enjoy relaxed rides. This tour is ideal if you are looking for a short getaway from Tokyo to immerse yourself in the Japanese countryside with stunning natural and rural sceneries and excellent local food.
Note: Accommodations used for this trip have shared bathrooms only.

Once we reach the southern tip of the peninsula near the Nojima-zaki Lighthouse, we say goodbye to the ocean for now and head inland towards north. We pedal through farmlands on gently undulating hills, and stop by a charming Buddhist temple nestled on a quiet hill for lunch.
