Minami Boso – Relaxed

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.

Trip Itinerary

We meet at the Highway Oasis Furari bus stop in the afternoon. It is a one and a half-hour journey from Tokyo train station by bus costing 2300yen per person (bus fare not included in the tour price). Our representative will meet you there and take you to our inn. (Dinner included)
After breakfast, you can take part in an optional loop ride to the beautiful Oyama Senmaida which are selected as one of the “100 beautiful terraced rice paddies in Japan. By mid-morning we start from our inn on quiet roads through farm villages and valleys. We stop by a 300-year old farm house for lunch. We eventually ride towards the Pacific Ocean onto a cycle path by the water. You can pedal feeling sea breeze and enjoy the sweeping ocean views. Tonight we stay at a minshuku (traditional Japanese-style guest house) in Chikura, a quaint fishing port town in the southern Boso Peninsula. We feast on freshest seafood in the evening. (Breakfast, lunch and dinner included)

We continue riding our way along the coast line on the “Flower Line” with flower farms and parks are located along the road. 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. Then we head back to our villa for the first night and finish the ride there. After showering and changing clothes, you will be accompanied by our representative to the Highway Oasis Furari where you can catch a bus for Tokyo. (Breakfast  and lunch included)
