Minamiboso – relaxed

Quiet roads winding through farm villages and terraced rice paddies, spectacular ocean views with seasonal flowers adding colors, and freshest seafood and farm produce. 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 the southern half of Tokyo’s neighboring Chiba prefecture, is a relatively unknown destination full of gems for cyclists. We spend two days riding along beautiful coasts and rustic farmlands in the southern Boso Peninsula on this trip. The 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.

This tour is operated by Boso Adventure Tours, our partner in Minamiboso.
