Following a bike fitting and safety briefing, it is time to start pedalling. Begin with a ride through town, pedalling around the quiet streets and along the banks of the Seto River. Stop to take a closer look at Hida's machiya houses, Japanese traditional dwellings built centuries ago.
Then cross into a countryside region called Hida-Furukawa and ride along quiet trails surrounded by rice fields and farms. Observe scenes of rural life such as farmers ploughing their crops. Alongside the guide, learn a bit about what life is like for locals living in Hida's rural regions. There are also plenty of chances to take photos of the Alps and the small villages that dot the landscape.
After this half day tour of the Alpine countryside, loop back into Hida's town centre. Drop off the bikes and say farewell to the guide, returning by train to Takayama or spending more time exploring charming Hida.
