Answers to some common questions about our tours.

Bike Tour


Reservations can be made up to 6 months in advance. If you want to book a tour in October, you can book it from April. Exception is a booking for next year, which is suspended until we finish reviewing the tour contents including price, service and duration in the end of year. It usually starts from the end of December.

Basically, the minimum booking number is 2 for any tours but sometimes we can accommodate it. Please let us know which date and which tour you want to join via e-mail or the contact form. Please understand that tour fee differs from the standard rate like below.

  • Maze E-Bike Tour: 34,000 JPY
  • Maze E-Bike Tour – Half: 21,000 JPY

We do not offer bike rental service that is just a self-guided tour since we want you to truly understand local culture of rural Japan.

Basically, we do not shorten the tour. But we can offer a customized tour with additional fee so please let us know before booking a tour.
