A cycling tour of the reminders of the castle town
Take a tour of the castle town area of Matsue on an E-Bike and see what the Japan of 400 years ago looked like.
You'll of course see the famed Matsue Castle, but you'll also get to experience Matsue's food culture at local shops and try some tea and tea sweets as well.
Enjoy an original tour of the city with your guide, and feel free to stop by any places that grab your interest!
A cycling tour through a traditional Japanese rice field landscape
Rice paddies are an indispensable part of Japanese culture, and speeding down paths between fields on a bicycle as the rice paddies stretch out before you like great wheat fields is an exhilarating feeling you cannot experience any other way.
