Discover the land of the rising sun!

Japan - a mix of ancient traditions with modern technology, fantasy and creativity.

We start by riding the elevated highways of Tokyo leaving the frenzy metropolis behind, heading to the peninsula of Izu and its breath-taking skyline roads, followed by a visit to Japan’s highest and most famous majestic peak: Mount Fuji. Up next is the Ise Bay, the ancient pilgrimage city of Koya and Kyoto, before we discover Himeji and its unique castle architecture. We continue riding North through the most beautiful roads like the “Mikata Five Lakes Rainbow Line” and the Chirihama Beach Driveway. Crossing the mountains of the Japanese Alps takes us to the spiritual world heritage city: Nikko.

This motorcycle tour through Japan will broaden your horizon, give you an insight into thousands of years of history and ensure a riding experience like no other!
