After a bit of easy street riding to get used to your motorcycle, you will be leaving Tokyo on a brief stretch of highway. First-timer to Japan, and can't read any Japanese traffic signs? No worries! We set up your navigation unit with a special set of waypoints that guide you out of the city in the easiest to understand way, using the least crowded roads.

Leaving Tokyo in the rear view mirror you will ride in a southern direction along the Tomei Express way towards the Izu Peninsula. Stop for a quick coffee at one of the expressway Service areas and continue on to Gotemba where you will ext the expressway and the fun riding begins.

The route takes you along the Ashinoko Skyline giving great views of Mt. Fuji and Lake Ashi then on to Hakone on the shores of Lake Ashi. After a brief stop to admire the view and take some photos the route travels along country roads across the peninsular to the western side where your will turn onto winding seaside roads along the coastline to your Hotel at Toi.

There are many great photo spots along the route and time permitting stop at the Toi Goldmine which is well worth a visit.

Day 6
Hida Takayama to Matsumoto
Today's ride to Matsumoto, while very picturesque, is only approx. 150km to allow some extra time to enjoy morning sightseeing in Takayama. Head along mountain roads though small villages and mountain passes, detour towards Fukuji onsen and on to the Shin Hotaka Ropeway, which is highly recommended, or continue on past Kami Kochi National park and Azuza Lake to Matsumoto Castle.

Kami Kochi is a beautiful mountain park and is highly recommended, however one needs to adjust timing to allow 3-4hrs spent there. Matsumoto Castle is also a recommended photo spot. Your Hotel is about 15minutes ride from the castle.
