Tokyo to Kiso

Day 1

Motorcycle ride out of Tokyo ninjatours japan motorcycle tour
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.
Japan motorcycle ride out of tokyo to kiso
Your first day of riding includes an easy trip out of the city heading south, past Mt. Fuji, and into the Southern Alps and Lake Suwa, where you can enjoy a brief coffee break. Continue on to Ina. From Ina you will head into the Kiso Mountain area and some fun roads.
Just to add a little spice to your ride, my favorite route is along the old Ohira Highway which is a very narrow twisty winding road through the mountains. The road surface is good and it is just long enough to be fun without being too taxing. An alternate option is available if you want a more conservative ride.

Japan motorcycle tour Tsumago Juku
Either option eventually leads you to Tsumago Juku, a working historic village tucked in the Kiso mountains. You can easily spend an hour or so wandering around here and your hotel is a 15 minute ride away. The hotel is tucked away in a small valley deep in the mountains. It's very quiet and a place that most people would never find!

Day 2

Kiso to Hirayu Onsen

Some of my favorite cruising roads await today as the route starts with a nice and windy road past Mt.Ontake and into the Southern Alps towards Takayama.

"This is Japan? The rolling hills, lush green forests and beautiful colors around Mt. Ontake were amazing…a real hidden gem of a place."

Takayama's old town area is well worth a visit, and some of the shops and restaurants seem to be hundreds of years old, because they are!

Enjoy the early afternoon here, and take in the charm of the traditional shops and cafes.

If the weather is nice we highly recommend a stop at the Shin Hotaka ropeway, which will give you a great vantage point of the Japan Alps. You will be sure to enjoy the memorable scenery, and it's just a short diversion from your course.

"Japanese taste" is noticeable here and there, such as the flowers, lights, and pictures casually displayed in the halls. The owner shares his love of classic audio by the calming music in every room."

Matsumoto to Tokyo

Day 4

Leaving your hotel in Matsumoto, you will drive into the mountains and up to Lake Misuzu. Admire the view and continue along the Utsukushigahara Skyline.

Turn onto the famous Venus Line, which is a great mountain road with some outstanding scenery.
Take a brief stop at the Utsukushigahara rest area, which is at 2000m elevation, for a quick coffee and some great photos. Continuing along the Venus Line you will wind your way down to Mt. Kirigamine and on to Lake Suwa. This really is a great ride and you are sure to remember it.
