    Stop At: UMESEKO TOUR, 1-65 Oshinmachi, Takayama 506-0851 Gifu Prefecture

    This is a private e-bike tour held at the less travelled part of Takayama, heading for the hidden valley village to see lots of scenic views and taste the authentic Japanese cuisine made with only local produce. The tour starts from JR Hida-Hagiwara station. After some instructions, you will cycle around the historical town first. You need to go up the hill to visit the beautiful valley village but do not worry about it. E-bikes we will offer you are the special machines, so easy to use and make steep hills seem flat! At some points during the tour, you will take super nice pictures in the countryside and hear a lot of local stories such as history, culture and lifestyle that you would never know without a guide. The tour highlight is lunch time combined with a farm experience. You will visit a local farm to get ingredients for your lunch, then the local ryokan magically serves the kaiseki (traditional multi-course Japanese meal), which will surpass anything else you had in Japan. Through 7.5h-28km leisurely cycling, local farm experience and the luxurious lunch, you will enjoy the authentic rural Japan to your heart's content.

    Dear Amy, First of all, thanks a million for choosing us to celebrate your son's 16th birthday. I was surely honored to be a tour guide on the special day for your family. You kindly understood our situation to cancel the original bike trip, then agreed with our alternative plan. That was actually a shame for both of us but we just would like to appreciate your generosity. We had a really good time in the peaceful countryside of Japan. I am so glad to hear that you loved some small foodie experience at the local shops. It was truly a special chance to see aspects of the real daily life in Japan, just staying away from major tourist spots. The meal you had in the ryokan was absolutely wonderful as always since it was beautifully decorated and made with only local produce in the valley village. We are also proud of the ryokan and happy to invite foreign guests to taste the real kaiseki meal. It was just a one day experience but I will never forget it because of you. Fantastic day for me too with the beautiful family. Thank you so much for your kindness again. Hope you will come back to Japan and visit us! See you again! Warm Regards, Daisuke
