On this cycle tour in Japan's southern island on Kyushu, the idiosyncrasies of Japan reveal themselves as our trip takes us from Kagoshima to historic Nagasaki. Cycle along coastal roads where we will pass tiny harbors and fantastic rock formations, terraced rice paddies and palm trees as well as ancient temples and shrines. Starting from Mt Sakurajima volcano; at its foot lies Kagoshima, only separated from the ash spewing giant by narrow Kinko Bay. Magnificent views on Mt Sakurajima colour our cycling days, interrupted by one soak in the unique Furusato temple onsen. In Izumi we flush down the hearty farmer's meal with shochu, southern Kyushu's typical sweet potato brew. We discover where those old Christians have been hiding on Amakusa island. After seeing the incredible blue green waters you might want to stop at a beach for a dip. The tour ends in Madame Butterfly's Nagasaki.

We have timed the tours to try and catch the cherry blossoms in the spring and the colourful leaves in the fall.
