Tour de Nippon – Highlight Edition

, 2016/11/08

Papersky’s Tour de Nippon project is about finding the magic of Japan’s rural districts, their inhabitants, nature, culture and food. We travel to various prefectures and ride bicycles. Traveling via bicycle allows us a clean and healthy way to explore Japan’s rural areas.

Papersky currently runs five clubs: Bicycle, Mountain, Book, Food and Japan. Each club has a captain that is highly knowledgable and active in their field and for each of the Papersky Tour de Japan events we work with several of our captains on finding out ways we can tap into the locality of an area per their unique viewpoints.

For instance we frequently invite very talented chefs to collaborate with local farmers and designers to create a unique dinner. We also work with local craftsmen & women to design small workshops that our guests can create a handmade item such as lacquer spoon or learn the process & skill of cleaning and salting a fresh fish. The workshops are all specifically designed to coincide with the locality of the destination. Besides riding on our bicycle we also like to walk and frequently create programs to climb mountains or explore culture destinations with local people.

It is our hope that through our Tour de Nippon project we’ll be able to introduce you to a new way of looking at Japan. Papersky’s years of travel experience both within Japan and around the world give you a total emersion into a culture that is extremely difficult to access. We always travel with English speakers and if you have any questions about the tours always feel free to reach out to us with questions. We look forward to seeing you at an upcoming tour and feel free to contact us at:
