Tour de Nippon in Kyoto / Tango

, 2017/01/23

The Northern Kyoto / Tango area runs parallel to the Sea of Japan. The town of Ine features perhaps the world’s most unique seaport architecture and the Amanohashidate is one of Japan’s top natural views.

We are now taking sign ups at for Papersky’s Tour de Nippon in Kyoto / Tango. The event will take place on 3/25 (Saturday) and 3/26 (Sunday). Papersky’s Tour de Nippon project is about finding the magic of Japan’s rural districts, their inhabitants, nature, culture and food. Each ride travels to various prefectures to ride bicycles, eat local food and meet the ‘real’ people of the area. This upcoming ride will take us to ‘Seaside Kyoto’.

The area features stunning ocean views as well as many local craft foods from canned fish to vinegar. The abundance of sea makes fresh fish a daily delicacy and a boom in local farming has brought many young people to the Seaside Kyoto area.

On Saturday, Participants will have an opportunity to visit the elegant Japanese cottage hotel, Holiday Homes. We’ll also be treated to the ultimate sushi roll party, as the president of Japan’s most natural and best tasting vinegar, Fuji-su, creates rolled masterpieces with the Holiday Home’s Chef using local Kyoto ingredients. On Sunday we’ll be riding along the ocean enjoying magnificent seaside views as we climb and descend coastal roads until arriving in the small seaport town of Ine to enjoy a boat tour of the local towns bayside.
