Tour de Nippon in Hamamatsu

, 2018/01/14

Hamamatsu, Shizuoka; land of abundance: fresh food is plenty and music wafts in the air as Yamaha and Kawai both call Hamamatsu home. On the table vegetable gyoza are served by the 20’s and kites line the sky by the 100’s.

We are now taking sign ups at contact@khmj.com for Papersky’s Tour de Nippon in Hamamatsu. The event will take place on 3/24 (Saturday) and 3/25 (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 Hamamatsu, Shizuoka.
***
Saturday (3/24)
Participants will enjoy exploring the city and culture of Hamamatsu City. We’ll begin the day by getting a feel of flying some of Japan’s largest kites with members of the Hamamatsu Kite flying festival. After a bit of flying it’s off to the pub to enjoy the local craft beer from the city’s newest brewery, Octagon Brewing. And of course stopping by the old Kagiya Building to check out the local cultural bookshop, Books & Prints. From there it’s off to Naru Soba to enjoy some fresh soba, live music and to roll up a few of your very own Hamamatsu Gyoza! And to keep the memory alive forever Hamamatsu-born photographer Wakagi Shingo will be taking portraits of all participants.

Sunday (3/25)
Riders will enjoy a beautiful course through the Hamamatsu countryside and along the peaceful Lake Hamanako. At one point we’ll be treated to a ferry crossing of the lake as well. And for lunch riders will be treated to the legendary Hamburger Steak restaurant, ‘Sawayaka’. In addition we’ll take mini stops to enjoy local snacks including: Tenryu Tea, Miso Manju, Shizuka Citrus, and fresh French fries using local potatoes.
