Go for a refreshing ride through town
Grab a bicycle with suitable gearing for climbing hills and long tours. Ride through quiet towns, rice paddies, and serene mountainous landscapes.
The courses of the Hakuba Valley run through idyllic rural landscapes. Immerse yourself in its majestic mountains, tranquil lakes and ﬂowering ﬁelds that offer beautiful scenery in all four seasons.
Select your favorite course: cycle through beautiful rice ﬁelds or climb up steep hills to distant highlands. There's something for everyone, whether you're a beginner, expert, child, or adult.
Nozawa Onsen village is acclaimed for its excellent skiing facilities, but often overlooked for its green season. The activity I would like to recommend is mountain biking. In view of its wonderful surroundings, I used a bicycle to train for the Olympic Winter Games. The charm of Nozawa Onsen Village lies in its beautiful scenery of unspoiled nature and forests as well as hot spring heritage.
