Explore Hachimantai: E-Biking Tour

Embark on an exciting tour using the latest E-Bikes! E-bikes, or in this case electronic mountain bikes, are bicycles combining the rugged capabilities of a mountain bike with a high-performance electric motor to provide motive assistance. The result is that even the roughest terrain becomes a breeze to traverse, no matter what your fitness level is! That’s the beauty of E-bikes.

This tour will take you to several must-see spots around Hachimantai, all while letting you take in gorgeous views of Mt. Iwate. These include sprawling green pastures that stack up even to Hokkaido, the scenic Panorama Line road, mystical forest paths along Mt. Iwate’s slopes, the Matsukawa Gorge, the Kanazawa Shimizu spring, the Yakehashiri Lava Flow (a specially designated natural monument), and a stop for lunch in Hachimantai’s hidden eatery in the woods, Mori-no-Italian. Your guide, certified by the Professional Mountain Bike Instructor Association, will be there to support you every step of the way.

Whether it’s in the viridian green of June or the autumn gradients of October, you’ll have a great time.

※Due to limitations on available bike sizes, all participants must be at least 150cm in height.

※No experience with mountain biking is necessary, and participants of all fitness levels may apply.
