Discover a distinct island culture born of subtropical sun, white sand, mangrove jungles and the age of the Ryukyu Kings on this 9 day/8 night cycling tour.
Japan’s southernmost prefecture, Okinawa is a chain of islands with its own history as an independent kingdom and a distinctly subtropical climate, as well as the birthplace of karate. The riding here is truly unique and different from mainland Japan, plus we will explore the ruins and restored castles of the Ryukyu kings, and visit magnificent beaches and coastlines with an amazing array of coral and undersea life. We will be riding on some roads that appear to be lost to time and not even used by the locals. There is rare flora and fauna all around, and an island mindset that makes you forget the clock and follow the sun.
We have the perfect mix of challenging, yet very enjoyable cycling, along with amazing cultural experiences only found on the main island of Okinawa, Japan.
