SpiceRoads adds Japan’s beautiful southern island, Kyushu, to its destination list
(TRAVPR.COM) THAILAND - February 17th, 2017 - SpiceRoads Cycle Tours is excited to announce a new 6-day/5-night tour in Japan: “Kyushu Onsen to Onsen.” A fantastic ride from Fukuoka to the Kunisaki Peninsula, this tour features plenty of onsens, rugged volcanic scenery, and cultural sites spanning hundreds of years of Japanese history.
Many overlook this remote corner of Kyushu, but those who make the journey will discover unspoilt nature alongside some of the most undisturbed pawā spotto (spiritual places) in all of Japan!
This moderate cycling tour totals 237 kms within 4 full cycling days and is suitable for all reasonably fit cyclists. Roads are all tarmac and in good condition. The tour features full vehicle support; an air-conditioned bus follows the tour for the entire journey. However, the route is point-to-point and cycling the full riding distances provides more opportunities for cultural experiences and is part of the fun of cycling Japan!
Relaxing in Ryokans, traditional Japanese inns, and hot spring resorts every night
Pondering the spiritual and subtle atmosphere of ancient Shinto shrines, including Usa-jingū, which dates back some 1200 years

Soaking in the famous hot springs of Beppu, where the multi-colored mineral water is always a surprise
