Fantastic trip away from the cities up in the mountains. Lots of curvy roads, and experiences that the typical tourist will not get to see. I was going to go solo while my wife was at a conference in Yokohama, but Fun Ride was able to find another couple from Australia to go along on the same schedule. This made a terrific ride even better!
Yukiko did a great job as our guide. Each day’s ride was just the right duration, and was capped off with a unique ryokan & onsen experience and an introduction to local cuisine. We even got to enjoy a wonderful evening street festival at our stop in Kusatsu-Machi. Yukiko was very patient with us – answering all of our questions and giving us an introduction to Japanese culture.
If you come from a country that drives on the right side of the road, I highly recommend following a guide. I would have been in big trouble 2-3 times each day if left to follow my right-hand instincts!
If I’m ever able to return, I would definitely take another tour with Fun Ride Japan.
