They are from Italy.They are the repeat customer.
It’s been five years since we last met.
This time we rode to Tohoku area to enjoy autumn leaves.
It was a journey through the beautifully adorned Tohoku region with autumn foliage,
staying in traditional Japanese inns that exuded the country’s rich heritage.
I indulged in delicious local cuisine and sake, savoring the flavors that the region had to offer.
Their next tour will be three islands tour.


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.

late autumn tour to Tochigi with 7members

we went on to Furumine Shrine at Kanuma city. It is known as the birthplace of Nikko and enjoyed talking and taking a walk around the beautiful Japanese garden full of the colorful leaves.
We rode a narrow and winding mountainous road and reached at Nikko.
We enjoyed lunch there and got back to Tokyo before it got dark.

Dean : Thanks for the tips Bob! Nice leading Yukiko!
Bob : Thank you Yukiko! It was a very nice ride, and everyone did very well “group”riding style!
David : Thank you Yukiko! Thanks everyone for the enjoyable ride today.
