Historical road tour
Wasabi field & nature tour
Ome culture tour

This Edo-era trade route linked the capital (today’s Tokyo) to regions beyond its rugged western mountains. Ancient traders of charcoal, furs and rice carried their loads or led their horses and bullocks along a track that was once much narrower and more treacherous than the one we ride today. Our course to Lake Okutama holds amazing natural diversity. We also find clues, such as shrines and mountain villages, to pre-industrial lifestyles.

Do you know wasabi? It's Japan's famous horseradish used in sushi & sashimi.

Okutama has a long history growing wasabi using its clear, mineral rich streams and springs.

Combine cycling with a visit to a traditional deep-valley wasabi patch. Bring your

curiosity. An Australian wasabi grower will reveal the secrets of wasabi, introduce local flora and fauna, and offer entrancing Okutama folk tales as well.
