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.
Enjoy the culture and history of Ome with a cycle from Mitake.
Experience a zen garden, an Edo era country house, an antique hair accessory museum, temples & shrines and finally taking part in 'koso-en' traditional indigo dyeing.
