Point to be noted

Cycling is a dangerous sports
By nature of outdoor activities, we cannot avoid all the risks involved itself. Cycling is relatively high risk sports as its field is on open road with other traffics. You need to have strong sense of responsibility of securing guest’s safety and life with sensible action.

Liability insurance
We have travel and liability insurance with guests. We also have liability insurance with contracted guide that is JPY500,000,000 per case, JPY100,000,000per person. If the guide would not follow our guide’s manual, the guide should have liability for any loss.

Driving support vehicle
Most of our guided tour have support vehicle to be driven by guides. If the weather turned to be bad, you need to drive people some time. We use public transport for long distance transfer.

Participants from all over the world
We have participant from all the back ground. You need to have good communication skill and leadership to let them get along well with each other. If your team building would be successful, you will have fantastic tour and lifelong friendship.

Busy during tour
If you are on 7 days tour, you ride with guests, drive support vehicle, call the hotel to confirm booking, have meals with guests, and so many things to do during the tour. You need to concentrate on your job, you need your family and friends who can understand what you do while you are away from them.
