What you'll do

Come cycling through Japan’s oldest capital, Asuka, which is home to many Japanese historical monuments. Asuka is known as the “Origin of Japan.” It was Japan’s first capital during the Asuka Era, which started at the end of the 6th century and lasted for over 100 years. On this tour, you will be led by Japanese Comedian and native Asukan, Saku Yanagawa, who will guide you, on bicycle, to the many local points of interest, including numerous local temples, statues, and natural beautiful Japanese landscapes. During the trip, I will also give a food tour of Asuka, and participants will be able to enjoy ice cream, tempura, Asuka rice, and local strawberries also known as “Asuka Rubies.”
