Cyclist Welcome.jp is for cyclists traveling Japan, providing routes and hotel information for the featured areas.
Come meander through the sinuous mountains, winding coasts and cliffs, and experience the deep green mosses and overgrown earth of Japan. See the palette of 2,000 colors the Japa-nese language has named through the cherry blossoms, autumn foliage and subdued scener-ies. While here, encounter the quintessential hospitality, Onsen hot spring baths, and foods pre-pared thoughtfully using minimalist and fresh ingredients.

Before deciding on routes, we’d like to introduce you to our listings of luscious accommodations. We offer choices from Japanese style ryokans, luxury hotels, private lodges, and bed and breakfast cottages. After your adventure winds down for the day, we want to ensure that you can retreat to a comfortable room, delectables and caring hospitality to rejuvenate your mind and body.
While sifting through our collection of hotels, you may want to consider whether or not you plan to bring a bike with you at night. Some of our more luxurious options may have regulations to abide by. Here are some questions to ask:
-Is it possible to park my bicycle in an area that will keep it secure from rain, wind, dirt and theft?
-Is there a dress code for the hotel grounds or is it okay to enter the hotel in post-adventure cy-cling clothing?
-Can I wash my cycling kits or should I bring an extra set?
-Are there facilities available to clean and maintain bicycles?
-Is there a French style pump available for borrow?
-Can the hotel store luggage sent in advance?
