This is a route for more intermediate level cyclists and is about 23km long. You ride through the Yamizo Mountain District, which borders the prefectures of Tochigi, Fukushima and Ibaraki. You can feel the adventure as you cycle along this forest road.
On the forest road, there are little to no cars and people, therefore you can enjoy the unexplored region with minimum fuss. However, you should be careful with the thick broken branches on the road.
From JR Kurodahara station, it is easy to go on the forest road and you can fully enjoy the beautiful scenery of Satoyama (a Japanese term for the area between the foot of a mountain and flat land).
The start and end goal of your adventure is the cute, pink-coloured JR Kurodahara station.
For the daring, choose the path that even local people don’t use and you will feel the spirit of adventure.
After you go to the Yamizo road, the steep uphill path will continue after that.
You can only hear your breathing and the tweet of birds in this quiet cedar forest.
After you pass the winding road, your reward will be a picturesque scenic location.
Be at one with nature in the forest.
It is one of the best moment as a cyclist.
