Papersky’s Tour de Nippon project is about finding the magic of Japan’s rural districts, their inhabitants, nature, culture and food. We travel to various prefectures and ride bicycles. Traveling via bicycle allows us a clean and healthy way to explore Japan’s rural areas.

Tour de Nippon in Minami Aso

Ride through a Volcanic Paradise

Place: Minamiaso village and Takamori village, Kumamoto
Date: 2020/9/26-27

Join us on a weekend tour of Minami Aso Village and Takamori Town lying to the south of the five peaks of Mt. Aso. On day one, we visit half of the village’s water sources on foot, and take the Minamiaso Railway to get further acquainted with water at the different stations. On day two, we cycle through the fields and water sources in the caldera valley, admiring the slopes of the outer rim and craggy mountains. A taste of the ancient history of the Earth, the blessings of nature, and the warmth of the people promise to satisfy our appetite for food and life.

*Sign up will be started in July 2020.
