This is an e-bike tour along and across the three rivers of Hida-Osaka.  The tour will connect you with the authentic nature of Japan. Many things you will see in this town are related to the volcanic activities of Mother mountain, Mt. Ontake, and you will learn how the land of Hida-Osaka was formed after the eruption of the volcano 54,000 years ago. A visit to Gandate Park, the symbolic park of the town, is also included in this tour.

 

A 30-minute train ride from both Takayama and Gero, Hida-Osaka is a great place to get to know the Japanese land over lava flow, to feel the nature, and to experience the tranquility of wind and flowing river water.
