Welcome to our bike ride experience page! We are called Local Experience Japan http://www.localexperiencejapan.com We have been providing this spontaneous bike ride down to the local atmosphere since Spring 2018 and more than 700 guests have participated it so far. I am Hayato, the owner of Local Experience Japan and I also run a hostel (http://www.plumhostel.jp) in Odawara since 2016. I graduated from a university in New York. I would like tourists from other countries to enjoy their stay in Japan with local people. My co-host, Peta, had been a bicycle messenger for 5 years before he came back to his hometown Odawara and has enforced this tour since July 2018. He also has experienced working in New Zealand. We're knowledgeable and look forward to showing you Japanese nature and culture in real local life through this bike ride.

The tour starts at our office near Odawara Station in Odawara city, 80 kilometers(about 50miles) away from central Tokyo.

We always try to pick a best route to enjoy the local attractions from, such as Odawara Castle, a beach, a historical Japanese house.The route can be changed by the weather.
