A wonderful experience, discovering the northern part of the Ina Valley, located between two alpine
regions. It is said that the name “Tatsuno” comes from the dragon (tatsu) that lived in a lake of the
area. Since long ago, Tatsuno has been the intersecting point of several roadways. The surrounding
areas are blessed with rich resources of water from the Yokokawa River, and tranquil mountain
scenery where locals historically foraged for firewood, wood turners and geta (traditional wooden
shoes) craftsmen lived, and farmers plowed their rice paddies. In this program, you can enjoy an
abundance of nature beneath beautiful mountain scenery, and see the lifestyles of local residents.
Along the way, you will also get off your bike and do two short treks: one to the beautiful, 50m-high,
three-level Sankyu no Taki Waterfall, through a virgin forest in the Yokokawa Gorge, and to the
nationally renowned “Snake Rock”, and the other to a spot known as “Zero Point”. The program is
lead by a Tatsuno local, Ryohei Oguchi, a round-the-world cyclist
