Activity Level

Technical Level


  • Awesome mountain biking experience with up to 4 rides per day from a total of 10 trail variations (2~10km in length).
  • Unique, winding trails created from ancient roads that utilize the natural landscape.
  • Lunch made from local ingredients provided at a traditional Japanese house.


Built by TRAIL CUTTER, a trail-building group that focuses on creating trails in a sustainable way with as little impact on nature as possible, this is the TRAIL CUTTER’s Main Area Course, which is one of Japan’s best mountain bike trails, containing more than 10 tracks full of TRAIL CUTTER bumps and berms. The trails are mostly downhill, but a vehicle will transport you back up top, so you can enjoy multiple rides throughout the day. With a wide variety of tracks, visitors can enjoy winding mountain trails that were once paths for the village’s ancestors, but now offer thrills and fun unmatched by other trails.

Activity Level

  • Mostly downhill trails with a few uphill sections. A vehicle will transport you to the top.
  • Guides will choose up to 4 trails that match your ability from more than 10 options, ranging from 2~10km in length.

Technical Level

  • Please refrain from locking the brakes and skidding, as this will eat away at the trail. Be aware of how you are riding and try to leave as little impact on the trail as possible. By using mainly your front brake, you can control your speed without fully locking your wheels.
