Jun was an excellent guide and very kind. The trip is exactly as described in here and from other reviewers too. I would do this again!
Love the weather and the local Onsen experience. Jun picked us up in the hotel at 9AM and we hopped into his van to the mountain area for around 45 minutes. When we reached, he assembled the bikes and we got to try them first to fit. We got to bike in the woods around 10 minutes, the rest is in the side of the road. It's quite an experience. Then he would take us to a local snack place to taste the red bean Japanese snack and cold drinks. The Onsen was wonderful as it had an outdoor onset with beautiful natural view. The curry lunch we had was great, cooked by a local Indian guys who spoke fluent Japanese. A great tour to spend for half day.
We are so glad that we did this bike tour. The guides, Jun and Hiro, were great and so patient with our group of 8. The scenery was fantastic and we enjoyed the onsen and the yummy Indian curry and naan bread at the end. I would highly recommend this tour. In fact, we want to stay in Jozankei the next time we are in Sapporo.
Wonderful trip. The bikes were first class, the scenery fantastic and the guide facilitated a great experience. We loved the meal and the onsen experience. Thanks Juun
Great experience! Tour is exactly as described, it is a pretty leisurely bike ride (1.5 hours) through some dirt roads, but mainly paved areas. It follows the river in the area which is beautiful! It also includes a short stop at the Jozankei onsen statue area with a small snack. The Hoheikyo onsen is like most onsens I've been to and is a bit more "country" then most modern, new sleek ones. The calcified water has created a super awesome floor in the onsen itself. Finally, the included lunch was top notch Indian curry vegetable and chicken with a piece of naan bread!
