Shimanami & Hyogo cycling tour

Taste of Japan (SAMURAI SPORTS MARKETING) & RIDAS Corporation’ original inbound long tour. After the interruption caused by the Corona disaster, we were able to hold this year’s tour following last year’s!

This time, in addition to the Shimanami Kaido, a new route from Harima & Tanba to Kyoto has been set up with the participation of cycling operators from Hyogo Prefecture, who have always been of assistance to Lidas, with destinations including Imabari, Himeji Castle, Takeda Castle, Sasayama Castle, and Nijo Castle in Kyoto. The tour, called the ‘Five Castles Tour’, took 12 guests from the USA on a 10-day journey.

Lydas contributed guide work and safety management, bike rental operations, mechanical support, photography, and almost all the equipment, including rental bikes, support vehicles, tools, AEDs and digital radios. It was quite a lot of stuff.

To the local operators, we are grateful to have worked with you for the last three years on the grantmaking. We look forward to working with you again on the RIDAS cycling tour!
