Great little video on Mountain Biking around Nozawa, Myoko and other nearby areas. As the guy says in the video once the snow melts you are left with Mountains! Japan is well known for its winter pursuits now but the Green season and Mountain biking are still pretty much undiscovered.
There is quite and underground swell of young guys in Nozawa and other parts of Japan working with local councils to build trails in ski resorts and other areas. As you can see here some of the terrain is spectacular. Coupled with the amazing food, Onsens and culture it makes for an exciting destination.
The Nagasaka Gondola in Nozawa opens next Saturday the 9th of July too and makes life a lot easier. Can jump on with your Mountain Bike and cruise down in style. It is 1500 yen for a single trip or just 3000 Yen for the whole day. Open until the 28th of August. So consider Nozawa and Japan for your next green season Mountain biking adventure…
