    This is the half version of 1-Day Rural E-Bike Tour in Hida. Starting at the Hida-Hagiwara station, we will directly head for the scenic valley village: Maze Village, which is certified as one of the most beautiful villages in Japan. Same as the full day tour, we need to go up the mountain road but please do not worry. We use Panasonic’s electric bikes. If you are capable of normal ones, it is also easy to handle e-bikes. The village has a lot of unspoiled views such as forests, rice fields and the crystal river called Maze River: the highlight of tour. 2 options are available, starting from 9:00am and 1:30pm. If you visit Takayama to see the beauty of nature in the rural Japan, this tour must be the best option for you.

I loved all the bike ride.. Dai was a brilliant guide and full of knowledge. The scenery was so pretty. We even stopped by the river to have a cup of tea. I never thought we would get up the steep slopes but the ebikes were amazing. So much so that we are buying ebikes of

Dear Sarah, Thank you so much for sharing your memory to bike around one of the most beautiful parts of Japan. I also enjoyed the tour especially seeing beautiful autumn leaves. The e-bikes are surely amazing. I ride it almost every day but I still cannot believe the assist power to climb up hill so easily. Nice to hear that you buy one for you. You may already know that Japan has a lot of places to see. Once the pandemic settles down, please visit Japan again and have another wonderful time. Warm Regards, Dai

An amazing experience from start to finish. Dai was there to welcome us and go through the e- bikes with us. They were so easy to use. The scenery was stunning and hardly any cars. Being up in the mountains and then biking through small villages is something you would not

Dear Karen, Thank you so much for coming and sharing your memory with us last year. Absolutely, it was an amazing day and I also had a great time with your family. My opinion is that we should go around hidden part of area , not only major spots. It must be a great chance to know more about the lifestyle in a different culture. Plus, it would be much better if we have a local interpreter. So I am proud of this job to show travelers around the area. Great to hear that you liked the whole part of Japan. It was nice seeing you, hope we will meet again in the near future. Warm Regards, Dai

Dear Hanisha, Thank you so much for writing a wonderful review about the e-bike ride around the mountainous village around Takayama. I was a little nervous about the weather but we were lucky and got a ride finally. I have developing this e-bike tour since I started it. Especially, this kind of tour held in non-touristy countryside area should be special and different. Then, I include cultural story, beautiful spot and local food. You do know each season has its own feature. The scenery will be dramatically changed. As you mention, you should come back in summer. Hope you are staying safe and will see you again one day. Warm Regards, Dai

The e-bike tour to Maze was an amazing way to see two rural villages separated by mountains in the Hida region!! The electrical assistance on the bikes made cycling up and down the mountains effortless and meant we could really enjoy the stunning view points our brilliant tour

Dear Liria, Thanks for your time to write the fantastic review on the half day e-bike ride. I also had a really good time with you despite unsettled weather with a little rain. You seemed to love the Panasonic e-bike assisting us a lot to get to the scenic valley village. It was my pleasure to serve some coffee and tea at the secret river beach. I would like to appreciate your kindness to promote the experience to anyone looking for a beauty of nature. Hope you will come back to Japan one day and explore our country more! Warm Regards, Dai

It was a cold morning, but Dai was there to welcome us at the station. The e-bikes were easy to use and welcomed given the climb up over the mountain range to the little village of Maze. Dai stopped regularly to give us information and was passionate about the region. The

Dear Fiona, Thanks for coming and writing a great review on our e-bike experience. Yes, it was a really cold morning but I also enjoyed the tour with you. All of guests loved the Panasonic e-bike since everyone can go cycling with it even on the long hill as you mention. The uphill to the valley village is not so easy to go up but no problem with the cool machine. Glad to hear that you enjoyed the time at the crystal river beach. That is my best spot in the village to have a cozy time. Thank you so much for your kindness. Hope to see you again one day. Warm Regards, Daisuke
