About JCTA cycling guides

JCTA cycling guides are local experts who know just where to take you.
Of all our advantages, this one is the greatest: each one of our cycling guides is steeped in local knowledge and intimately familiar with the unique appeal that each place has to offer. Sights and scenes that can only be seen in a particular place, food you can’t find anywhere else, and most of all, the encounters with local people that transform a trip into a uniquely memorable experience. Come experience it all with us!
JCTA cycling guides are internationally qualified professional cycling guides
All of our guides are professionals certified by both Cycling UK and the Japan Cycle Tourism Association. This is your guarantee that you will enjoy the ultimate cycling tour experience, a combination of the highest level of international expertise and the superb hospitality for which Japanese culture is legendary.
