DAY 2 : Store → Nukabira → Sounkyo

It's time to get on the bikes and start riding! After a gentle warm-up on the easy-to-ride roads aiming for Karikachi Pass (known as one of the “New Eight Views of Japan” from the 1930s) you can get a panoramic view of the Tokachi Plain and feel the vastness of Hokkaido right from the start. After having lunch and driving along the mountain pass, we will stop at Lake Nukabira, an artificial lake surrounded by virgin forests. This place is famous for its “disappearing stone bridge”, due to the water level changing greatly depending on the season; when the water level is high in summer it is almost fully submerged in the lake. The scenery you see varies depending on the climate and amount of snowmelt that year, so if you can see this beautiful arch bridge, you’ll be very lucky. After your first day, enjoy a relaxing night's sleep at a hotel in the mountains.

 

DAY3 : Sounkyo → Akan hot spring

This day will start with a ropeway trip on the Sounkyo area’s mountains and some hiking to explore the astonishing beauty of the Daizetsuzan National Park. After some rest and a rich lunch, we will get back on our motorcycles and ride all the way to Ashoro in Akan-Mashu National Park. From there, we head east to reach our destination of the day, the massive Akan Lake, one of the most famous lakes in Japan. Here we will rest in stylea luxury hot spring hotel and enjoy a delicious dinner.

DAY4 : Akan → Betsukaicho → Akan

This day will be kind of a road trip, returning on a different side of the Akan Lake. We will ride on some amazing roads all the way to Tsurui-Ito Sanctuary, a natural park established to protect the local fauna, full of birds and animals of the area. Our next stop will be the Sarubo observation deck, one of the best viewpoints on Lake Toro. We will go to the nationally renowned Akkeshi Bay to enjoy some delicious oysters whilst taking in the sea views. We will then end the day back at Lake Akan and take a well-earned break by enjoying the hot springs!

DAY5 : Akan → Lake Mashu → Notsuke Penninsula → Shiretoko

On this day, we will head further east towards the sea. The first stop is Lake Kussharo, which is famous for its hot springs. This place is also said to be the model location for the worldwide hit anime movie "Your Name." If you dig a little into the sandy beach by the lake, warm hot spring water will gush out, and you can enjoy your own homemade foot sand bath. After riding a bit further and passing the beautiful deep blue Lake Mashu, you will see more long straight roads. After lunch, let's go to the tip of the Notsuke Peninsula, which is located between the Shiretoko Peninsula and the Nemuro Peninsula and extends out into the Sea of ​​Okhotsk! Enjoy the mystical atmosphere of Todowara, a landscape that truly has the feel of the remotest land. Please spend the end of this day by watching the sunset over Shiretoko and the Sea of ​​Okhotsk.

DAY6 : Shiretoko → Road to Heaven → Biei

On this day, we will head inland again. First, we will stop at the “Road to Heaven'' observatory, a popular spot among Japanese riders. From this viewpoint, you can see the sky at the end of the road that goes straight on forever. You can take photos with your bike against the backdrop of a spectacular view that will make you wonder if heaven is waiting for you at the end of this road. Once you've enjoyed the scenery, head for the Drift Ice Museum, which exhibits drift ice from the Sea of ​​Okhotsk. At the Drift Ice Experience Terrace inside the facility, you can step into a world of -15 degrees C and even touch real drift ice. The recommendation here is the floe-ice ice cream dessert made with salt from the Sea of ​​Okhotsk, so you can experience it using all five of your senses! After lunch, we will enjoy about 200km long riding to Biei where we spend the final night in with memories of this wonderful motorcycle journey.

Then we will burn some kilometers on the road all the way to Sandan Waterfalls, a triple-tiered set of beautiful falls creating an astonishing landscape. We will then move to Yubari, a city famous for the production of delicious red Japanese melon. A delicacy to be tried in so many different ways, from ice cream to sparkling soda, or simply as it is.
