Myoko-Togakushi Renzan National Park
1-day e-bike cycling & irori lunch in a historic house with a local guide
About 7 Hours
Visitors to Lake Nojiri, located in the Myoko-Togakushi Renzan National Park, are rewarded with beautiful views of Mt. Kurohime, Mt. Myoko, Mt. Madarao, and almost fifty large and small capes and coves around its circumference. This area is the site where the fossilised remains of “Naumann's elephants” were discovered - an archaeological dig that uncovered the hunting grounds of local inhabitants from 40,000 years ago. Since ancient times, the lake has been the source of the “blessing of water” to animals and farmers of the area. On this “blessing of water” e-bike tour around Nojiri, your friendly and knowledgeable local guide will take you to many sites, including irrigation canals, Japan’s first water-pumping power plant, and a shrine dedicated to water worshipping. Participants can experience the lifestyles and natural beauty of this region, as well as cooking on an irori hearth inside a traditional Japanese house.
