Welcome to Japan Bike RentalsAnd welcome to Japan, arguably one of the greatest motorcycling destinations on the planet.
Japan Bike Rentals was set up in 2007 by a group of expats who share a passion for Japan and a passion for motorcycle touring. At that time, it was almost impossible for non-Japanese to rent a motorcycle in Japan, but now Japan is well and truly on the world map for motorcycle touring. Here at Japan Bike Rentals, we are working hard to provide first-class service to our valued overseas guests. You don't need to speak Japanese, and you don't need a sound knowledge of Japan's roads. We are here to make your Japan motorcycle trip run smoothly from start to finish. Japan Bike Rentals can provide you with everything you need from basic bike rentals to full-service customized guided group tours. And rest assured you'll have our full support for the duration of your trip.
Japan Bike Rentals now has two convenient pickup and drop-off locations: Tokyo and Kyoto.
We very much looking forward to seeing you soon.
Riding the elevated highway system out of Tokyo, cutting between office towers on the way and leaving the populace and frenzy of Tokyo behind, you'll soon be off the beaten track and winding along small mountain paths. Now you own the road! Take in breathtaking scenic villages, ride by farmers cultivating their crops, twist your way through bamboo forests and sculpted rice fields, motor past lakes and rivers, through valleys and over mountain passes, visit ancient temples and shrines; encountering curious and friendly Japanese along the way.
Japan, with its distinct seasons and range of climatic zones is alive with color and variety year round. SPRING - head for the Hakone region and take in spectacular views of a snowcapped Mt.Fuji, as you ride along tree-lined streets, with cherry blossom petals falling like snow. SUMMER - hop on an overnight ferry to the northern frontier of Hokkaido and discover vast landscapes, endless stretches of open road and its wealth of flora and fauna. Or ride across the country, over the highlands to the Sea of Japan and explore the close-kept secrets of Nagano.
Kyushu. Take a detour via the little known and 4th largest island of Shikoku, famous for the '100 temple pilgrimage', Scottish-like highlands and tropical Mediterranean-like coastlines. Japan's topography is as diverse as it comes.
At the end of a long day, pull into a Japanese inn and enjoy a full course Japanese meal or alternatively pitch a tent and take in the stars at one of the campsites you'll find in abundance around the country. What about a bath you ask? No need to worry. Due to the fact that Japan is highly volcanic, there are literally thousands of natural onsen (hot springs) spread across the country, many of which are centuries old and a delight to experience. (Even Japanese snow monkeys are big fans). Relax and let the medicinal properties of the water sooth your tired muscles after a long day in the saddle. Reminisce over a cup of Japanese sake and plan for another great day of riding.
