The Call of Japan: Why Riders Keep Coming Back

mq japan1When riders ask me what it's like to ride in Japan, there are a hundred images that flash through my mind.

It'll jump around through visions like this: a banked corner with perfect pavement, soothing natural hot springs, unbelievable feasts, futuristic architecture, historical, elegant temples and shrines, heavily forested, precipitous mountainsides, ultra polite and welcoming locals, and, of course, the ever congenial automated beer machines.

Japan offers every bit as good a riding experience as Europe. The roads are immaculate, curvaceous and very well constructed. There are sections of pure bliss, and with no traffic in sight you are instead surrounded solely by natural grandeur. Beyond the riding, if you take into account the profound history, the world class scenery, the exotic culinary delights, the genuine Japanese travel lodges, and accommodating locals, you have an unbeatable motorcycle travel experience. Simply put, Japan is a country with a unique culture that could not be more safe and inviting.

I have been riding throughout Japan for many years and have had the opportunity to design and lead three distinct motorcycle adventures there. Each one features its own magic. If you want shorter riding days, more cultural stops, more history, diverse accommodations and the opportunity to ride through billowing cherry blossoms, then the Japan Three Island Tour is your ticket. Hands down, this is our most popular trip, especially with couples.

If you want to experience longer riding days and see the iconic Japanese Alps and Mt. Fuji, experience fall colors, and watch the MotoGP race at the famed Twin Ring Motegi, then our Japan MotoGP Adventure is right up your alley.

For the riders who want to log longer, unimpeded riding days on empty country roads surrounded by forests, rivers and mountains, then the Hokkaido Explore Adventure would be your best choice.

Upcoming Japan Adventures

Three Island Tour 2019: April 13 - April 24

All of our rides in Japan feature natural hot springs, exotic, world-class dinners, and a variety of top-shelf accommodations ranging from secluded cabins to tradition travel lodges to comfortable hotels. All trips in Japan are all inclusive - that means all of your breakfasts and dinners are covered, as well as fuel for your motorcycle. All you have to pay for along the way is whatever souvenirs you might want to take home with you, lunch each day, and alcohol.

Our riders love Japan, and frequently repeat so they can experience it again and again. Why? There is something here that exists nowhere else in the world. For each rider, it is something different and personal.

Come ride Japan with us and find out why this is one of the best rides of your life!
