Join RideJapan on the Izu Peninsula Cycling Tour. The stunning Izu Peninsula (伊豆半島, Izu Hantō) is an area popular for its hot springs, beautiful coastlines, beaches, mild climate and scenic mountainous interior. Additionally, being located only about 100 kilometers southwest of Tokyo, it makes the region a popular weekend getaway. It is easy to access by several trains and what makes a trip to the region worthwhile is its easy access to Mount Fuji, which lies only about 50 kilometers to the north and can be viewed from the peninsula’s western coast.

We meet in Atami, a short journey from Tokyo for our journey down the east side of the peninsula. Hugging the coast as we pass Ito and Nagahama Beach Resort, the views are resplendent. Our 100km course takes us inland for a few short climbs before we arrive at our base for night in Shimoda, famed for its beaches.

Today we head up the west side of the peninsula, stopping at some incredible beaches, before heading for the hills. The roads narrow as the incline increases as we enjoy the quiet rice field terraces. One final descent and we arrive at our beatiful beachside Ryokan for a soak in the onsen and a traditional dinner.
110 km | 2500 m
Our final day takes us within views of Mount Fuji as we snake our way around the coast before heading east. The hills loom and we face a few categorized climbs that take us through the middle of Izu and the town itself. Atami is close and after a beautiful smooth descent we arrive back on the east coast and ride the last few kilometres to Atami.
