Hinode-machi is about 90 to 120 minutes away from Shinjuku by train and bus. Although it is a part of Tokyo, the area has a rich natural environment dotted with forests and pure streams. None of these are touristic and you can see the pristine wildness in the area. The guide who knows well the charms of the area will show you to the selected spots according to your request. You may forget yourself being in Tokyo if you cycle around in the middle of the typical rural scenery with farms and rice fields, looking at and smelling the seasonal flowers. Those who usually don't ride a bicycle can enjoy safe and comfortable cycling by using an electric motor bicycle.
