An E-Bike cycling tour of Matsue that will add to your enjoyment of the city

– Having a guide makes your trip that much more interesting –

When you travel, it’s fairly common for your trip to end with you just having gone to the spots you picked out. However, it’s often the little spur-of-the-moment side trips that end up being the most memorable part of a journey.

TRIP SPICE’s cycling event provides guests with the chance to make your trip extra special, as if you’re spending time with a friend from the area.

Our guides will introduce you to the history of Matsue Castle, of course, but also tell you about other details of the city as you visit local shops, learn about the local cuisine, and enjoy unique local scenery.

If you like history and culture, please select the Basic Course.
You will visit Matsue Castle and the surrounding castle town, which will give you glimpses of how Japan looked 400 years ago.
You will also visit local shops and enjoy sightseeing in Matsue and cycling along Lake Shinji.
At the end of your tour, you’ll get a chance to sample the tea and tea sweets food culture of Matsue as well.

If you want to sample traditional Japanese scenery, please select the Nature Course.
You will cycle from Matsue Castle to a rice paddy area, where you can speed down the paths between the fields.
The scenery is much like that of large wheat field, and this is only something you can experience on a bicycle.
Treat yourself to some goat milk gelato and enjoy your cycling adventure in Matsue’s natural surroundings.

We will use E-Bikes on this course, so feel free to sign up even if you’re not an experienced cyclist.
Enjoy an original tour of the city with your guide, and feel free to stop by any places that grab your interest!
