About your host

I am originally from the UK, and have lived in Okutama for eight years. I know the area’s history and culture. I have been working in the town's bike rental shop for two years. I explain routes, do guided tours with Japanese staff members, and do repairs and servicing. I am active in the community, volunteering for sports events—marathons and cycle events—and taking part in local festivals.

What we’ll do

We will meet at Okutama Station and cycle to a lake along an old road. I will introduce you to the history of the countryside and its nature and culture, which is very different from Tokyo. Along the way, we will come across old shrines, mountain villages, and wildlife. And we'll sample local food. At the lake, we will visit a small museum exhibiting historic artifacts. Then we'll return to town…
