Your hosts are Masato and Shelley from Calgary, Canada.

Masato grew up in Osaka, Japan. Shelley was born in Calgary, Canada. We met through cycling in the Japanese Alps in Nagano, fell in love and moved to Canada to start a family. Cycling continued to be a theme throughout our lives together. We have enjoyed many rides with family and friends throughout western Canada and other parts of the world. Now that we have grown children, we decided to begin a new journey combining our passions, love of Japan and cycling!

Their self-guided cycling tours of Japan debut in 2024 in the Kansai region. The first route embraces the rich history of the area including the many temples and castles, stories and sites filled with stories of Samurai and Ninja’s who protected this historical area of Japan, including Nara, Kyoto and Osaka. The exciting history, and culture is complemented with delicious food which make it a great destination to visit while cycling.

These tours are self-guided so you can explore at your own pace and follow your passions. You will be provided a cycling computer with your route programed, a list of sites and food options along the way. We will be along the route and available for any emergency that may occur. We look forward to sharing our love of Japan and all it has to offer with you.

Along this journey, we look forward to supporting local business and nonprofit organizations in Canada and Japan, especially those that are like minded and support cycling. We hope that cycling will bring as much joy to those we meet and partner with as it has for us over the years.
