After running through the downtown Shizugawa fisherman’s area,
slowly, you will be entering the beautiful satoyama.
Glowing rice fields surrounded by scenic mountains, a small stream
peacefully running along a wooden waterwheel, and farmers go into
the woods to gather sansai mountain vegetables for dinner.
In the summer evening, you will spot fireflies shining their small
yet powerful light in the dark night.
Hike up the monk’s trail of Mt. Tatsugane and experience traditional
tofu or soba making to connect with the wisdom of life from back in the day.
This is a long distance cycling plan.
