Boso Peninsula - A Vibrant Spring Journey
This time, we ride south from Narita Airport for a vibrant spring ride through the Boso Peninsula. It's April, and the cherry blossom trees are in full bloom! First, we ride along Japan's second-longest river, which makes the peninsula a great place for farming, and see a festival created to pray for a good harvest. We also visit a secluded inn and try dishes made with freshly picked bamboo shoots. Our ride ends near the coast, where we learn about the unique spirit of some chic fishermen!
