After meeting your local guide, our e-bike ecotour begins at the En-Ya Mt. Fuji Ecotours basecamp. After a quick e-Bike lesson and safety briefing, we ride for Lake Tanuki to see Mt Fuji reflected off the lake's pristine waters and also learn about local birdlife.
We then cycle through a local village called a "Satoyama" to see how life has remained largely unchanged for centuries. We pass by Jimba Falls, where we fill our bottles with fresh Mt Fuji spring water. For lunch we try fresh rainbow trout at a local trout farm.
After lunch we visit the mighty Shiraito Falls, one of Japan's most impressive waterfalls and learn of the interesting history of the falls, while taking some breathtaking photos. To finish the day, we cycle back to basecamp and enjoy locally brewed craft beer at our glamping site right in front of Mt Fuji.
