Cycling through Japan is a great way to travel. You discover the country, meet new people, learn about Japanese culture, experience different landscapes and most all have a lot of fun. HIGHLIGHTS ・Put on your armour and feel like a real samurai. ・Cycle around terraced rice paddies and deserted beaches ・Soak in outdoor onsen hot springs ・Tremble when faced with mighty Mt Sakurajima vulcano ・See the sun set in the Land of the Rising Sun ・Hear the ocean crash on rugged shores ・Visit a tea farm and miso factory ・Enjoy exquisite Japanese cuisine In samurai heydays, the Satsuma domain was the power base of the Shimazu clan, a strong opponent of the Shogun far away in Edo/Tokyo. To prevent rebellion, the Shogun forbade the Shimazu’s to build castles. Instead, they invented the fumoto, fortified samurai neighbourhoods that were spread out all over the territory. The Shogun wasn’t done with Satsuma and when Edo came to an end it was to a large extent thanks to the intellectuals and warriors of Satsuma. To this day many bukeyashiki samurai residences remain in Kagoshima, the modern name for Satsuma.
