    Two routes available! Discover more about the Dōzen Caldera or water springs.
    This cycling tour is guided by a professional English-speaking guide. Feel the fresh sea breeze while riding on an E-bike (electric-assisted mountain bike) and explore Ama Town. This tour allows the participants to understand the deep connections between the natural environment of the islands and its culture and history.

The guide will provide explanations or directions while riding, and participants can ask questions anytime or simply enjoy a conversation!
