Discover the beautiful village of Miyama by biking.

On this trip you come to know what the Japanese landscape use to be. The remote mountain village of Miyama is located 50km north of Kyoto-city, approximately 1 hour and 30 minutes away by car. Miyama-village is famous for its traditional thatched roof houses (Kayabuki). The thatched roof houses were seen in various regions in the old days in Japan. However, in recent years, most of them have disappeared. We can see group of thatched roof houses in very limited area, such as Shirakawago (World heritage sites), as well as here in Miyama.
