Starting from Nagoya, the tour travels via the impressive Nagoya Castle and Gujo Hachiman in Gifu Prefecture, traverses stone-paved pathways, weaves along pleasant winding autumn-rich roads, and visits the Motorcar Museum of Japan in Komatsu, Ishikawa Prefecture to enjoy the deep culture and history of Japan's manufacturing industries on the Sea of Japan coast. The roar of motorbikes give way to silence at Kanazawa's stunning Kenroku-en Japanese Gardens. The highlight of the tour is Chirihama Beach on the 'dragon-head' Noto Peninsula, which stretches 8 km along the Sea of Japan coast. It is one of the rare places in the world where riders can go off-road along the water's edge and enjoy the sunset as part of an unspoilt landscape. At Keta Shrine, visitors pray for the safety of their trip and receive power by offering a tama-kushi, a traditional ritual. Tadaya, a superb traditional inn, welcomes visitors with their warm hospitality as part of the ride along the 300 km route overlooking the sea to Wakura Onsen, a 1,200-year-old hot spring. The tour includes visits to a soy sauce and miso manufacturer, and also sake brewery, as well as a forging workshop at the Cutler Sanshu & Seki Hamono Museum, before finally concluding after a miraculous ride around the scenic mountain village of Shirakawa-go, a World Heritage Site. The journey along the Dragon Route is packed with untouched nature and cultural heritage. The wind, smells, and sunlight that only bikers can experience, and encounters with the local people as they pass by, make the trip even more colorful and moving.
