This route is quite flat so you can even use a rented bike and it is full of attractions along the way. Start from the Hakuba Sanosaka Tourism Association, drop in at Michino-eki Hakuba, and take the single road through fields, which should be refreshing. The road is pretty wide so you should feel at ease riding. Pass the historic Shimmeisha Shrine and Olympic Memorial Stone Carving Park and you will arrive at Himekawa Genryu Shizen Tanshoen park. Enjoy a walk through this quiet and beautiful space. It is hard to believe that the park is situated right next to a national road. It is meticulously maintained and easy to navigate. After enjoying walking to your heart’s content, head back to the goal of the Hakuba Sanosaka Tourism Association.
