BOSO Adventure Tours - Minamiboso Cycling Tour

The Boso Peninsula, which is situated between Tokyo and the Pacific Ocean, comprises most of Chiba Prefecture, and is a common destination for visitors from all over the Tokyo area who enjoy outdoor recreation. The mountainous southern half of the peninsula, known as Minamiboso (southern Boso), is where a sightseeing tour called BOSO Adventure Tours operates. Their single-day tours are tailored to those who are looking to experience the beauty of the Minamiboso countryside, whether you are staying in Chiba or a looking for an accessible day trip from Tokyo.

I participated in one of their cycling tours, but if you want to learn about their other cycling tours, e-bike tours, hiking tours, or culture tours, you can visit their website https://bosoadventure.com/( External link )

The tour I joined started from their base at the Heguri Club House, a hangout for local cycling clubs. The English-speaking staff at BOSO Adventure Tours can arrange for pick up from the JR Uchibo Line’s Iwai Station, or you can come via a highway bus (from Tokyo Station, Shinjuku Station, Yokohama Station, Haneda Airport, or Chiba Station) and be picked up at the Highway Oasis Furari bus stop. Upon arrival at the Heguri Club House, I was fitted with a road bike and a helmet, and given an explanation about our 40km ride.
