About NORU Kyoto

Who are we and what do we do?

乗る= NORU=to ride

And that’s exactly what we do.  We are a boutique cycling tour operator based in Kyoto, Japan.  Combining our over 10 years of living and riding in Japan, we sought out to show travellers why Japan is truly the new cycling paradise.


THE DIFFERENCE

More than just the great rides, our adventures are about providing a cultural immersion experience, showcasing Japan’s unique traditions, history, design, and craft.

WHERE DO WE RIDE?

We have 3 Kyoto city routes that were carefully crafted to blend city exploring, must-see attractions, and lesser-known stunning environments that are totally off-the-beaten-path.  Our traveller reviews have spoken, and we know we’re on to something right.


KYOTO AND BEYOND

We also do single and multi-day road bike trips. These are completely bespoke and can be arranged with our trip planners.
