From the popular Sea to Summit event held in Higashikawa, we travel to the must-see destinations of Biei and the charms of Furano’s vibrant landscape, this area is overflowing with scenic beauty. This ride offers many special goods, confectionaries, and restaurants where you can try delicious local cuisine. Have a relaxing soak in a wonderful hot spring bath to recover from the fatigue of your journey and enjoy the gorgeous food served there. Road surfaces on this course are of a particularly high quality, so the only possible challenge in this area is the lack of convenience stores or similar amenities along some parts of the ride.
