Kyoto Ocean Road

Discover the Japanese Seaside with e-BIKE

Ocean Kyoto area (near Ine, Amanohashidate, Kinosaki) is called the ‘origin of Japan’ because it is believed to be Japan’s first ancient kingdom, where people first settled after crossing the sea from the Asian continent. This is Kyoto’s northern tip, perched on the Japanese Sea, just 2 hours  from Kyoto City.

This area is a mecca of wellness and life longevity, award winning sake breweries, high-quality seafood, fruits, vegetablehot springs, beaches, and a variety of UNESCO rated spots that include one of the most beautiful bays in the world and a global geopark.

But it’s hilly, road is narrow, parking area is very limited and public transport is few, so most tourists cannot enjoy the nature, culture and unique slow mood enough by car or on foot. Therefore…

We believe e-BIKE is the supreme way to enjoy them all.

The unique aspect of Ine are its funaya.

Viewed from the mountains at either end of the bay, the Amanohashidate Sandbar (which roughly translates to “bridge in heaven”) looks like a pathway between heaven and earth.
