Excellent idea to renovate an obsolete railroad to bring so much fun to visitors! The staff are super nice and helpful though we don't speak Japanese. Even if you don't know how to bike, it's perfectly fine to ride the bike. Suitable for even kids and senior. I only wish the track can be longer and more information about the... More

This is a unique and fun activity--a true off-the-beaten-track sort of experience! We bought the Nohi Bus package that includes transport to and from Takayama, which made it very easy to get there and back. The route was beautiful, especially because we were there during cherry blossom season. We were the only non-Japanese people in our group. :) The staff... More

Gattan-Go is a kind of bicycle by which we can pedal on the rail track. It holds from the middle of April to the middle of November. The bikes are hybrid, so you can pedal without fatigue. It was more fun than I had expected. I recommend that you book, so that you can use for sure. You can confirm... More

This was a very good experience for us and for the price we paid it was unbeatable . I think it works out about £7 UK pounds. We were glad we booked the electrical assistance bikes as the way back was sloping gently upwards and you need to remember it is a few kilometres long. The scenery is great and... More

Gattan Go was a very fun experience. With the bike ride on the railway tracks to the beautiful scenery, unforgettable experience. VERY friendly staff with excellent english. I think during that session, my girlfriend and I were the only ones that wasn't Japanese. And we got a letter written from the staff after the ride. It felt so warm.I truly... More
