customer review

“This shop is at the perfect location for a one-day bicycle trip to snowmonkey park (Jigokudani Yaen Kōen). Contact was easy fast and in english. We got two hybrid bikes in perfect condition. The ride to snowmonkey park took us about 1,5-2h at an easy pace slightly uphill.
We highly recommend this place if you want to take a one day cycling trip near Nagano. You get there by local train, it’s about 10 minutes walk from Obuse station.
The owner is very nice and speaks very good english.
