These sections list resources in both English and Japanese that provide useful information on cycle-touring. Priority is given to sources that provide detailed routes or suggest specific areas to cycle.

NOTE: There is also a lot of information on maps and train schedules under Route Planning in the "Getting Started" section. The “Nuts & Bolts” sections of individual routes also contain detailed information specific to that route.

Resources are constantly changing and are therefore -- somewhat less than constantly -- always in the process of being updated. If you know of a good resource that is not yet listed on this site, please click the Email icon above and submit it for inclusion.
