This is a challenging course that you pedal for 200km and go around Tsugaru Peninsula. First, head to Mutsu Bay crossing over Asunaro Line on the mountains. Arriving at the coastline, look around the scenic spots such as Takanosaki and Tappizaki. In the latter half, you have to go up the biggest hill of the course, but you will see the view from Chohkandai after the hill. It is worth taking a look. After recharging your energy at Takayama Inari Shrine where the red gateways stand in a row, you have to make one last push to the goal located at Goshogawara. Although this course is for advanced cyclists, it is also good to take a few days to finish.

Coastside is the best cycling location. Let's pedal against the wind!
At "Marche Yomogita", a rice omlet which uses tomatos from Yomogita Villege is famous.
At Takanosaki, uniquely-shaped rocks are projecting outward. A scenic spot you will want to visit at least once.
Tappizaki, means "dragon flies" in Japanese because of the strong winds.
View of the Japan Sea from Tappizaki. A spectacular view.
Going down the winding hill from Chohkandai.
Mysterious view at Takayama Inari Shrine where the red gateways stand in a row.
A well-known food of Michinoeki Tsuruta, large Bikkuri (surprise) bread!
Tsuru No Mai Bridge around sunset. The symmetry of the golden yellow bridge and its reflection in the lake is beautiful.
