Cycling in Japan (Akita-ken)
I am moving to Japan specifically Akita-Ken prefecture. I am an avid cyclist both road and mt. I have been trying to research bike shops, trails etc. Anyone have knowledge of biking opprotunties in Akita Ken prefecture. Thanks for any help
Where in Akita?
If you let me know a more specific area, I might be able to find you better info...
At the moment I see that the city of Nikaho Toursim Association has a MTB section, below is their address and contact info in Japanese, not sure if they have anyone competent in English.

Seems there are trails on Mt Chokai (鳥海山).
I live in Nikko in Tochigi prefecture and we are currently building a city endorsed beginner oriented 6km downhill run. With more trails for different skills and styles to come as time and weather permits. The MTB opportunties in Nikko will make it a destination location for recreation along with the standard history and beauty of the Nikko area. Anyhow.. let me know more about what kind of riding you want, and I can do my best and dig a little deeper.
