Ride with KYOTO
What's Ride with KYOTO？
Kyoto Prefecture established the "Ride with KYOTO Promotion Council," a public-private partnership platform, to promote regional development, revitalization, and health enhancement through the use of bicycles, based on the Kyoto Prefecture Plan for Promotion of Bicycle Use (formulated in December 2019). The Ride with KYOTO Promotion Council will work to improve the riding environment for bicycles, as well as to form cycle tourism and new wide-area routes, and to disseminate information.
About Kyoto Prefecture
Located in the Kinki region near the center of the Japanese archipelago, it covers an area of 4,613.21 square kilometers and is elongated from northwest to southeast.
Bordered by the Tamba Highlands, located roughly in the center of Kyoto Prefecture, the area is divided into a Sea of Japan climate (slightly less precipitation in summer and more snow in winter) and an inland climate (drier with large annual and daily variations in temperature).
Kyoto's traditional vegetables, grown in Kyoto's rich soil and water sources, have graced dining tables with their unique colors and shapes. In addition, "Uji tea," which is mainly produced in the southern part of Kyoto Prefecture, and black soybeans from Kyotamba, are some of Kyoto's most delicious specialties.
Temples, shrines, and temples full of history and mystery, such as Byodoin Temple and Atago Shrine, are located in this area. Sunset at Yuhigaura Beach, which offers beautiful sunset views from spring to summer, and Amanohashidate, one of the three most scenic spots in Japan, are just a few examples of the many places that attract people from both Japan and abroad. Kyoto Prefecture is full of spots that attract people from both inside and outside of Japan.
