Lake Hamana Cycling Road

Great views of the sea and mountains! Enjoy cycling all the way around Lake Hamana!


Lake Hamana (Hamanako), in the western part of Hamamatsu City, has the shoreline among brackish lakes in Japan. Lake Hamana Cycling Road is a cycling trail that was laid out to lie almost full circle around the lake. Many people come to this cycling road where one can feel and enjoy the nature of Lake Hamana, some enjoy riding road bikes in earnest, some find pleasure in a light-hearted ride with rental bicycles during their trip


Lake Hamana has a variety of places to see depending on each area. On the south side of the lake connected with the sea, there is Maisaka Town with the iconic red shrine gate standing in the sea, and a historic town Arai where Arai Sekisho (a historical checkpoint) still remains. On the north side, connected with the mountains is Mikkabi Town famous for mandarin oranges, and Sunza Town where marine sports are popular. In addition, the relaxing scenery is charming in this area with quaint stations scattered along the Tenryu Hamanako Railroad. On the west side, there are a number of attractions to visit: Kanzan Temple with hot-spring resort, Hamanako Pal Pal, Hamanako Flower Park and Hamanako Garden Park.
One can freely enjoy cycling during their trip as bicycles can be rented at bicycle rental terminals located in 7 spots around Lake Hamana. Bicycles can be dropped off at each terminal, so feel free to cycle wherever you'd like. With the Hamanako Excursion Ship, you can also take your bicycle aboard and travel from the Kanzan Temple area to the northern area.
