Tour one of Japan’s top 100 paths on a rent-a-cycle
Kibiji District features many historic sites, including Bitchu Kokubun-ji Temple, a five-storied pagoda, Kibitsu-jinja Shrine, Kibitsuhiko-jinja Shrine, and the Tsukuriyama-kofun burial mound. The five-story pagoda has been designated an Important Cultural Property of Japan, and—along with seasonal flowers such as lotuses in spring, sunflowers in summer, and cosmos in fall—has become a symbol of Kibi Plain. The Kibiji Cycling Path, selected as one of Japan’s top 100 paths, offers visitors a chance to enjoy touring the historic sites on a rent-a-cycle. Kibi Plain is awarded 1 star in the Michelin Green Guide Japan.
