What if you can enjoy cycling, bonfires and coffee at the same time?

THE GOOD DAY VELO offers you great experience with coffee, campfire and biking combo.

Enjoy the scenic beauty of Kyoto while cycling to the bonfire spot at Yase.

It is about 10km one way. On the way, you will enjoy the beautiful scenery of Kyoto and the rich natural landscape.

At the foot of Mount Hiei, we will build a fire, listen to the sounds of nature and enjoy a cup of coffee while staring at the flames of the fire.

The coffee is brewed in a wild boil.

This is a simple and wild way of brewing coffee using a bonfire.

Put the kettle into the fire and pour the ground coffee beans into the boiling water. When it starts to boil, take it off the heat and put it back on. This process is repeated several times. The result is a coffee with a good bitterness and a mellow taste.
Now all you have to do is watch the fire and enjoy the luxury of coffee and nature.

Lunch is either bread or cup noodles bought on the way. Cup noodles are also a great treat to eat by the fire.
