The order of this list is only my idea since I live in Nakayama area. Therefore, it is free for you where you start. Please keep road etiquette and your health while going on cycling.

opened by Ryuoike ponds in the temple, and climb up the slope to Kiorosu
Kaido Highway. There is a junior high school near the end of the slope
road. Then across the highway, you go into the narrow road and you find
a two-lane road. Turn left the two-lane road, it descends and there is
a traffic signal near the end of the slope, therefore, please go down slowly
and carefully. Go down to the road a few minutes, you find Mamagawa River

Bridge across the river after passing through the remains of the barrier at Ichikawa
. (Don't go down the road at the flood plain along it since there are no
way to climb up the bank near the bridge.) After across the bridge, soon
after you go down the west bank of the river at Edogawaku to go to the
south along it at its flood plain, you could see millions of red cluster
amaryllises blooming on the green bank side.
The flowers blooms on it almost 2 kilometers long by the bridge across the river of Keiyo Highway. If you find the bridge, you climb up the bank and go to the north, so you could see the cluster amaryllises different passion.

Let's continue the cycling, you go to the south again on the road under the bank, you will reach at the dead end, then you will turn the right and go through a narrow path before the dead end. So, you go through several houses and you turn the left the first corner of the path, you find some big trees of Shinozaki Koen Park

is Ichinoe Nanushi Yashiki
. Now if you turn to the left at the signal and you go to the street by
the second signal after the turning, you find a temple that is called Yakushadera
