The Boso Jinja Ride on the Boso Peninsula was established by young Shinto priests in December 2018. Handmade bicycle racks have been installed at shrines along the route, meaning cyclists can easily park at and visit a number of historic shrines.
The “Boso Jinja Ride Stamp Rally” began in April 2019 with many cyclists visiting numerous shrines in the region, collecting a stamp for their stamp card at each one they stopped at. For centuries, the Boso area was influenced by the Shinto culture of the Kansai region, so Kanto now has many shrines with long and interesting histories for you to learn about.
