The beauty of fatigue and the thrill of conquest

After two years of difficult decisions, we are pleased to announce that the Eroica Japan you have all been waiting for will take place on Sunday 22 May.
In the year 2022 although there are still many restrictions due to the Corona virus pandemic, Eroica Japan will be held.
This year we had to cancel the festival eve, remove the bike racks and simplify the mechanical support system. We apologise for any inconvenience this may cause you, but by reducing the load on Agatsuma County volunteers, who work with us safely and generously, Eroica Japan can now take place.

2022 will be an important year for Eroica Japan. Eroica is a small event that started in Italy in 1997 but has grown into a global cycling festival. Eroica Japan will return to these roots, to renew its original spirit and start again.

We are still a small event, but we hope to continue to grow as an accessible event for all cycling fans, so we would like to ask for the understanding and cooperation of all Eroica Japan fans until the event is fully operational.
We look forward to seeing you all in beautiful Kitakaruizawa.
