Back country of Japan
Tohoku is the back country of Japan.You can feel something like the roots of the Japan. Mountains are deeper, less populated. But it is not true wild like Hokkaido. So it is closer to you.
Scenery of Tohoku is tasteful. You can feel long simple lives here.
Winter should be avoid, especially side of Japan Sea. Otherwise you may be hit heavy dump snow.
Tohoku is not too much populated. So relatively it is easier to ride. However, of course, it is recommended to avoid big cities, like other places in Japan. Try to take smaller road. National route is usually busy so not so fan.
Osorezan Mt., Northern Aomori
Here is one of the most famous Spiritual place in Japan. ITAKO is female spiritualistic medium who can become your old friends or family passed away.
It is a beautiful massive primeval beech forest registered by UNESCO as a World Natural Heritage. You can cross this area by your bike. Road is not paved, MTB is recommended. Distance is only 40km, but it is very steep, you have to pass 3 mountains! So bring enough food for emergency.
