Wicked Trail riding back roads of Japan?

Anyone interested in having a ride out in Japan?
Perhaps not the most usual destination but a fabulous motorcycling destination. A fascinating mix of urban madness and spectacular rural tranquility. I'm looking at putting a adventure trip there for 2011 riding 250 trail bikes and doing as much off road as possible with as much culture and culinary adventure as people want.

Plan is to fly to Osaka and get rented TTR250/XR250's from Wakayama (one hour south of Osaka). Beautiful area with loads of lanes and twisty mountain roads which are a scream on little bikes. There is also lots of cultural stuff/old Japan in the Kii Peninsular:

Also you've got the longest trails in Japan just over the water in Tokushima on Shikoku. Was planning to do these lanes as part of a trip down to Kyushu to do the volcanos, hot springs and tremendous mountain trails.

I lived in Japan for many years and as a fluent speaker have been doing these trips over the years and just love riding in Japan as its such a great trip. Never done bike trips commercially and am now throwing the idea open to see if there's any interest for a at cost tour, looking to do a trip in either late spring to see the cherry blossom or September of 2011.

Have done Hokkaido in the past and although it is good its a long way to go and makes logistics harder with a lot longer to ride between entertainment.

Will keep putting stuff on the website - let me know if you're interested.
The video Adventure Biking in Japan I made last September and is one of my favourite routes through the mountains.
