This tour is a great mixture of modern Japanese culture, and ancient Japanese historical locations. It's like a sampler platter. We visit many different places for a short period of time just to get a taste, and you can always return to your favorites another time to spend more time if you wish.
Tokyo is a surprisingly compact city, allowing us to bike to all of these sights during our approximately 6 hour bike tour (depending upon the pace of the group), if you know where you are going. Luckily for you, I do! I have biked throughout Tokyo at least a few thousand hours. I have selected the most convenient bicycle routes to be able to see the most sites in a short but comfortable period of time.
If you tell me where you are staying (hotel, address, or train station) I will email you the time and location schedule of the exact train you will need to take to arrive on time. We want to make it as easy as possible for you to ride with us.
*Please note that the finish time of the tour will vary according to the pace of the group. The price of lunch is not included in the cost but is usually less than 1000 yen.
** The inner Tsukiji Inner Wholesale Fish Market is closed on Sundays and some holidays. In those cases, we visit the Outer Tsukiji Fish Market
