Discover the beauty of Kyoto on a bicycle tour!

Discover the beauty of Kyoto on a bicycle tour!

1. Bicycle is by far the best way to get around Kyoto’s crowded streets. Kyoto has a great geography for two wheels. Why wait for crowded buses or be stuck in traffic with an expensive taxi when you have the freedom to move around at will like the locals do. 2. We take you on scenic routes which are chosen with your safety in mind. Riding a bike alone you might get lost or end up on very narrow streets. We know the best way to get around and give you tips on staying safe. We also know quiet side streets with lots of character and charm. 3.We tell you stories of the city’s past and give you background knowledge along the way. ​Learn about the world of the shogun and samurai, the geisha house and even get a background on the shinto and buddhist beliefs. Learning about the cultural legacy of old Kyoto is a great insight to Japanese customs and culture.

Let’s ride on a bike to explore Higashiyama, the most popular area among Kyoto, where many famous temples and shrines concentrated in. This area is well-known about its jam-up, since thousands of tourists visit at all times of the year. Resulted in overcrowded buses and even if you are luckily get in, the bus may not move forward. There are so many bus services provided by several companies which makes you confused. Yet people surround you maybe also tourists like you who know little about the area. Let’s not waste your time reading maps, waiting for buses, and traffic jams. After we leave Kyoto station, we will guide you several places: Kyoto Gyoen National Garden, Shimogamo jinja, Ginkakuji temple, Tetsugaku-no-michi Street (the philosophers' path), Eikando, and Nanzenji temple.
