Overview

Take a leisurely bike ride through the top sights of Tokyo’s Shitamachi district on this small-group bike tour. Pedal your way to Fukagawa-fudo Temple and Tomioka Hachimangu Shrine, two of the area’s most interesting religious sites. Then scout for wrestlers outside Ryogoku Kokugikan Sumo Stadium, the city’s main sumo venue, and visit the placid confines of Kiyosumi, a traditional garden. Finish your cycling at the sky-high Tokyo Skytree, one of Tokyo’s newest landmarks. This small-group cycle tour, limited to just 10 riders, also includes a helmet, guide, entrance at Kiyosumi Garden, and beverages.
  • Half-day Tokyo bike tour of Shitamachi
  • Ride a bicycle on an easy route through the historical district
  • Stop at Fukagawa-fudo Temple and Tomioka Hachimangu Shrine
  • See where sumo tournaments are held at the Ryogoko Sumo Stadium
  • Enjoy the peaceful landscape of the Kiyosumi Japanese Garden
  • Marvel at the modern skyscraper, Tokyo Skytree
  • Small-group tour limited to 10 ensures a more personalized experience
Take a personalized bike ride through Tokyo’s Shitamachi area, giving you a firsthand taste of the traditional religious monuments, gardens, stadiums, and modern tourist landmarks that define this bustling area. Over the course of your leisurely excursion, you’ll get a taste of the many contrasts between new and old that make Tokyo such a fascinating city to visit.

Start your cycle tour in front of the neighborhood’s Quraz building just across from Kachidoki station in the morning, where you’ll meet your guide and climb aboard your comfortable bike for your exploration of Tokyo’s Shitamachi area. This historic area, which was once home to Japanese commoners during the country’s Edo period, has transformed into a busy district that’s now the site of both modern high rises and traditional Japanese buildings, often that sit side-by-side.

Make your first cycle stop at Sumiyoshi Shrine on the old island of Tsukudajima. Then head to the neighborhood’s Fukagawa-fudo Temple and Tomioka Hachimangu, a Buddhist center and Shinto shrine visited by many locals. Continue pedaling with your guide to Kiyosumi Gardens, navigating a beautiful pond where turtles and koi swim along the way. Proceed on to Ryogoku Kokugikan Sumo Stadium, the site of the country’s most famous sumo tournaments, where you may have the chance to see one the hulking wrestlers hanging around outside.

Take a cycling break around midday at a local restaurant, where you are free to purchase lunch at your own expense.

Finish your cycling trip in the afternoon at the base of Tokyo Skytree. At this point, your guide will point you in the direction of nearby Asakusa for more sightseeing on your own or provide directions to your next destination. If you prefer to linger in the area, browse for a few souvenirs at the Soramachi shopping mall, or head up to the 2,080-foot (634m) Skytree Observatory, where you can enjoy incredible panoramic views of Tokyo and the surrounding area beyond.

The bike trip was well organized and a fun day of seeing a different Tokyo at a different pace. Our guides were really helpful,and really showed that they cared about the riders having a good time and staying hydrated in the hot weather. It was a way to see more charming offbeat sites of the city and I was surprised at how easy it was to bicycle through a busy city like Tokyo. Thank you to Yoko and her husband for a great day.

Really enjoyed this day this was our fourth day in Tokyo and the first three had been very hectic, navigating the subway and shopping etc, so this day was great for just relaxing. It sounds like it could be hard work, cycling in July heat and humidity, but it was surprisingly easy. We all enjoyed lunch, even my husband found a curry he liked and he can be reluctant to try new foods. My son still wanted to go shopping once the tour had ended, but for the six hours we were on this tour it was great to slow things down for a while and see something different, which we wouldn't have seen otherwise. We did the Mt Fuji tour the following day, which constantly felt like we were being hurried back onto the coach, so this cycling tour was my favourite out of the two.

Yasushi is nice. The tour did not provide much information about japanese culture or history. The schedule is too slow/loose. In other words, we needs to be more activities in the schedule. Besides the cost, I feel I lost the precious time in Tokyo that I could have used to do something else

I was the only participant during this tour, so I kind of considered myself lucky, I'll admit, I felt like I got a lot of attention, especially when it came to hearing about the areas we stopped in. This was my first tour with Yasushi and he was a great tour guide. Biking through the city and the back areas that were less crowded with people and traffic was nice. The bikes were easy to operate, made me wish I had one back home here that I could use as much! Japan definitely makes it much easier to bike than where I live here. Yasushi gave a lot of good details about each spot we stopped in and I didn't feel like the tour was rushed at all.

Our guides Yasushi and Yoko were exceptional. This is the part of Tokyo not many tourists would bother venturing to. The guides took us to out of the way shrines, temples and sights not found in tourist guidebooks. The whole day moves along at a pleasant pace. Even navigating the Tokyo traffic on bikes was easy. Highly recommended.

This tour was fabulous from beginning to end. We were taken through areas of Tokyo that were fabulous and educational-and not touristy. We got to see the real Tokyo! We stopped in the most gorgeous Mitsubishi koi and turtle park and had lunch and went to an interesting temple and met sumo wrestlers!
