Overview
The itinerary is recommended for the first timers. However, we can arrange the itinerary as per your requests. It can be multiple days. Please let us know your thought. If you have no idea, that's totally fine. We will make a special tour for you.

Please choose a day and send us a booking request. Then, we can talk about the plan. A last-minute request or change may be difficult to accept. Please contact us well in advance.

Yasushi studied and worked in Canada for 4 years and Yoko did the same in Australia for 3 years. Now we've been government licensed guides for about 10 years in Japan. We guide all over Japan from small groups to large ones.

We've offered about 150 private tours on Viator Private Guide and one of top-rated guides in Tokyo. Unfortunately, Viator stops offering that great website so we decided to continue our service here.

If we are not available, one of our trustful guide friends will take care of you.

We are looking forward to meeting you here in Tokyo.

We had tour with a beautiful and vibrant Yoko on our 2st official day in Tokyo. We booked a group tour but ended up having a private one as there were no other participants. She took us many places around Odaiba, introduced to Japanese culture and customs and we covered a large area with these bikes. She advised to visit the digital art museum what was so fantastic. I highly recommend, thank you Yoko.

These two are the best! literally I could have hung around with these two my entire time I was in Tokyo. Whenever you go to a city you want to see it for what it is, you want to get a feel for the place and go off the beaten track, well thats what we did. I was loved the water shrine and how to cleanse yourself, the Kiyosumi gardens were great, the Sky Tower was scary high and when they asked what we should get for lunch, being introduced to Okonomiyaki blew my mind. it was LUSH! oh and we met a sumo wrestler. Then afterwards they just stayed behind and just chilled with me for a drink. Would like to think I made some friends in Japan :)

A wonderful calm landscape in the busy metropolis of Tokyo you could spend hours simply observing the herons the turtles and the magnificent carp. The cherry blossom was still in bloom when l visited and this of course added to the serene landscape. Originally the site of a mansion the park was donated to Tokyo by the Ieasaki family. It is a wonderfully calm experience to walk around the pond and step on the stepping stones which enable you to take in different aspects of the landscape. It is easy to reach by tube and costs very little to enter. The guide leaflets come in many languages and are excellent to follow.

One might not think of exploring a major city like Tokyo on bike as a practical idea, however, I highly recommend this exceptional opportunity to spend a day with Yoko and Yasushi. info@cyclingtourstokyo.com. They made sure that we were comfortable and safe and provided a fascinating tour that provided a rich understanding of Japanese culture. Yoko would show us pictures in her book to illustrate all the facts… One such was a picture of okonomi-yaki, (a special pancake that translates to “what you like cooked” in it) as we walked through the neighborhood where this is made and sold. Yoko’s vibrant personality and excellent command of English provided us insights about Japanese life and history— and food! For example, we visited a neighborhood candy shop where Yoko introduced us to the various treats school children might choose. One was “whistle candy” — life-saver shape, that when resting like an “O” on pursed lips and you blow through, make a shrill whistle. * Of course, we had a delicious lunch as well and the treats continued later in the afternoon, tasting mochi . We visited Azumaya. and admired the work in a specialty leather shop. We learned about the famous 18th c.mapmaker Ino Tadataka and his famous maps used up until 1924 ; learned how to properly offer prayers at Shinto Shrines, and had the opportunity to attend the Goma Rite at Fukagawa Fudo-do ceremony. Yoko encouraged us to participate without either a sense of obligation or feeling like awkward strangers. It made both Shinto and Buddhist rituals very real and meaningful. We enjoyed strolling through the famous Kiyosumi Gardens, acquired by Yataro Iwasaki and finding out the history of this park, filled with special treasures, rare rocks and Basho’s famous haiku about the frog making a sound as it jumps into the pond.It is a place of scenic beauty and donated to the City of Tokyo. We were introduced to Sumo students and learned more about this fascinating art. Our bikes made navigating through old neighborhoods pleasant, allowing us to see so many different aspects of Japanese life. Yoko and Yasushi are top-notch guides and left us with a sense of the cultural richness of Japan. Yoko translated one of the "Ema “ (prayer plaques). “May the world be a happy place for everyone”— indeed, this tour made it feel that such a prayer and wish is possible.

I was lucky to ride this relatively easy 14 kms. with both Yasushi (morning) and Yoko (afternoon), and we had a great time! I was in it for the ride, but the stops at parks, a community zoo and the Tokyo Aquarium were great features. This is a perfect family outing ... which I enjoyed as a single person, too. Y&Y are great!
