This was one of my most memorable experiences while visiting Tokyo. I was introduced to the inner city culture with the perfect ambiance one would expect in a professionally crafted tour. The bike ride itself was not strenuous but perfect to suit my riding abilities.
The many venues we travelled offered us a glimpse of the local charm and colorful personalities of the local people. One of the highlights was being able to attend an extraordinary temple ceremony along with its blessing. As the ride continued through the city we stopped a Sumo Gym and were able to meet and surround ourselves with two aspiring young wrestlers. Adding to this experience was visiting the Sumo wrestling museum. Our ride experience included a nice lunch(not included in the price of the tour) in the local area where sumo wrestlers often come to eat. Our tour ended at the Sky Tree Doughnut shop. A very convenient location to visit the Sky Tree and shop the many higher end brand stores for the area. Thank you "Yasushi" for a great experience!!

Yasushi and Yoko were very helpful. We went there last week and it's considered as the typhoon season in Japan. We thought they would cancel the biking tour but they still let us experience the biking around Odaiba and the Tsukiji Fish market. The whole experience is incredible. Touring around Tokyo can be seen differently riding the bikes than just walking around it. Yasushi and Yoko also made sure that we stay hydrated and even offered us some sushi (which is not included in the tour). I would tour again with them when I go back again to Japan.

I had a fantastic time on the tour. I was surprised to find only myself on the tour but equally pleased that it wasn't cancelled.

It was a wonderful experience. I can't recommend it enough. Going on this bike tour gave me a look into Japan that was fascinating.

The tour guides were fabulous. Perfect English and wonderful personalities. They took pictures throughout the tour which was great because I never did 😊

Thank you so much for a wonderful day.

This couple was really wonderful in every aspect! The ride is really easy and they made everything for us to enjoy, also paying attention to small details like sharing some sushi and a cold drink, waiting for us at the mall, and smiling at every second. They both have great english and it's really easy to have a great time with them. Thanks for everything!

My husband & I both really enjoyed every aspect of this tour. Yoko & Yusushi were SO friendly, competent & knowledgeable; and their enthusiasm for what they do,meant that they went far beyond our expectations, to give us a truly memorable day.
It was a valued unexpected bonus that they photographed us during the whole day, and emailed us lots of stunning photos by which to remember the experience.. No surprise that we were smiling delightedly in every one, even the one of us peddling uphill !!
We both thoroughly recommend this cycling tour, and this lovely Japanese couple.

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 a solo traveller and joined Odaiba tour with Yoko being my tour guide. It was a great experience and a very enjoyable ride to get to places on bike. In addition to learning a lot about the places visited, I learnt a lot from Yoko about Japanese culture and lifestyle in general. I really appreciated a Japanese tour guide, and Yoko was happy to answer all my questions and we shared experiences with each other. Overall, it was a relaxing and informational tour.

I did Tokyo Skytree cycling tour with Yoko and I had wonderful time.
Definitely recommend it to everyone, especially if you want something off the beaten touristy track. It was my first time in Tokyo and I must say my knowledge of local ways and culture doubled that day.
6-hours bike ride was not difficult at all because we did frequent stops to see interesting local places (so don't think of it as a prep for Iron Man :)) and cycling was safe because we mainly used quiet small streets and parks.
Yoko is a great guide, very knowledgable and friendly and her English is excellent.
I had a great active day, learned a lot and have lots of photos from Yoko to remember the day. Will book a tour with Y&Y again when I am next in Tokyo.
