Tokyo city tour by Electric Bicycle B
Tour Description by Japan city tour
One of the most fun ways to explore a city is by bicycle. You can see more in a shorter period of time, you get a good feel for the city and as a bonus, you get less tired compared to walking so you will have plenty of energy to discover Tokyo by night after the tour.
Another big plus is that the crowds can largely be avoided by using bicycles, making this tour more corona-proof than some other tours. One more great point about our bicycle tour compared to other suppliers is that our tour lasts between 6-7 hours as opposed to 2-3 hours, which makes for a full, active day program.

10.30 am: Meet with your guide in Toyosu. Your guide will then rent your bicycles and you will be on your way.
11.15 am: The first stop will be the compact Kyu Shiba Rikyu Garden which is not very busy but definitely worth a visit.
12 pm: After that, we will make a stop at the Tsukiji market, while the wholesale market moved to Toyosu the outside food market is still there and a really great spot for some snacking.
12.45 pm: We will then get back on the bikes for a longer ride to Ningyocho where you will again get the opportunity to snack on some quintessential Japanese bites and we will stop by the Suitengu Shrine which has a special connection to dogs that your guide will explain.
2 pm: Another longer stretch will bring you to Asakusa, a must-see destination in Tokyo because of the Sensoji temple and traditional neighborhood around it.
3.30 pm: For the last part of the tour you will cross the river and ride back south through the part of town that used to be ‘shitamachi’, which is where the regular folk used to live. You will be back in Toyosu at around 4.30 pm. Your guide will drop you off at the station and explain to you how to get back to your hotel or next destination.

- Super fun tour!
Our bicycle tour was a fantastic experience. It was a beautiful tour with a fun, enthusiastic guide. She told us a lot about Japanese culture, history, and customs, very interesting. The guide also had a great interaction with our teenagers, this tour was definitely family-friendly.
Julia – 2019 Winter –
- Did two great tours
We had the same guide for two tours, one bicycle tour, and one walking tour in Tokyo, and both tours were very good. The guide told us a lot about what we saw and the general customs of Japan, and we were impressed with her ability to answer pretty much all our questions!
