Find Your City Bike at one of These Bike Rentals in Tokyo

by Mieke - TripleLights travel specialist

Cycling through the City   

Renting a bike can be a very smart way to move around in Tokyo. The city is relatively safe to cycle in, since you will mostly use pavements instead of the road for cars. Be sure to bring a good (electronic) map (tip: try mapswithme) since Tokyo is easy to get lost in. Also, parking your bike is difficult now and then, especially when you are in the middle of the centre or when your party is large. But apart from that, it’s a very comfortable, fast and fun way to travel, and cheap too! Don’t forget to bring your passport when renting a bike.

Michiko is very easy to be with and an excellent interpreter. She guided us on a 1/2 day Tour of Tokyo and even gave us important information on how to use the complicated Train system. The most important event for me was meeting my Japanese family, who do not speak English. She interpreted effortlessly and the day went without a glitch. I would highly recommend Michiko for Tokyo tours and an...

We had a great day exploring Ueno, Akhibara and Tsjuki outer market with Mitsuru. Our whole family appreciated his kind and patient manner and insight into Tokyo.

Thank you Mitsuru for a great day!

2 days ago Traveler: Jan -   Tour Guide: AKIRA

We decided us for a guided tour at our arrival day in Tokyo to beat the jetlag after a 12 hour long haul overnight flight from Europe. To prepare the tour we wrote a very detailed message with our expectations. Unfortunately the suggested iternaty didn‘t meet our expectations, so we did a lot of research about Tokyo on our own. In the end this was the best excercise to get ready for the city, but...

Yukiko took us through two whirlwind days around Tokyo. She was punctual, knowledgeable, and friendly! Just having her lead us through the public transportation nightmare that is the Tokyo transit system was worth every penny spent on a private guide. Thanks for an amazing trip!
