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.

We are very glad we booked our tour with Junko, she was an excellent guide on our first day in Tokyo.
