Kyoto is famous for its kaiseki and shojin ryori cuisines, but all that wouldn't exist without the crystal-clear water that flows unseen beneath the city. We'll visit some of the best wells in Kyoto and you'll drink from the oldest—over a thousand years old. You'll also hear about the stories (some outright creepy, others lovey-dovey) behind the wells.
Feel free to personalize this offer with Gulay.
E-bike (electronic pedal-assist bicycle) for persons up to 1.85m tall (6'0)
Wireless receiver with earpiece - every participant will get a wireless receiver to hear explanations without having to stop and strain to listen.

I use Panasonic electric pedal-assist bikes, which means you’ll breeze through the streets without having to break a sweat. You’ll have to move the pedals but you won’t have to apply pressure because the bike pedals for you. The bikes are for persons 142cm-185cm (4’6-6’0) tall. Unfortunately the bike shop doesn't have smaller or bigger bikes, which means only people who can fit the bikes should sign up.
Not by default because Japanese law does not require helmets. We can provide helmets if you request for them in advance though.
