We have recently launched our 7th. route – Time Travel to Good Old Tokyo. This route has 30 km and several hills, it will be the most difficult route among our seven various different routes. This tour is designed for people who have stamina and physical fitness. However, look at the picture! We are all small Japanese girls and even  we can enjoy the tour including hills, so you don’t need to worry too much 🙂

Actually this tour takes you to untouristy and off the beaten paths, where you will feel nostalgic even though is is the first time for you to visit the areas.

It is always very glad and honor that we have many return customers. They encourage us to create more and more new routes! This time we will visit the north western part of Tokyo central  area. There will be many more areas you will be able to enjoy cycling through.

We are sure you will love the new route, too!  Route G

New Route – Tokyo Hills and Backstreets Ride

June 29, 2015

We will launch the new route in a short while.  “Tokyo Hills and Backstreets Ride”, as this name indicates, we have many hills and take small backstreets on our way. There are 12 hills (half of them are uphills) and some of them are quite steep 🙂

After the shrine, we will go up another hill called O-Saka, which is quite steep and challenging. Even our guide might dismount from the bike and walk… The area is now Kagurazaka, the area’s name itself contains the meaning of slope, so there are lots of hills in this area. Some time ago, Kagurazaka had many Geisha houses and still there are many small and nice restaurants at their hidden backstreets.

Cycling up and down some more hills, we must become very hungry. Yes, now it’s lunch time!

After lunch, we will stop at Japanese garden, Rikugien.

Total distance is 30 km, although this is a hard course with many hills but we will promise you will enjoy the entire route and find different part of Tokyo, and will also promise the beer after the tour is very tasty without a doubt!!   beer
