Cherry Blossoms forecast 2017

March 2, 2017


It looks Tokyo is the place we can see the cherry blossoms the earliest time in this spring. There are many company who provide on-line cherry blossoms forecasts and they say cherry blossoms will start to bloom earlier than usual in Kanto (including Tokyo) and northern Japan, but it will come later than normal year in Kansai (Osaka or Kyoto).

When is the best time to see cherry blossoms in Tokyo? Maybe it will start to bloom around March 22 and will be full bloom at around April 1-3.

Have you booked our tour yet? Unfortunately cycling tours both on April 1 and 2 are full. But we have still kayak tours both on April 1 and 2. And our running tour is also available on April 1. Please check our Tour Calendar and book the tour when you fix your schedule!

Gundam An 18m-High Transformer

August 2, 2009

ガンダムI’m not, but many male population my age are or were fans of Gundam, a transformer which first went on air as a TV animation in April 1979. The year 2009 is the 30th anniversary and the reason for this  big project  – ” Green Tokyo Gundam Project“.  This is now being held in Tokyo. (July 11- Aug 31). A “real size” Gundam was created and stands tall in Odaiba.  How “real” is it? According to the comic artist, Gandam is 18 m tall, so the one in Odaiba is definitely big and real enough to attract many people, especially th 30-40 yr old one-time “BOYS”, now all grown up but still young  at heart!

We’ll be passing by this huge transformer during our bike tour  every Saturday.

Today’s tour – experience of tea ceremony demonstration

October 11, 2008

In spite of the rain which was raining in the morning, we decided to operate the tour, as the weather forcast said it would stop around noon.

And….. it did !  Just before we arrived at Odaiba where we usually eat lunch, it stoped raining. Not so much sunshine but it was no problem. Maybe because of the weather, everywhere was not so clouded and we could enjoy cycling.

At Zojoji temple, Minato citizen’s festival were held and at one corner we found tea ceremony was demonstrated, so we went there to try it. This event was organized by International Exchange Centre of Minato ward. The lady gave us explanation in English at the same time they serve us very nice Japanese sweet and tea. Everyone enjoyed it. Thank you very much !

Group tourists from China asked Mitch, who is one of our guests, to take their photos in front of NIJYUBASHI (Double bridge) in Imperial Palace. He was willing to help them until he asked by 6 different people in the same group… ^ ^

Finally….. I had to fix the flat tire. Actually during our 1.5 year tour history, luckily we had no chance to have flat tire during our tour. But, today for some reason, we had unfortunate luck to have a flat tire on one of our bikes during the tour.

It was very hot, maybe so far the hottest day in this summer, but we looked for the shade and started to fix it. It took 15-20 min, and I could finish to change the tube and fix. Thank you my dear guests to wait for long time!
One of the participants, he brought his new camera (Cannon’s very nice one!) and shot me. But sorry, at this moment, I have no room for smiling to the camera!


Besides, the tour was very smooth, we enjoyed cycling in hot & early summer weather !
