In a modern metropolis that’s also an ancient city, every nook and crevice is teeming with history and surprises. This three-hour exploration of the back streets strikes deep into the heart of Tokyo. Using battery-powered bikes with an electrical assist, it’s a physically easy tour that delves into the history, ethnic culture, trivia and just plain fun of Tokyo like you’ve never seen it before. Visit the grave of Hachiko, Japan’s most famous dog. See where Japan’s first airplane took off. And stand in the precise geographic center of Tokyo. These are just some of the many things to see on this tour.
Veer away from the major tourist routes and discover the surprising appeal that awaits in the little-known crevices of Japan’s capital. This cycling tour takes a relaxed pace with a focus on discovering the little things that make travel worthwhile. At Hatanomori Hachiman Shrine in Tokyo, we will be addressed by a Shinto Priest. And if you haven’t climbed Mt. Fuji yet, you’ll have a chance to scale a miniature version. We’ll experience the rich ethnic culture of the Edo period before Japan opened its doors to the world. We later move on to the observation deck of Tokyo’s main government building in Shinjuku, with its breathtaking 360-degree sky-high vista of Tokyo, and cycle Yoyogi Park, the tranquil oasis at the center of it all. This tour can be enjoyed in groups as small as two visitors.
