From the windows of the Yamanote Line train, you can watch the scenes of Tokyo zip by. It’s exciting and efficient (and marvelous, if pretty disorienting) although you can see much more on foot, or even better, by bike!
Jump on a bicycle and ride around the local neighborhoods and backstreets of Tokyo during this awesome Tokyo Bike and Food Tour. Ride a retro Mamachari bike while exploring Nakano, Koenji, and Asagaya using the healthy magic of pedal power.
See the best of local Tokyo, while weaving your way through tiny back streets and busy hubs for restaurants and shopping, as well as some of the city’s most peaceful pockets of residential nature. It’s both an exciting and relaxing way to explore Tokyo, with the wind in your hair as you zip away from the crowds, heading off down hidden alleyways.
Of course, you’ll also explore the busier areas on foot, including a stop off for a delicious Japanese lunch! You’ll also have a chance to taste some delicious local delights as you explore Nakano, Koenji and Asagaya during this fun Tokyo Bike Tour for Foodies.
