A good way to explore Tokyo is by bike. Tokyo Great Cycling Tours take you to the major tourist spots in the city. The tours, especially designed for foreign visitors, last six hours and require a minimum of 10 persons. It’s a flat course and there are plenty of rest breaks, so you don’t have to be in Olympic condition.
There are two routes – the Tokyo Bay Ride (every Saturday and Tuesday) and the Sumo Wrestler’s Ride (every Sunday and Thursday), both costing 10,000 yen, including a boxed lunch. After the tour, you can enjoy a foot massage to relax and refresh your muscles and body so you can be up and running the next day. http://www.tokyocycling.jp/
Another option is Tokyo Rent A Bike, located near Nakameguro Station. For just 900 yen, you pick up your bike in the morning between 10 a.m. and 1 p.m., and return the bike anytime by 8 p.m. You don’t need to worry about getting lost. They’ll give you a road map for Tokyo that suggests the best routes for cycling in and around Tokyo -- to Roppongi, Yoyogi Park, Yoyogi, Harajuku, Shibuya, Ginza, Hiroo, Daikanyama, Nakameguro, Meguro, Shinagawa, Imperial Palace and other areas. Guided tours for Tokyo are also available and English is spoken. Don’t forget to bring a photo ID (passport/driver’s license). Payment is in cash only. http://www.tokyorentabike.com/© Japan Today
