What you'll do

Jump on board a salvaged 'mamachari' bicycle and join me on an ALL INCLUSIVE cycling, walking and food jaunt in my hometown, West Tokyo. Delve into the eclectic local neighbourhoods of Nakano, Koenji, and Asagaya as we pedal to the rhythm of everyday life on this all-season, all-weather Tokyo cycling tour. With the insider knowledge of a seasoned local, nothing's off limits as we discover the urban landscapes, offbeat attractions and enticing cuisine that gives these culturally rich enclaves their distinctive character. Test your cycling dexterity as we ride the twisting backstreets, learn about the intricacies of neighbourhood life, enjoy a tailored selection of Japanese street food eats, experience first-hand Tokyo's unique cycling culture and jostle for counter space with hungry ‘salarymen’ as we refuel for lunch. The possibilities are endless as we set off to ride a captivating side of Tokyo on our sometimes creaky, sometimes squeaky but always immaculately maintained ‘mamachari’ bikes. ** For dates and times not published or for private and family Tokyo bike tours, feel free to say hello and I'll do my best to accommodate your requirements. **
