Meet your small tour group in front of the Tokyo Opera City Tower. Your guide, who provides a bike and helmet for the ride, knows the best ways around the busy city streets, and ensures that everyone is cycling at a comfortable and safe pace.
Along the route, ride through Tokyo’s side streets and hidden alleys, and stop at several shrines, including the famous Meiji Shrine. If you’re on this tour during spring, you’re likely to see cherry blossoms in Yoyogi Park, too.
Other places you cycle through are Roppongi Hills, Aoyama Cemetery, Tokyo Imperial Palace, Zojo-ji, and the Shinjuku district. Stop to purchase a bento-box lunch (own expense) at a local market.
One of your last stops is at the Tokyo Metropolitan Government Building, where you take the elevator 48 floors to the top for stunning views over the city.Your biking tour ends at the original starting point.
