We did this on our first full day in Tokyo and it was an amazing experience and would highly recommend this to anyone looking to get an overview and understanding of the Tokyo landscape, an insight into Japanese culture and to learn interesting facts and history about Tokyo and Japan.

Gaku, our guide was awesome! He was very knowledgeable, kind and funny! He ensured that we were always comfortable (even offered additional gloves when a member of our group had cold hands) and kept a good pace for everyone on the ride. He gave plenty of information at each stop while always answering any question we had with a lot of detail. Gaku also always ensured we spent more than enough time at each landmark spot and we were never rushed.
Gaku also asked us if we wanted our photos taken during the ride and we did. The photos are great and he took plenty! He sent them through email after the ride.

The ride itself is over 30km and takes you to major landmarks around Tokyo. This may sound like a lot to some but the ride overall was very leisurely and mostly flat surface riding. For our lunch Gaku took us to a local grocery store for us to buy some delicious food (ask Gaku for delicious recommendations).

For anyone coming to Tokyo this is a great introduction and a must do!

The best way to get to know a city is by bike. Today's cycling tour of Tokyo is a good example of this. It was my first time riding a road bike, and it felt and looked light, with narrow tires but a large wheel diameter. The guide chose the right size and height for me, as well as a helmet and gloves. Our guide, Gaku, is a Japanese and professional mountain cyclist, so he could turn around and take pictures of us when cycling. With his body finely balanced, he not only took pictures but also looked at the footage, not worrying about the road ahead or holding the handlebars. The whole route is clear and covers many attractions, as well as many shrines and parks that only locals know about but are not on the map. The scent of soil and trees wafted through the ginkgo leaf-covered roads as I cycled through them. Tokyo in winter was so beautiful, with its vast array of landscapes. We also shuttle through many alleys, like the anime movie, very gentle uphill and downhill, intricate telephone poles, narrow roads and passers-by in a hurry. It was great to have a tour guide, who would explain the history and features of the site and show photos of the night scenery. I also learned the difference between a shrine and a temple, although most Japanese never distinguish between the two. The guide also chatted with me, and we chatted about the food in Hong Kong, my plans in Tokyo, and so on. It was a very comfortable chat. He listened carefully and spoke carefully. When I passed Yoyogi Park, Imperial Palace, Ginza and other places, I thought it would be perfect to ride through them. To truly feel and appreciate the street scene, but not too slow, delay time and suffer a lot of cold.

This was the most amazing tour imaginable. I can't even begin to express my gratitude. Gaku ist the kindest guide you could wish for, who will adapt the tour and it's pace accordingly to your needs and wishes.

As a professional cyclis, he knows his way around the city so well, you will feel in very safe hands. Every stop only seemed to be a 5-10 minute cycle apart, so the tour was the perfect mix between experiencing a variety of interesting sights and having nice cycles around Tokyo's streets in between. Gaku made sure to stay off the main roads as much as possible, which made the tour very calm, and easy to look around you and take in the scenery all from the saddle.

We went from little neighborhood shrines to the very big ones such as Meiji Jingu, learned about Japanese religions and customs, experienced famous shopping districts, the emperor's palace, tried some delicious treats along the way and had obento lunch by the Tokyo bay. The day ended with the most amazing top view of Tokyo, where we even caught a glimpse of the sunset.

This tour was not only packed with intricate information but also very personal and adapted to me as a person. We managed to cycle around the whole city, all while having all my questions answered along the way, including the wider contextual history attached to all the spots. Any questions I had, Gaku went out of his way to find out exactly what I wanted to know. I was incredibly impressed by his dedication to offer the best possible experience for his attendee. It's definitely not something to take for granted, and in this way, I just wanted to say how much I appreciated this!

Thank you so much Gaku for such an incredible day. I felt like I experienced a month's worth of sightseeing in just one day, while having fun and feeling very well looked after. I would 100% recommend this tour!!

Gaku was an amazing guide, providing so much of the cultural and historical facts of each site we visited. He is knowledgeable, pleasant, attentive, great communication skills and a great bike rider and photographer.
This is a must do tour! Don't worry about the length (approx. 6 hours) - you will be visiting and learning so much that time will fly really quickly. I cannot recommend this tour enough to someone that is able to ride a bike and not afraid of riding on the streets.

Gaku-san, the Tour Guide, is the owner of the Tour Company and his personal touch in ensuring excellent service was very evident. He was endearing, friendly and very helpful. He ensured safety of the group at all times and explained the sites and spots very well. I would definitely recommend this tour for all tourists wishing to see Tokyo on a cyclist’s point of view!

Having never cycled on the road and not exactly at my fittest, I was initially apprehensive about joining this tour. Gaku however was a wonderful guide, briefing us sufficiently on what we would need to know about road conditions as well as the time needed until the next stop, and I felt extremely safe following his lead as he expertly navigated the roads of Tokyo. Gaku was also very patient, always looking out for and checking in on each of us (there were five of us) throughout the tour. The places he brought us to included shrines little known to tourists, quirky sights as well as an observatory deck with a splendid view of Tokyo (which, lucky for us, included Mount Fuji at sunset!). He gave great introductions on each attraction we visited, and provided us ample time to take photos and to ask questions we might have. One of the highlights for me was the local-style bento lunch (bought from the many affordable options available at a supermarket where we stopped) which we had before a lovely view of the bay. This biking tour was definitely the highlight of my trip, and I highly recommend it to anyone visiting Tokyo!

We weren't exactly sure what to expect with a bike tour in Tokyo. Both my husband and I often take week long bike tour vacations in foreign countries on "back roads" (non-city roads) and at home we tend to stick with safe bike paths. In the end we had nothing to fear, mostly because Gaku was truly an amazing guide and safety was top priority. We cruised through the major districts of Tokyo, stopped at various historical and modern sites, and picked up food for a picnic lunch. Though some of the major intersections appeared hairy, Gaku deftly maneuvered us though. Kudos to the very courteous drivers in Tokyo as well. This is definitely a trip I would recommend to others who are comfortable on a bike and want to dive deeper into area of Tokyo not easily accessible without having to use public transportation or walk 20 miles. We done, Gaku!

Gaku was a great guide - my son and I really enjoyed this very personal tour around central Tokyo. The group was small and friendly and we rode 32km at a leisurely pace with lots of stops at interesting sites, including finishing off with an amazing view from the Observation Tower. Gaku gave great explanations at the sites and always kept us informed of how long till the next stop, and we had our own map outlining where we were going and where the stops were. The riding is easy (nearly all flat) and mostly on quiet back roads and foot paths, but you do need to feel comfortable riding in traffic - there weren’t many sections of traffic and they didn’t last too long - certainly it felt much safer than riding on the roads in Australia with the cars seeming to drive with care around us. Overall, if you enjoy riding and want to see a lot of Tokyo in an enjoyable way I would definitely recommend this trip.

Gaku was an excellent biking guide. We biked from hidden spots to famous tourist landmarks, which let me learn about the history and culture of Japan. He was good at ensuring our safety, helping us to take pictures on the road, and answering all our questions. It was enjoyable to explore central Tokyo by biking and I would highly recommend this experience. Gaku is the best!
Also, biking in Tokyo is much safer than in NYC.

Such a wonderful day biking the streets of Tokyo with Gaku! There is no better way to get a sense of the city and really feel it’s energy than on a bike. We saw so many cool places that are not in the typical guide books and Gaku was a wealth of information. He was very careful and I never felt concerned for my safety. Would definitely recommend this trip for anyone visiting the city!
