We recommend our "Electric power assist bicycles"Because... 1:It's as easy as riding a conventional bicycles,but easier! 2:You won't run out of breath when cruising uphill. 3:It's quiet and environmentally friendly compared with motorbike. 4:It's FUN!! 5:All "Electric power assist bicycles" are JAPAN products(YAMAHA and Panasonic). 6:There are many sights to see in Kyoto. However,there are many uphill slopes,too.*"Electric power assist bicycle" :While the bicycle is being pedaled,electric power assist is working.

The shop staff was incredibly kind. Due to high temperatures during the central hours of the day, we were looking for a different rental schedule (afternoon, evening and first hours in the morning) and they were flexible and could arrange that for us. ありがとうございました!

is a hip spot for nightlife, alive with bars and
clubs. A trendy culinary scene and an abundance of
