|Tokyo Self Guided Cycle
Japan 5 days ex Tokyo
Tokyo is one of the most amazing cities in the world and certainly worth more than a day or two. There is no better way to explore the fusion
of ancient and modern worlds in this surprising metropolis than by bike, and even locals will be surprised at the array of different bike paths
From a sleepy coastal town in the early 16th century, Tokyo became one of the largest cities in the world within a century, and it is amongst
these old delightful streets and important waterways we find great and interesting cycling paths. This fun, comprehensive and little-bit-
different itinerary will help you take in all this great city has to offer – Sumo stables, character filled markets, Shogunate gardens, J-Pop
culture, Ginza shopping, cherry tree lined boulevards, neon lit nightlife centers – all by bike.
This trip includes detailed notes of rides and walks in the unique areas scattered around Tokyo that help tell her story, as well as some free
time for extra activities depending on your interests. We can also organize fully guided tours of the area and help you do some of the great
classes and lessons Tokyo offers – cooking school visits, tea ceremony classes, calligraphy lessons, martial arts sessions, festival
experiences and much more – you tell us what you would like to do!

centuries old temples, and right through the center of this great and interesting capital city.
