Full description
Jump on board a salvaged ‘mamachari’ bicycle and join a like-minded group of guests on an all-inclusive cycling, walking and food adventure in West Tokyo. Delve into the eclectic local neighborhoods of Nakano, Koenji, and Asagaya as you pedal to the rhythm of everyday life on this all-season, all-weather neighborhood jaunt.

With the insider knowledge of a seasoned local, nothing is off-limits as you encounter the urban landscapes, neighborhood attractions and enticing cuisine that gives these culturally rich areas their distinctive character. Pedal the twisting backstreets, coast along the picturesque Zenpukuji River, enjoy a tailored selection of popular local snacks, experience first-hand Tokyo's unique bicycle parking systems and jostle for counter space with hungry ‘salarymen’ as you refuel for lunch.

The possibilities are endless as you set off to explore a captivating side of Tokyo on a sometimes creaky, sometimes squeaky, but always immaculately maintained ‘mamachari’ bike.
Includes
  • A simple but delicious local lunch
  • Three popular street food eats
  • One bottled drink
  • Bicycle parking fees where required
