See Kyoto your own way – rent a bike!

Bicycles are fantastic for travelling around Kyoto if you would like the freedom to explore Kyoto at your own pace.

Start exploring from as little as $40 per person.

We highly recommend a bicycle for experiencing the delights of the old capital, as the streets are narrow and highly congested in the tourist seasons. Taxi fares are expensive, buses can be tricky to navigate and there is a limit to how far you can walk…so clearly a bicycle is best!

The city is largely flat, roads are well maintained, drivers are sane and many of Kyoto’s attractions like temples and museums have bicycle parking lots.

With bicycles available in a variety of types and sizes to suit from children to the elderly, you can get the whole family out and about enjoying a fun day trip that is enriching for both mind and body.

Unsure if you can do it alone?

You will be given plenty of information including maps and road rules but if you’re still feeling a little apprehensive there’s are range of morning, afternoon or full day pre-planned cycle tours that you can join. Another great option is to travel at your own pace, on your own itinerary with a tour guide all to yourself.

Whatever you prefer, we can make it happen!
