Cycling

Since the streets of Kyoto are narrow, traffic congestion occurs easily during the busy sightseeing seasons. Therefore, sightseeing by bicycle is recommended. We have various types of bicycles from standard bicycles to mountain bikes available for rent. There are also many different cycling tours with guides available to introduce you to hidden locations only accessible by bicycle. By riding down narrow alleyways or taking side trips, you will feel closer to the city of Kyoto on a bicycle.
