Great guide in Jamie who made the experience fun and informative. Easy cycle and nice to get around Kyoto in a different way. Would recommend bringing a snack as we didn't get a chance to stop for any food, but water is provided.

Did the full course with Tiery. He's a wonderful guy with the best tips and great insight about Japanese culture and beliefs. Had a good time and he even accommodated our vegan lunch needs. Loved it.

mountain they are dotted across beckons hikers,
picnickers, and lovers of the outdoors. Many of the

Mostly on the pavement or through parks but sometimes on smaller back roads. Everyone in Tokyo seems to ride on the pavement so you're not in with the cars. I wouldn't say the traffic would give you any issues on the tour... More
