What you'll do

How is your travelling plan going on? If you visit Japan, first of all, please consider to visit Kyoto. Kyoto is the old capital city of Japan, and has the history of over thousand years! So now, where are you going in Kyoto? There are many shrines and temples... But, it's just a part of Kyoto. Actually here, we have beautiful nature, unique culture and delicious food, etc. So now, I'm inviting you to the special cycling tour of west Kyoto! On the day, we'll start our journey from Hankyu Saiin station, which is the entrance of west Kyoto. It's better to start a bit earlier morning. From downtown, we are cycling to local residential area, and heading to Arashiyama. So, you can see the actual locals' life in Kyoto. In Arashiyama, we'll visit the Moon crossing bridge and Bamboo forest, which are the landmarks of Kyoto. Then, from there, we'll go deeper to backcountry side through the old historical street. On the way, we'll stop by some interesting spots such as local museum, my favorite temple, also. -The end of the street- We need a little patience of darkness... But soon, you'll find yourself to be in beautiful nature! There is a mountain village and valley, there. Then, let's spend some time by the river. I would like to introduce the history of the village, too. On the returning way, let's have a lunch together. This ebike tour will be highlight of your holidays in Japan!!

Where you'll be

Arashiyama was flourished as a noble villa, and now it's the biggest tourists attraction in Kyoto. The deep Saga has old historical town which is oriented to Atago shrine. (Monzen Machi) Kiyotaki was the post town for visitors of Atago shrine in "Samurai era". There is a beautiful valley there and many kind of animals live. Before summer we can see fireflies, in summer season we can bathe in the river, in fall season we can enjoy colored leaves..

More tips

Japanese electric bike is very easy & safe. (Not high speed. ) In Japan, we are not required to wear helmet when we ride a bicycle. So, I don't prepare. If it should be bad weather, we would go to Deep Saga and Arashiyama by bus, instead of cycling. Please keep passport with you to rent bicycle.
