Discovering Tokyo by bicycle is a fun way to explore the city offering you a wider range of sights and sounds that might otherwise be missed if you are traveling on other forms of public transport.

Bicycle Rental Usage

Bicycle rental is becoming more common in Tokyo, with many hotels and private shops offering this service. Make use of the community bicycle sharing scheme—pre-registration required—rent a bike in Shibuya and Meguro or explore the Okutama and Ome area by bike.

Bicycle parking

Make sure you are aware of local laws regarding cycling in the city. As a general rule, keep to the left, keep your speed down and be aware of pedestrians. Park your bicycle in a designated parking area. If you park anywhere outside of these areas, there is a high chance that your bike will be impounded.
