Description

Turn the city of Tokyo into your playground during a guided city adventure by bike. Tick all of the capital's most enchanting sightseeing destinations off your bucket list, making stops at the Japanese Sword Museum, the Ōta Memorial Museum of Art, the Tsukiji Fish Market, and Olympic Stadium.

Details

Meet your guide at a convenient departure location near your hotel and get outfitted with a comfortable hybrid bike and helmet. Then, head straight for the Japanese Sword Museum, where you can pump past the gallery revered for its exhibits filled with some of Japan's most famous katana, or swords.

Continue to familiarize yourself with elements of Japanese culture en route to the Ōta Memorial Museum of Art. Feel the wind at your back while you nose the bike through Yoyogi Park. At the Ōta Memorial Museum of Art, see the site that houses more than 12,000 examples of ukiyo-e art, or woodblock prints made famous by artists like Katsushika Hokusai.

Following your museum-going experience, feel your stomach begin to rumble and head to the Tsukiji Fish Market, where you are welcome to treat yourself to a satisfying sushi or ramen lunch. Conclude your tour with an invigorating jaunt to see the stadium under construction in preparation for the 2020 Summer Olympics.

When you decide to take the extended tour the guide will also take you to Ginza the high-end shopping district of Tokyo, the Tokyo Imperial Palace, and Shinjuku Gyoen National Garden.
