Description

Spring is arguably the best time to travel in Japan, and if you are in Tokyo during the cherry blossom season, make sure you secure an electric bike for your own exploration of the city’s best “sakura” spots.

Details

Tokyo has an excellent city share bike service, with over 6,000 high-end electric bikes available from 580 ports around the city. There is no better way to get a feel for this very safe megapolis and enjoy the cherry blossom season than to ride its many parks, back streets, and broad sidewalks with the wind and sakura petals blowing in your hair. In 2020 in Tokyo, cherry blossoms are forecast to flower on/around March 19, and to be in full bloom on/around March 27. 

We solve the two biggest drawbacks of a share bike, which is competition for bikes at the popular locations and finding a bike that is fully charged. Our pre-booked service guarantees you get a fully charged bike, waiting for you at one of our designated pre-booked sites, along with options such as helmets and recommended riding courses.
All you need to do is pick spots where you’d like to enjoy Tokyo’s cherry blossoms and you are ready to go on your spring adventure.

Some of the well-known cherry blossom spots are:

Ueno Park
Yoyogi Park
Inokashira Park
Meguro River
Shinjuku Gyoen Park
Hamarikyu Garden
Rikugien Garden
Chidorigafuchi Moat

Check out our Japan Travel Bike page for more information on the Bike Share service.
