Q&Atytle.jpgQ&A-1: I 'm interested in renting a bike for one month.


Q: Hello, I'm interested in renting a bike for one month. I'm staying in Tokyo and may live in a suburb. I'd use the bike to commute to railway and subway stations, as well as in the evenings after trains do not operate (I'm a musician and am out late sometimes). How much would it cost to rent a bike for one month (about 30 days)?

If you don't rent bikes long term, can you please suggest a company that does?

Thanks, and hope to hear from you soon.

A: Hello Ross,

We are sorry that we don't rent bike service. We recommend you to rent a bike from the rent a bike shop/a public rent a bike service near station/area which you stay. About cost, it is different each shop and each public rent a bike service, because of the bike type and others.

Check another our website, which is the rent a bike shop guide in Tokyo.


Maybe as you know you can't take on railroad, subway and bus with a bike in Tokyo now. If you take on, you need rent a sport type bike and decompose and wrapping by bike cover.(Sae)

An antique dealer, Mr. Kiku-u Sahara established this garden for enjoying flowers in bloom in the four seasons with the help of other aficionados of the arts in 1805.
"Hyakkaen" means garden with hundred flowers in bloom. 

Although this is a Japanese historic garden, you may feel it is not so typical Japanese garden. I mean the collection of the flowers and plants here makes me feel some mixed cultures. According to the leaflet about this garden, many different blooming flowers and plants were collected which were mentioned in classic Chinese and Japanese works of literature and poetry.
And also I think the professional gardeners' technique is high and their passion is strong. 

When I visited here at midday in the early summer, I saw many people taking pictures, making Japanese poetry "Haiku", talking with friends at the shop, and taking a walk. Here is a wonderful and a very beautiful garden! 
You must come and enjoy a long visit!

This beautiful Daimyo's garden was made around 1691. The pond was laid from Sumida River, of which the changing of seawater level by the ebb and flow was enjoyed. Now it reproduces by pump. You have calm time here although it's very close Ryogou Station.
And if you visit Ryogoku in the early summer, enjoy the Edo-period taste festival "Noryo-no-yube" which opens on Sat. & Sun. evening. Japanese traditional music performances on stage and the green tea ceremony are implemented on the pond, and food stools open in the garden.
