Which rent agency has a bicycle with a child seat ? Which area of Tokyo would be interesting for a young child?

Q: Hello. I am Canadian. I really appreciate your website. MyJapanese language skills are not good although I have lived in Japan for 10 years. 
We are coming to Tokyo 3 consecutive holidays. I want to rent bicycles. Which rental agency has a bicycle with a child seat suitable for 3 years old child? 
Which area of Tokyo would be best/most interesting for a young child to see? (playgrounds/parks/toilets/snack shops/riverside).

A: Hello, Stacy!
Thank you very much for your e-mail! If we can help something following our answers of your questions, we are happy.
About the rent a bike with a child seat, check our another website of the rent a bike shop in Tokyo.

Muji shop in Yuraku-cho in Ginza area maybe has it. And why don't you go to Hama-rikyu garden? It is wonderful place and you can take on the sea bus, which bound for Asakusa. 
But we really recommend without rent a bike because your child is only 3 years old. It means you need care of your child and rent a bike both in town, which is crowded. It maybe makes you very tired.

We have recommended visiting Hama-rikyu, sea bus crusing to Asakusa, and take a walk in Asakusa town. In Asakusa, espesially Kaminari mon gate, and Senso-ji temple, a small amusement park "Hana-yashiki", and others you like. 
About Hama-rikyu and sea bus, see the page of this website following please!
About in Asakusa including "Hana-yashiki":
Anyway have a nice holiday in Tokyo!                                                              (Sae) 


A: うれしいメールどうもありがとう! 私たちが助けになればうれしいです。チャイルド・シートつきレンタサイクルについては、私たちのもう一つのサイトで調べてください。もしかしたら、有楽町の無印良品でレンタルできるかもしれません。そして、近くの浜離宮庭園へ行ってみたらいかがでしょう? すてきな場所だし、浅草行きのシーバスに乗れますよ。

2013 TORI NO ICHI/酉の市

| コメント(0) | トラックバック(0)
Tori no Ichi Fair (open-air market) is a famous annual event in November on the day of the Tori (Rooster) in Chinese calendar and this event has continued to today since the Edo period.
Tori no Ichi is held at Temple of Tori (Juzaisan Chokoku-ji) in Asakusa, Tokyo or various shrines of Washi (Eagle) and many people come to there to pray for a health, good fortune and good business.

n the Edo period, Tori no Ichi was the fist fair for welcoming New Year. A poet, KIKAKU who was a pupil of the most famous Japanese poet Mastuo Basho, said for Tori no Ichi "Haruwomatsu Kotonohajimeya Tori no Ichi" (Tori no Ichi is a first important event to bring New Year.).

The day of the Tori (Rooster) comes every 12 days in November and generally, the first day of the Tori is most important. However it is said that a fire is likely to take place in the year that the day of the Tori has 3 times.

Q&A-5: Where can I get rent a bicycle with lateral  small wheels on each side of the back wheel?


Dear assistant,

Me and my wife will be in Tokyo 9days and we would like to go on some bicycle tours. We will be staying in Chuo Ward, Tokyo, 103-0012 zone. For me I just need a normal bicycle, but for my wife I would like to know:

1. Where I can get a bicycle, but with those small lateral wheels on each side of the back wheel because she can not ride so she needs some bicycle that does not get her out of balance.

2. How far in advance do you advice us to book at least 2 days for 2 different Tokyo cycle tours?

Please advice

Thank you and best regards

Luis (country=CH)

A: Hello Luis,

1) We are very sorry that we have not known where you can get the bicycle for your wife yet. Because the rent a bike shops in Tokyo usually has a normal bicycle only. Anyway the small lateral wheel what you say, which is "Hojo-rin" in Japanese. Hojo-rin is usually used for children in Japan. 

Well, very kind shop staff member maybe fit Hojo-rin for your wife. Ask the shop about it directly please. You can check up about the rent a bike shops by another our website.


2) Also we are sorry that we don't know Hojo-rin bike joins the cycle tours is OK or not. Will you find the tour for you only? It means you and your wife go on a cycling tour with the guide. We think it is maybe the best for your wife. 

Anyway if you think the cycling tour in Tokyo is tough for your wife, and finding the very kind shop is tough for you too, we have recommended the guided bus tours in English. Hato bus tour has various courses.




1) 妻はバランスをとれないので補助輪付きの自転車が必要ですが、どこで借りることができますか?

2) 2日で2つの自転車ツアーに予約すると、どのくらいの距離になるかアドバイスしてください。

A: 1) とても残念ですけど、補助輪つきの自転車をどこで借りられるか、今のところわかりません。東京のレンタサイクルは補助輪なしが一般的です。日本では、ふつう補助輪て子どものためのものなんです。すごく親切なショップなら、スタッフが取り付けてくれるかもしれないので、直接聞いてみてください。ショップは私たちのもう一つのサイトで調べることができます。

  2) これもまた残念ながら、補助輪つき自転車でツアーに参加できるかどうかわかりません。二人だけで参加できるツアーを探す予定ですか? 補助輪つき自転車なら、たぶんその方がベストと思います。

もし、補助輪つき自転車を探すのも、ツアーに参加するのも大変ということでしたら、英語ガイドつきの「はとバス」ツアーをオススメします! 楽しそうなコースがいろいろありますよ
