Hi, do you know where I can hire a bike with a child seat? My daughter is 5 years old and I'd like to hire a bike for a week.

thank you for e-mail!
We are very sorry that we have not had informations of a renting shop has the rent a bike with a child seat in Tokyo. Of course we are researching about it, because we many times receive the questions about the renting bike with child seat from foreign countries nowadays.
Anyway renting bike shop persons we know say there is maybe not the shop in Tokyo. They say the season is Japanese child seat of bicycle is maybe not so safety for the road in Tokyo. We agree with them. Bicycles usually run on the same road as cars.
They renting bike shop persons are maybe going to rent a bike with western style child seat in near future.
But need some time, because a western child seat is more expensive than a Japanese one.
And as for renting bike for a week, it has been rare in Tokyo yet.
A few of renting bike shops help you, if you are OK you rent a bike without child seat.
Yes we really have been very sorry these renting bike situations (and more!) in Tokyo.
We are challenging to change more better the bicycle situations.
Please wait for good news from us! (Sae)
