Your Travel Angel's plus

A bike lover who cycles all year round, Daniel will take you with him on his best cycling routes, off the beaten track. A quick and smart way to discover some unsuspected facets of the city.


From the silver pavilion in Gion, travel along the small streets full of typical and subtle charm. You will come cross undiscovered religious complexes, beautiful antique shops, maiko engaged in morning engagements or leaving their dance classes, and ducks and herons bathing peacefully alongside carp.
On the return route, Daniel is happy to accommodate a desire for any shopping trips or other good stops.

Supplement: bicycle hire (about 750 yen)
