See the last vestiges of old Tokyo tucked away in the city's west side. In the quiet afternoon, we'll safely pedal along the shrines and temples lining the historic Kanda River, stopping for traditional Japanese snacks and catching a glimpse of local students playing sports. We'll see new and modern architecture in exclusive neighborhoods and innovate play parks for young children that are being studied worldwide. After visiting a few cultural gems we will take a break for lunch at one of my favorite local places. I've lived in Tokyo for 26 years so I know what's good and what people like. Don't hesitate to request something! Optional: Hot spring bath in my local bathhouse that has real hot spring water and an outdoor tub and sauna. (tattoos okay!) No alcohol during this experience as we will be cycling. After the ride is very much okay!
