Kyoto cycling city tour

Kyoto cycling city tour

Kyoto City is nice and flat making it an ideal place to explore by bike.

Surrounded by mountains on three sides, the city of Kyoto sits in a flat basin making it an easy place to explore by bike. In addition you'll find quiet backstreets, wide pavements with cycle tracks and long pathways along the Kamo River which runs through the centre of the city.

InsideJapan can arrange bike hire for you to explore Kyoto either independently or accompanied by a guide. A typical guided tour will see you cycling through the Gion geisha district, through the grounds of the Imperial Palace, past traditional shops, wooden tea houses and to Nishiki food market.
