Tokyo is a wonderful city for cycling, but just beyond the concrete jungle there are mountains, parks and lakes just waiting to take your breath away. If you love that freeing sensation of cycling through traffic-free lanes surrounded by nature, we’ve got the perfect excursions for you to access on two wheels.
Our top picks include suitable options for both beginners and seasoned cyclists, whether you want to commit to a full day of exploring the city’s outskirts or just a few hours of light exercise. And if you're wondering how to travel on trains to the routes' starting points with your bike, the best option is to buy a rinkobukuro (bike bag), usually available at any bicycle shop. Simply take one or both wheels off, pop everything in the bag, and away you go.
