What you'll do

It's beautiful & fresh cycling along the river where no tourists visit, and we go through local Japanese neighborhood districts, which are beautiful, cozy, and quiet. Especially hidden gems in Nara, cycling along the Saho river, only local people visit :) Fewer tourists, no cars, no stress, you'll get relax feeling from busy Osaka/Kyoto staying. And in Nara park, beside crowded and busy Todaiji-big Buddha, not many people go up to Nigatsudo hall on the hill. The view from the Nigatsu-do hall is just breathtakingly beautiful. But you've got to ride your bicycle up there. It's a little bit of exercise. We can feed the deer in Nara park while we go cycling around. I'll get the deer crackers for you :) And I'll take some lovely group photos of you while we're cycling. I'm an excellent selfie photographer! From Nigatsudo hall to the station, it's all the way downhill. It's an easy way back! ★ If it rains hard, we'll get your raincoat, and we can walk around in the park. (We ride buses between the station and the park.) ★ There is a sake brewery in town, and we can try Sake tasting if you want. (500yen Extra charge)

I was born in Nara, grew up in Osaka, worked in Tokyo, but I came back to Nara because I love Nara so much!! I've been guiding foreign tourists around Nara for more than ten years, and I love cycling very much for the whole of my life. I've done cycling from Tokyo to Nara once! I've been cycling with my daughters, one in the front, one on my back. We've always been finding quiet and beautiful bike paths, and I can take you to these places only local people go. And you can save time by cycling. After this bike tour, you can keep riding the bicycle if you wish, return it later. (I'll show you how.) I want you to enjoy your stay in Nara! Let's enjoy Nara cycling and the beautiful scenery!
