About
Let’s ride on a bike to explore Higashiyama, the most popular area among Kyoto, where many famous temples and shrines concentrated in. This area is well-known about its jam-up, since thousands of tourists visit at all times of the year. Resulted in overcrowded buses and even if you are luckily get in, the bus may not move forward. There are so many bus services provided by several companies which makes you confused. Yet people surround you maybe also tourists like you who know little about the area. Let’s not waste your time reading maps, waiting for buses, and traffic jams. After we leave Kyoto station, we will guide you several places: Kyoto Gyoen National Garden, Shimogamo jinja, Ginkakuji temple, Tetsugaku-no-michi Street (the philosophers' path), Eikando, and Nanzenji temple. We continue pedaling to Gion area then the most busiest area of Kyoto, Sanjyo and Shijyo-kawaramachi. You can either drop the bike at the place where the tour ends or keep pedaling until Kyoto station.
