ANDY'S

WORDS

"This is my signature experience and most popular day out. Crafted to give an honest local insight into life in the backstreets of Tokyo, with a neighbourhood lunch and a handful of eats thrown in for good measure, the Tokyo West-Side Cycling & Food Tour is a nifty way to bounce around town as the locals do; on a standard issue mamachari bike."

"The Tokyo West-Side Walking & Street Food Tour is curated for those that’d prefer to hit the pavement on foot. Concentrating on a smaller but no less impressive area than the cycling and food tour, this jaunt focuses more on the ‘cheap and cheerful’ street food eats and gaining a new appreciation of life in the alluring streets of Nakano and Koenji."

"Lacking the food stops and stop-start nature of my other outings, the Tokyo West-Side Classic Road Bike Tour is all about blasting through the streets of West Tokyo on a slick Japanese chromoly road bike. Bicycle restoration is a sickness of mine and presenting guests with the opportunity to ride a piece of Japanese cycling history is the perfect way to get these gems back out into the wild where they belong."
