The shop staff was incredibly kind. Due to high temperatures during the central hours of the day, we were looking for a different rental schedule (afternoon, evening and first hours in the morning) and they were flexible and could arrange that for us. ありがとうございました!

The bikes were in great condition and the prices were very reasonable. The gentleman who rented out two bicycles for me and my girlfriend was very friendly. He gave us free sparkling water when we returned as we seemed thirsty. We would definitely come back to rent from him if we were in Kyoto longer.

The woman in the shop was very friendly and helpful! Although it says on the website to bring the bike back by 5 she was happy to let me have it up until 7 which was useful. The bike itself was high quality and in great condition. I had a really fun day and managed to see so much more... More

Staying in City Center

Neighbourhood Profile
City Center
No district of Kyoto is quite as representative of its blended nature as the City Center. By day, the covered shopping arcades along Kawaramachi and Shijo Street bring deal hunters and fashionistas out in droves to peruse the clothing, accessories, gifts, and home goods offerings. When it grows dark, the City Center is a hip spot for nightlife, alive with bars and clubs. A trendy culinary scene and an abundance of local watering holes give the Center its youthful vibrancy. In contrast, the quieter areas of the City Center seem a world away, shielded from noise by the foliage of the public gardens and zen spaces surrounding the area's shrines, castles, and the Imperial Palace. These ancient and sacred spots are seamlessly folded into the scenery, providing a respite from the energy of the city, but close enough to put you directly back onto the pulse of the city when you're ready.
