Cycling is a great way to see a city and understand how al the different parts connect to one another. You begin to realise how close places are when you are cycling instead of using the underground/metro systems. Many years ago on one of our first trips in Tokyo we spent 30 minutes by train to get to a block around the corner from where we were! At the time our friend laughed when explaining we just had to walk! Still it makes for a good story.
This time round, on Saturday we spent time cycling with our Brompton bicycle friends.
I will acknowledge it was great to just follow someone else and not read a map.
We stopped off at a shop which sold pickled goods (sorry if I’m explaining it correctly). The owner enables you to try the product before you buy – so enjoyable & tasty!
Great looking public toilets!
Underground bike parking..
We were also taken to a monja restaurant – well truthfully a whole street full of them! Amazing! The best part is we didn’t have to worry about attempting to order as our friends did this for us – so wonderful, thank you!
Let’s not mention the notice on the bikes after when we went to unlock them!
Yes… everyone taking photos!
It truely was a great day on the bike – we loved it!
