Cycling Tokyo…!

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!
