Our Bicycles

Besides our standard 8-speed city bike, you can choose an electric-assist bicycle, MTB mountain bike, or Mini Velo small diameter bike.

Standard bicycle

  • City bike high class (“silver ring”)

    Our original “Ginrin”(silver ring) bicycle, 26-inch wheels with an internal 8-speed transmission and automatic light. These come in two sizes (medium and large) to accommodate customers of all heights.

Other options

  • Electric-assist bicycle standard

    For those that are not confident in their physical fitness or who wish to enjoy a more comfortable cycling experience we have the option of using our Electric-assist bicycle. We also recommend the electric bikes for the Kyoto Golden Tour since the route involves some up-hill sections.

  • Mini Velo small diameter bicycle

    A compact and stylish bicycle with 3 gears! This bicycle is aimed towards customers below 150cm, or for those that would prefer a bike that is easier to mount and dismount.
  • Children’s bicycle

    We have 2 sizes of mountain bikes available depending on the child’s height: 22 inches: For children from 120cm tall 24 inches: For children from 130cm tall *Training wheels are not available.
