Here’s a message from Ross Mclean of Noru Kyoto,
Kyoto is a city best explored by bicycle. Here at NORU, we took great time to curate a selection of tours that focus on showing visitors the beautiful contours of this ancient capital. We wanted to do more than just visit the busy tourist sites, and luckily our shop’s proximity to the northern foothills of Kyoto provides wonderful exploration of Kyoto’s best-kept secrets.
Our journeys are crafted on leisure, scenery, and culture, and our new fleet of 8-speed folding bikes makes our excursions suitable for people of all heights and fitness levels.
We begin with stops at World Heritage temples and shrines, and gradually make our way along cozy backstreets to quieter, more intimate Zen garden settings.
Complete custom tours are also available to those who wish to see specific sites and attractions. These can be booked as either a full or half day and can be planned with only a few days notice.
We are avid road cyclists so for those who seek something more performance and distance oriented we also provide tours of incredible routes through Kyoto Prefecture and beyond!
