Tokyobike has opened a new concept store Tokyobike Rentals Yanaka in April, 2017 based on the concept of ‘Tokyo Slow'. A City Guide and bike rental service for exploring the best parts of Tokyo.
Tokyobike wants everyone who visits East Tokyo to enjoy the city just like a local. For the locals, the shop is to experience the carefully curated products by tokyobike and discover something new.
It is located at the old *ISEGO sake brewery site that has been around for more than 300 years and is much loved by locals of Yanaka.
Start your day with a good cup of coffee and explore some ideas at Tokyobike Rentals on how you wish to plan your days in Tokyo. Receive a complimentary travel notebook with the rental bike service for you to collect shop cards and make notes along the way from the places you visit and create your own travel journal at the end of the day. The store features some beautiful Japanese designed products from MoonStar shoes, KINTO coffee makers, SyuRo and tools from Yama no Katachi. You can finish your day by having a ‘Kaku-uchi’ drink of ISEGO selected sake at Tokyobike Rentals after you have spent a day exploring Tokyo and find a beautiful place to eat dinner in Yanaka.
The new website was launched with an extensive City Guide on East Tokyo which includes lots of places carefully put together by tokyobike to make your journey in Tokyo be one to remember.
The sake brewery “ISEGO” was established in 1706 right here where Tokyobike Rentals Yanaka now stands. The time was in Genroku, the Golden age of Edo period (1603-1868). People enjoyed “Kaku-uchi” style which translates to “having a quick shot at the corner”. More than 300 years later ISEGO still continues to be loved by the locals.
