Explore Kyoto virtually on two wheels, with glimpses of some popular landmarks, starting in front of the Heian Shrine, following down Shirakawa Canal to Gion, pedalling through some narrow streets lined with traditional Japanese houses and buildings. Cycling is a great way to discover this city that not many visitors are aware of, where otherwise many of the little details of the city go unnoticed - the quaint streets, the neighbourhood mom-and-pop shops, the corner tea houses.
