Kyoto Cycling Tour Project
Pioneers of city cycle tourism in Japan, sharing Kyoto experiences since 2001!
At KCTP, we know Kyoto and know how convenient (and fun!) it is to explore the city by bicycle.
On two wheels you can avoid expensive taxi fares, skip the crowded buses, and maybe discover something new in one of Kyoto's narrow back streets.
