How to Rent a Bicycle in Takamatsu

TRAVEL IN TAKAMATSU

Compared to other countries Japan has a quite big cycling community.
Since space is limited on the Japanese mountainous islands people from all age groups and social standings rely on getting around town by bike rather than car.
Adding to the space situation are many more benefits to taking a bike. For example savings in form of money, health benefits and not being dependent on taxis or public transportation.
So it is not surprising that you will also find many of the locals going everywhere by bike. Work, free time, grocery shopping, anywhere.


So if you plan to visit many different sites in Takamatsu, why not do it the Japanese way and take a bike as well?

You can rent bicycles from the Takamatsu city government or many different private rental companies long or short term.
Prices start from 100‎¥ for 6 hours and ‎200‎¥ for 24 hours.
