【Report】Lomoride 2020

Oct 30, 2020

This event is on November 14, 2020 and combines the joys of exploring Tokyo by tokyobike, whose bicycles are customized for this city, with the vintage experience of photographing Tokyo with a film camera.

The cameras are supplied by Austrian camera company Lomography, which keeps the passion of film photography alive. Join a guided bike tour of Tokyo’s Shibuya and Shinjuku neighborhoods, capture the moment by snapping photos as you explore, and then share your best shots over a snack and drink at THE KNOT’s MORETHAN BAKERY.

Maximum 10 participants. Early reservations are recommended.

If you would like to shoot with the special LomoChrome Metropolis – Tokyo Edition film, we will have some on the day for an additional charge of ¥500. Please bring the correct change to ensure a smooth process.

Booking Site

The tour will start at THE KNOT, where you can rent a bike from tokyobike, irregardless of whether or not you are a staying customer.

Lomography’s cameras are small enough to fit in the palm of your hand. Don’t think! Just shoot!

A Lomography staff member will be present to teach you how to use the cameras, and some tricks of shooting with film.

We will ride to a few photo spots, to give everyone a chance to capture their own Tokyo on film, and you will get more free time after that to explore and shoot.

Once you finish shooting your roll of film, we will take it for developing. During this time, you can buy an additional roll and explore some more should you wish. During this free time, you can go wherever your heart takes you, or visit places recommended by THE KNOT and Lomography staff.

After the free time, gather with a tea and snack on the second floor of THE KNOT to see everyone’s developed photos.

After the event is over, feel free to hang out at THE KNOT, chat about the ride or grab a coffee, tea, or cocktail at our bar space.
