White Day Ride Tour

“White day” is a day to return gifts to those they received chocolates from on Valentine’s day.
For this White Day, what are you giving to your special someone? How about getting on a Tokyobike and searching with us?
Get yourself on a Tokyobike -bikes designed for exploring the city- and join a riding tour of the Tokyoʼs best chocolate shops.
This is a two hour long short tour the includes an explanation of cycling and traffic rules in Japan.
After the tour, participants can feel free to keep on riding, at no extra rental cost! (Regular whole-day rental is ¥2,500)
Head to spots youʼve missed on the way or places on your list! If youʼre stuck wondering where to go, our tokyobike staff also have some recommended spots. Either way, you can take the bike for the whole day, until 10PM.

The meeting spot and starting point will be at the hotel, right in front of Shinjuku Tocho, THE KNOT TOKYO Shinjuku. No matter if you are staying at the hotel or not, anybody can rent a Tokyobike here. (When returning the bicycle, please return it to THE KNOT TOKYO Shinjuku.)

In this chocolate shop tour, the route will move from THE KNOT TOKYO Shinjuku (TKTS) → Daitabashi → Yoyogi Hachiman → Tomigaya. We will check out three chocolate shops, each with their own unique characteristics and each widely-loved. Apart from these three spots, on this tour weʼd like to show you some of our favorite bakeries and lifestyle shops, but depending on the time. Stay tuned to find out the exact shop names and route specifics on the day.

After we have gone around to all the shops, we plan for a coffee break at a cafe (where we can BYO chocolate!) where we will also end the tour for the day. Feel free to stay here, munch on your goodies while planning for your next stop. And of course, our Tokyobike staff will be there to share some of their recommendations.
