Okayama Circle Okayama castle and the back alleys on a unique bicycle made in Okayama.

Last updated: 02 September, 2020

Ride on a “Walking Bicycle”, a first-of-its-kind, a new style of transportation developed in Okayama!

The Walking Bicycle is faster than walking, has greater stability thanks to its three wheels, and is electronically assisted. Also, since your point of view is higher than a normal bicycle, you can see the city from a different angle than usual. A local guide will teach you how to ride, so beginners can also easily join too. When you get tired, you can take a rest at a famous Japanese confectionery shop which is next to Okayama Castle, or a popular cafe.
