Wat je gaat doen

Kyoto is famous for its kaiseki and shojin ryori cuisines, but all that wouldn't exist without the crystal-clear water that flows unseen beneath the city. We'll visit some of the best wells in Kyoto and you'll drink from the oldest—over a thousand years old. You'll also hear about the stories (some outright creepy, others lovey-dovey) behind the wells.

We'll be on electric bikes, so you'll stop to dip your feet in the Kamo River and breeze through the Imperial Palace. Then we'll go to the oldest shrine in Kyoto City, follow a river that brings in water to modern Kyoto, and visit the old entrance that a traveller walking from Tokyo would have used to get into the ancient capital. We will also weave through the historic Higashiyama district to witness what Kyoto's "water trade" is about.

The Hidden Water Cycling Tour of Kyoto is designed for those who want to get off the beaten path to understand what makes Kyoto tick. Come and uncover for yourself Kyoto's hidden spots.

We are both Kyoto locals who run experiences together. On this experience you'll meet either Gulay or Lee (most of the time it's Gulay that you'll meet).

Gulay hails from Istanbul, and for 10 years was a top-rated guide at the monuments there. Drawing on her knowledge of archaeology and medieval history, she will draw your attention to the whimsical, the fantastic, and the obscure hiding around the corner.

Lee is an ex-documentary filmmaker from Singapore who did his political science degree in Japan. He is now a Kyoto local living next to the Imperial Palace. He loves tea and drinks copious amounts of it. He also collects old maps.

Learn about the ancient capital's stories of love and hate, economic development and political exclusion. Discover Kyoto's hidden wells and water sources with us!

Waar je naartoe gaat

We'll meet at Sunny Cycle near Kiyomizu-Gojo Station to pick up our bikes, then take a relaxing cycle up the Kamo River to get to the Imperial Palace and then a 2000-year-old shrine. We'll stop at wells along the way to taste Kyoto's underground water and hear about their stories. Then we'll visit Higashiyama's historic district to witness its "water trade" before ending the tour at Sunny Cycle.

We rode during a very snowy day in Kyoto which made the experience all the more special! Lee is an awesome guide and was very knowledgeable about not only the tours focus, but on where to go in Kyoto as well as random and fascinating tidbits of information! Would definitely recommend if your in Kyoto for a short while as we felt we saw so much of the city in only a few hours!

Gulay was a great guide. She lead us along the river, which was great because I'm not much into temples. She had a high knowledge of the subject matter, and she shared her personal experiences too. Her recommendations were all spot on!
