Good morning, need some advice

I have been living in Yokohama since April, and a work colleague from home will be on a 3 week assignment in Japan

We want to go riding this weekend and next weekend.

Any good rental shops to direct me to in Yokohama area, preferably a decent-ish mountainbike?

Thanks
HP

The only MTB rental I know near here is Grove in Kamakura.
Depending on your definition of decent, you may be happy?
Basic Specialized Hard Rocks with plastic pedals.
Absolutely nothing exciting about them, but it is a bike.

I guess it's too late, but just for future reference you can rent bikes at the ski resorts that do lift served downhill mountain biking. Fujimi Panorama for example.

You can also rent them in Hakuba, both for lift served and simply for cruising around the place. There are trails that can be hit if you know where they are. In south Nagano, Chino? maybe, a guy called Paul Chetwynd will have rental bikes for the mtb tours he does.

fwiw, near Hakuba, you can rent road bikes at Kashimayari Ski Resort. It's on the route of a couple of big organized rides, one called the Sanroku Grand Fond. Adam Cobain of Ride Japan will have rental road bikes too, probably very high end ones.
