My wife and I will be attending a conference in Tokyo in early April and would like to extend the visit by possibly exploring part of Japan on bike. Can anyone recommend a Bicycle Tour Group? Bicycle rentals?
We are fairly strong road riders.

Thanks for any feedback :)

Bicle rentals: If you want road bikes, GS Astuto in Akasaka is your best and only choice in Tokyo.

Early April is great for riding. It will be mild, with cherry blossoms out everywhere.

I don't know of bicycle tour operators, but if it's on a weekend and the weather isn't too bad most of us will be on rides. Half-Fast Cycling does several single day group rides ranging from 20-30 km (beginners) to 50-60 km (intermediate) to 90 km and more (advanced) virtually every weekend. Other people post ride plans in "Unofficial Tours and Short Runs", usually faster and/or further than Half-Fast Cycling.
