For those who are in Kyoto for a few days, bicycle rental options are many.
For those who live here, bike shops abound.
However, for those on a longer stay or those who don't want to buy, a third option exists.
Monthly rental, or bike share, is now available for 3,000 yen.
A group in Demachiyanagi called Emusica is now providing that service.
The bikes are standard mama chariot bicycles and the store is next to Demachiyanagi Station, exit 9, along Kawabata Street.
