Cyclopolitain Yokohama Cycle Taxis

See the city the smart, green way

By Larry Knipfing    - 1 min read

What is the best way to see the bay area? Train, subway, and bus are all fine. Or you could walk. But if you're all tuckered out and your dogs need a rest, I highly recommend hiring a Cyclopoitain cycle taxi, usually parked in the front of the Aka Renga shopping area. Besides the obvious ecological advantages, they're just plain fun. And because they move slowly, you have a great view of everything you pass, perched high up on your seat. You can either do a short tour, or just ride from point A to point B.

Born on Long Island, New York in 1958, I have spent the last 30+ years of my life living in Japan, and enjoying every minute of it! I especially love photography, and Japan is definitely one of the most beautiful places in the world to photograph! (Visit my online gallery) My other love is fiction writing and I have published quite a few books that take place in Japan. Fun stuff! You can find them at my Amazon Author's Page. In addition to my writing, I have mainly been working in the field of corporate training, and at the same time have done a lot of photography. *Kamakura, and now Yokohama (both in Kanagawa Prefecture) have been my home for almost twenty years and are perfect places for me: Hilly, situated on the water, and with amazing histories. The rest of Kanagawa is equally amazing and includes the great Hakone onsen and spa area.  *Tochigi Prefecture, with World Heritage site Nikko, is one of the most beautiful places in the world, and not far from Tokyo.  *Fukui Prefecture, located in central Japan on the coast of the Japan Sea, is brimming with classic Japanese culture and great natural beauty everywhere you look. I really look forward to sharing ALL of Japan's beauty and magic with all of you. Website: Contact me:
