Biwako Isshu Rental Cycle
Maibara Store

We strive to provide expert advice and service for your bicycle adventure!

It is not only enjoyable to ride around Lake Biwa, but to also have enough time to enjoy the beautiful scenery and amenities along the way.
Cycling is freedom! Since you can do what you want, you must be responsible for time management and planning your routes accordingly.
Our rental bike shop will support your Biwaichi to the fullest with expert bike maintenance, advice for navigating difficult routes, and bicycle
return options for beginners.

  • Expert Bike Maintenance.

    Our highly qualified bike
    technicians provide
    professional safety
    maintenance before you
    embark on your bicycle
    journey, ensuring a smooth and
    comfortable riding experience.

  • Beginners Welcome!

    We want to spread the joy of cycling to
    beginners! Sport cycling for the first time can
    be a little intimidating.
    We will adjust the saddle position perfectly for
    you, and teach how to ride politely in order to
    give you the confidence to enjoy your ride to
    the fullest.

Provision for No Flat Tires.

We are putting a lot of thought into avoiding flat tires, the natural enemy of a cyclist.

We utilize puncture resistant tires, layering of rim tape, and proper air pressure
adjustments to prevent flat tires so you can travel worry free.

Sometimes there is no way to avoid flat tires. To remedy this, we rent inner tubes,
tire levers, and flat tire repair kits. Instruction is also provided.
(Additional fee applies. Advance reservations required.)

1 Day Bike Rentals.

Generally, beginners who wish to ride around Lake Biwa rent our bikes for 2-3 days. In addition, we have day rental plans so that customers can enjoy cycling in Hikone and Nagahama as well. Rental days are flexible depending on the customer’s cycling plan.
