What People Love about us

The perfect way to see Japan in autumn!

I can’t recommend Globalwheels strongly enough. I rented a touring bike from them for a week in late November. Gareth was really friendly, helpful and knowledgeable. He gave me some great tips for warmup routes around Osaka, as well as a couple of longer routes around Asuka, Kyoto, and Lake Biwa.


One of the best experiences I had in Japan.

Amazing experience of cycling with Ian. You get to know the city a bit and being able to cycle in a foreign country with someone speaks a shared language is amazing. Most importantly, their rentals are road bikes! All in all, great guys, great service, great experience.


Best bike rental company!!

I found Globalwheels online with amazing reviews. I emailed them and got a response really fast. They were amazing. Responded to all my questions and even switched out the stem before I got there for a shorter one. They had a range of bikes and two in smaller sizes which is what I needed. They are located right beside the train station which made picking up the bike super easy.

A trip advisor badge of excellence which this business was awarded with due to only receiving 5-star reviews.
