After a warm up ride through our "secret path" under the railway track, we ride around the Imperial Palace. The moat and stonewalls of the palace ground are in stark contrast to modern office buildings that surround the palace.

We bike across the Sumida River to Tsukishima and Tsukudajima islands. The area retains quaint old back streets and nostalgic atmosphere. The view of Tokyo across the Sumida River, directly opposite the Tukudajima, provides an unforgettable photo opportunity.
