Despite being one of the largest car producing nation, Tokyo is well known as a bike-friendly country where commuters can stroll around the city safely. On a normal day, the busy streets of Tokyo would be filled with bicycle commuters going to work, school, or just going around town.
WeFXD visited Tokyo last June as their last stop of their Japan tour after their Osaka visit. Going around and discovering the city on their track bikes, the group met with some locals; the guys from Tempra Cycles, a group of Tokyo bike messengers, and a group of fixed-gear freestyle riders. Among the people they met were FGFS Bombtrack and Chrome Industries rider Marco YH, and the owner of Tempra Cycles, Kenta Kobayashi.

During the day, the group went arount and toured the city; discovering Japanese food, going around the famous Shibuya Crossing, and other tourist activities. During the night is when the fun starts. From bike drag races and night sprints, to FGFS playgrounds, the Japanese start their fun right after work hours. WeFXD shows that the best way to go around and discovering the city is through bicycles.
