    Additional Info
    • Confirmation will be received at time of booking
    • Expecting mothers in their first 16 weeks of pregnancy are not permitted to ride a rickshaw
    • Adult pricing applies to age 7 and over
    • Child rate (age 6 years or under) applies only when children sit on an adult’s lap without occupying a seat
    • A maximum of 2 adults per rickshaw. Up to 2 children (age 6 years or under) can ride with 2 adults (children have to ride on an adult's lap)
    • While rickshaws are able to fit two adults, each rickshaw is 29.1 inches (74 centimeters) wide, and it is sometimes more comfortable to book individual rickshaws for each passenger. For passengers of size, we recommend booking a rickshaw for each participant to ensure a comfortable ride. Passengers who do not both fit in one rickshaw but wish to participate in a tour at the same time will be required to purchase an additional rickshaw, which may not be available on the date of the tour with an English-speaking guide if not booked in advance. Those customers who do not purchase an additional rickshaw at the time of booking cannot be guaranteed availability.
    • Wheelchair and stroller friendly
    • May be operated by a multi-lingual driver, subject to availability; please ask for a driver who speaks your language at Departure Point
    • Selected starting time is not automatically guaranteed. The time will be confirmed by email within 24 hours of booking.

    • Stroller accessible
    • Near public transportation

    We had a fun ride with our Rickshaw driver Yuki. We liked his attire. He provided us with interesting information about Otaru. He was professional and friendly. We highly recommend him if you are coming here.

    A rather unique way to get around but if you can handle other tourists taking photos of you, one I endorse. The fitness of our driver (puller?)Mitsu was amazing for a 2 hour tour with only short breaks for photos. He took several photos of us in the rickshaw as well, which
