What you'll do

Bicycle tour around the stage of "Onihira Criminal Book"-Asakusa, Fukagawa-

In the Edo period, the mainstay of transportation was boats. Innumerable excavations (canals) were stretched all over the town. Its appearance is exactly like Venice in Italy. Not only things but also people used the boat as their daily foot. Most of them were buried or culverted before and after the 1964 Tokyo Olympics. But now, rivers and canals are being reassessed as transportation routes in the event of a disaster and as places of leisure!

Edo rivers and canals frequently appear in Shotaro Ikenami's historical novel "Onihira Criminal Book". A thief who steals a piece of metal stolen from Kinzo on a boat and escapes is also chased by Onihira. Such scenes often appear. In addition, we will ride on bicycles while visiting the modeled spots such as rivers, restaurants, and bridges that appear in the story.

For lunch, we plan to have a restaurant where you can eat the famous clams “Fukagawa Meshi”.
Other things to note
Basically, only one group will participate, so we will not be together with other families or groups.

Hello!
I am Akiyama from Tokyo Backstreets Bike Tour, which runs a bicycle tour for small groups in Minowa, Tokyo.

I love Shotaro Ikenami's historical novel, "Onihei Criminal Book,"
I have read the whole volume.
The "Onihira Criminal Book" is a story about a fire bandit who catches thieves in Edo and the activity of Heizo Hasegawa, who is the leader of them. Comes out a lot.
Many of them still exist and the remnants of them are still felt.
I made my own "Onihira database" by cycling around those points and walking. With it, you can re-experience the route that Heizo and bandits actually walked around.

We planned this tour so that all the fans of "Onihira Criminal Book" can enjoy this experience.
