It is a rental bicycle that delivers a bicycle to your hotel.
The bicycle can be folded as small as it can be brought to the train.
Receive it at the hotel and return it at the hotel.
The price is about 1000 yen per day.
Do you want to try using it?
Please let me know your opinion."

"I don't really have a metric for how much a bicycle rental typically costs, but 1000 yen isn't something I would want to spend on a daily basis.

Also, if I was in the city, I'd prefer to walk. The metro system is so damn good there that I don't really need any other sets of wheels.

I might be more interested in renting a real, full-sized bicycle in the countryside."

There are already bicycle rental services that deliver and pick up from the hotel. In regards to it being collapsible so you can carry it on a train, for most city goers that's fairly redundant as the public transport is very good.
Can't see it catching on personally, would need to be very competitive with prices."

Bikes are available in most cities in japan for something like 600 yen a day, so you're already at a disadvantage. Most people really don't take their bikes on a train either, most park it somewhere around the station.

besides for less than 1000 yen you can get a 24 metro pass for most cities, and for sure a bus pass."

"In Taiwan, they have bicycle rental scheme where they have a rack of bikes locked up in strategic locations (in front of metro stations, parks, etc.). You tap/swipe your metro/credit card and use a bike for as long as you need. Doesn't cost much to rent. Then when you're done, you can lock it up at any other bike rack with a similar scheme.

Does Japan not have a similar system? The first time I ever saw it was in Taiwan, and Taiwan does have a lot of Japanese influence, so I always imagined that it was possible that the Japanese came up with it first."

"Thank you for your opinion. Of course, there are already such systems in Japan already. The important point of my plan is to be able to pass the bicycle at the hotel and be compact enough to bring it to the train. As you know, the transport network in Tokyo is very well organized, but I would like to create the last one mile for travelers to know more about Tokyo. In fact, travelers rarely use rental bicycles as a means of transport. I would like to make such a service that makes the stay itself an activity.";

That is 8,86 USD.

That is borderline deluded. Are you gonna deliver themselves or are you gonna have staff? If you have staff, how are you even gonna make enough to scale it up?
Also: seasonal.."

Thank you. Do you think that 8 dollars a day is expensive for travel destination activities? You can go as far as you can only go to locals. With no constraints. In Japan, sports type rental cycle may cost $ 20 per day. I think that it is expensive. It is mine to deliver it at the beginning of opening. Hopefully I also want to hire staff. Put a leaflet on an airport bus or hotel, or use sns to do promotional activities."

That has no bearing on the type of product/service you are offering. You might make it work if you charge $20 though. It might actually improve the status level of the product."

Those share bikes are all over mainland China too. I'd assume that it exists in Japan but in China, them being dumped in piles outside stations is kind of a problem so Japan might not tolerate that kind of mess."

If we are gonna talk unlikely events, then yeah. But in reality, nobody is gonna pay many millions in order to "corner" the "bicycle delivered to your hotel" niche.

>piles outside stations
that is not op's idea. He's gonna run around delivering and picking them up, at a monkey's budget, in a country that has no cheap labour."

There may be many bicycle dumps in China, but there are many merits more than that problem.
I like the Chinese society who is not afraid of anything and challenges boldly."

Bike rentals for 12 hours go for like 500 yen anon, this isn't unreasonable just unneeded since it is already a big business"

Then his idea is even worse.
Also: a quick glance will tell you that the cheapest providers are either sponsored by municipalities or fully owned by department stores; IE they are not generating profit except in an extremely roundabout way
So your post is a complete apples vs oranges comparison. 100% dragons are disappoint."

Most make profits on late fees + you coming in to grab a drink or snack after returning it. Usually each hour extra can be 100-150 yen per hour + late fee. It's not a loss leader so much it is a way to pull people in.

There are actual city owned bike rental facilities in major cities and it is like 800 yen per 24hr + 500 yen late fee, anything to keep cars off the roads since most japanese cities in the mainland south can't handle the traffic"

"I’m the OP. Thanks everyone. They are helpful for many things. But do not forget that this business model is a delivery service. That unit is not an hour, but a day. I assume they will use average for 3 days. I would like to ask your opinion more and more.";

Have you been to Japan major cities? The bike racks are all over, close to JR stations, and where they aren't the metro is(not talking JR) with 72 hour passes being 1500 yen. Outside of very niche marketing or some hook like it's also electric, not going to go far compared to the vast amount out there. When staying in a hotel last method of transportation I would think about is a bike, would appeal more to hostels. Though more and more hostels are doing bike rentals as of now. If you were to approach them with a business model of something like
>we will lease you 10 bikes for X a month
>if they break we will send over someone to repair or pick up with replacement bike while we fix the other one
>bikes are tracked via X/Y

would be fair more a reasonable and sustainable model for business"

Thank you.
I am a Japanese living in Tokyo. I am familiar with Japanese transportation infrastructure.
Existing Japanese bicycle rental service is not friendly to travelers. Although they are not familiar with geography, they are required to return to a fixed bicycle parking lot. And they are chased by the return time. Also, there are laws that Japan should not park on the street, and they have to find a legitimate bicycle park for each sightseeing spot. Do not you think that it will not spread?
More than 15 million foreigners are visiting Tokyo. A few percent of those people may want to use it. But they may have given up for the above. I believe my idea is one of solutions. I can not write about the business model in detail here, but I am considering enough quantity and support. Do you think that price is expensive? You can go anywhere for 24 hours. Keeping the bicycle, train, bus and restaurant. I think that it is a wonderful service."
