Tokyo bike tours: A TOUR, ASAKUSA, SKYTREE & OLD TOWN QUARTER

This tour takes you to the shitamachi and its surrounding areas including Asakusa and Yanaka, where you can still feel an old town ambience. Riding through residential areas and local shopping streets, you will get a glimpse of Tokyoites' daily lives. Tour starts and ends in Akihabara.

 

Our tour begins with a ride around the Shinobazu Pond and through Tokyo University campus. We ride through serene Yanaka Cemetery ground and across Ueno Park. We see Yanaka Ginza, a shopping street which best represents local people's ordinary life styles and the shitamachi nostalgic flavor.

Cycling tours Tokyo: CUSTOMER REVIEWS

posted by wallpedro81 on Mar 28, 2017
tags: cycling tours tokyo japan

The Fringe Tour was awesome! And I would definitely do another tour with Y&Y. They were a sweet couple that showed us a bunch of little known sites in Tokyo and even though it rained it didn't stop us :)smile They were fun, informative, helpful, patient, and accommodating. The Japanese Garden, city zoo, and aquarium were only a few of the great places we visited. For beginner bikers (like myself) the bikes might take some getting used to but the route is so safe you can take your time - I always felt comfortable. I would recommend this to all my friends and visitors to Tokyo to get away from the typical Tokyo sites and experience something off the beaten track. I can't wait to do another tour!

The capital group inc singapore: Improving fundamentals boost emerging market debt

Emerging market (EM) debt has seen a sharp sell-off since the US elections. What is your outlook for the asset class? EM debt needs growth, and in theory strong US growth (i.e. fiscal expansion) should be positive for the asset class. The uncertainties around a Donald Trump presidency are well known, especially on the global trade front, and this explains some of the sell-off that we’ve seen in EMs since the US elections. However, I think the markets may be overestimating the extent of trade protectionism by pricing in potential moves such as the North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA) being cancelled, but the important thing to note is the fact that EMs benefit from strong global growth and we should see this in 2017, especially with stabilising commodity prices.

 

 

This is particularly good news for local yields, which are around 6.5%-7%, and in some of the higher yielding dollar universe, for example Argentinian US dollar-denominated debt. EM debt is also less affected by ri

Capital group intermediaries consultants Hong Kong: Municipal and Global Bonds

• Revenue bonds tend to offer higher yields and entail risks that are typically more straightforward than general obligation bonds (GOs) for research-driven investors to analyze.

 

• Local government issuers face practical constraints on raising revenue, while large pension liabilities put a heavy strain on their balance sheets. These represent significant and sometimes difficult-to-assess risks for investors in local GOs.

 

 

 • This has led yields offered by local GOs to now often match or exceed those of the broader municipal bond market — a sea change in muni bond pricing.

Capital group emerging market tokyo japan: Global Currencies Outlook

Currency movements often produce a wild ride for investors, but 2016 was a year for the ages. The pound sterling tumbled to a 30-year low, the euro declined sharply in the fourth quarter, and the U.S. dollar staged a remarkable bull run.

 

 

What’s in store for 2017? In my view, the roller coaster won’t stop, but the ride should be less bumpy. That’s important because currency fluctuations can have a big impact on investment results. In 2016, for instance, European stocks enjoyed a robust 7% gain in local currency terms. But for dollar-based investors, currency movements eliminated all of those gains, producing a loss of –0.4%.

Capital group financial advisor Tokyo japan: Markets Can Take Time Adjusting to the Policy Fog

Much of the political news gives an impression of chaos and uncertainty, whereas financial markets have remained liquid and orderly, risky asset prices have remained well supported — and in most cases have actually strengthened — and market-based measures of uncertainty, such as the VIX, have remained low. (The Chicago Board Options Exchange Volatility Index, or VIX, measures the implied volatility of the Standard & Poor’s 500.)

The capital group inc Singapore: Adding our voice to the indexing dialogue

In recent years, the idea that investment managers can’t beat the index has become something of a truism within investing circles. The latest to weigh in is legendary investor Warren Buffett. In his 2017 letter to Berkshire Hathaway shareholders, he effectively endorsed that view by advocating low-fee indexing as the best approach for most individual investors. Here, Tim Armour, chairman and chief executive officer of Capital Group, discusses Mr. Buffett’s views and offers his perspective on the indexing discussion.

Singapore opening: Galveston Island

Beaches, historic buildings, million dollar mansions, fairground rides and delicious seafood can all be enjoyed on a day out on Galveston Island, Texas.

 

Galveston's Strand Historic District, centred around the five blocks between 20th and 25th street near the wharf, is a wonderful reflection of the architectural styles popular in the mid- to late 1800s when the city hit its zenith. You can stroll under the high canopies of many shop fronts with their wrought iron balconies perusing the antiques, gifts, T-shirts and all manner of other goods, or take some refreshment in one of the cafes along the way.

                 

We ventured into La King's Confectionery shop where glass cabinets filled with chocolates of all shapes and sizes and multi-coloured candies flank a long seating area. Here you can indulge in a soda, milkshake or float made in a 1920s soda fountain, which is served from behind a marble counter on the other side of the shop.
