Bicycle Navigation Marks and Bicycle Navigation Lines(自転車ナビマーク・自転車ナビライン)

更新日:2019年7月3日

The Tokyo Metropolitan Police Department has been advancing the establishment of bicycle navigation marks on the left side of roads and bicycle navigation lines at intersections to promote safe cycling.

Bicycle navigation mark/bicycle navigation line patterns

Meaning of bicycle navigation marks/bicycle navigation lines

They specify the area and direction in which a bicycle should travel.
Bicycles should travel in the direction the arrows are pointing. (Bicycles cannot travel in the opposite direction).
Bicycle navigation marks/bicycle navigation lines are not stipulated by law, and they do not signify the designation of a new traffic system. (Bicycles must follow traffic regulations as stipulated by the law or by road signs.)

To cyclists:
Bicycle navigation marks/bicycle navigation lines do not indicate that bicycles have the right of way or imply other legal protections for bicycles. Even if you are cycling on roads or entering intersections with bicycle navigation marks/bicycle navigation lines, you should still be very careful of cars and pedestrians.
In addition, when avoiding cars parked on the road, be sure to check whether any cars are approaching from behind you.
When entering a road or pedestrian sidewalk, be very careful of cars and pedestrians, and make sure to cycle safely.

When cycling on a pedestrian sidewalk

Cycling on a pedestrian sidewalk is never the norm. Pedestrians have the right of way, and bicycles should travel slowly and keep to the side near the road.

Even on roads that have bicycle navigation marks, a bicycle can travel on a pedestrian sidewalk

  • when sidewalks have this road sign

  • when the cyclist is younger than 13 or 70 and older
  • when the cyclist has a physical disability
  • when traveling on sidewalks is unavoidable for safety reasons.

On the sidewalk, bicycles must travel slowly while keeping to the side near the road, and come to a stop if proceeding would interfere with pedestrian traffic.

To drivers:

When driving a car, be sure to pay close attention to bicycles traveling on the road, especially to bicycles on your left when you are turning left at an intersection.
