If you think of a city full of bikes, your first though might be Amsterdam (which is packed with the two-wheelers, believe me) or a city in China. But Tokyo has its own great number of bike riders. In fact, 90 percent of Tokyo commuters use rail, and 30 percent of these also rely on a bicycle to reach their final destination. That's a lot of bikes, and finding a place to park all of them is starting to become a problem. One safe, eco-friendly and robotic solution has been found with a system of automated kiosks that park the bikes in an underground rotating storage wheel (check out the additional picture and video after the jump to see what we mean). The system uses membership cards that cost ¥2600 (about $29 or €21) a month.
