I have just gone through with this itinerary and it was good! (09.11.2017)

 Distance: 7.2 km and 29 min by bicycle

How much does it cost for rent-a-bicycle, and can I save money by buying 1-day ticket for bicycle?
Based on docomo’s rental bicycle, it takes 150 yen for first 30 min to ride and takes 100 yen for additional each 30 min. In the meantime, they propose 1-day ticket for 1500 yen. You will see even though you use it about 7 hours on end, 1-day ticket does not pay for, and you need to looking for place to purchase this ticket (limited number of places compared with cycling ports).
We will recommend you to buy a ticket every single time (offical webpage for docomo rental bicycle, English)
