"How far by bicycle?"
140.5 kilometres to Shuzenji, so it would take all day, depending on your average speed... but certainly NOT recommended due to heavy traffic.

"Private jet with a private kitchen and toilet. Nice."
It isn't quite as luxurious as you might think; the "toilet"... depending on airframe manufacturer, is nothing more than a removable seat cushion over a commode (concealed chamber pot) typically located in the aft-most seating (nearest the tail), and privacy curtain is an OEM option.
