Crank removal from Panasonic bike

Took the cover and bolt out and I canít see how to get the crank off. All my other bikes I used a crank removing tool. This one thereís just a round hole in the middle

What kind of crank puller do you have that that would even be possible?

You can start riding, but pedaling very delicately. At the first moment that you sense the crank wobbling, stop riding and walk back to the base. "Delicate" is the key so that you do not cause damage to the crank.

I had a crank like that and my tool had no problem. Seated over the bolt hole.
