This blog is about travelling through Japan on a foldable bicycle (Brompton) but also by train, ferry, plane, bus or any other transport, if sea, weather, mountains or the like come between me and my desire to ride.
I have tried to summarise information that could be potentially helpful also for other bicycle travellers through Japan, such as list of bicycle roads, helpful web pages etc. Once I start my ride, I will upload the actual routes taken, together with some pictures and description.

Overview Map

Here an overview map of the planned journey, due to limitations of layers in Google maps, divided in a Northern ...



... a Western ... :




...  a Shikoku ...:




... and a Kyushu part:




This is only an overview, the streets are not accurately plotted, but just what Google sensei did choose. More detailed plotted routes are available in the planning notes, linked below and the actual route will be in the summary of the ride.

On the above maps I have added:
  • in green major sightseeing spots that I hope to visit
  • in yellow places that seem interesting, but I am yet unsure if I will have time to visit
  • in pink those places that seem very interesting, but not with a bicycle. At least for me...
    • But there is a reason why this blog is called "Japan by bike (train, bus, ship and plane)
If you are interested to see, what of the above plan has been actually carried out, have a look in the  "Rides" section. Or for overview, here the links to the summaries of some regions:


Planning notes on each section of the travel can be found in separate blog posts, see links to them below or use the drop down in "Plan". However blog posts to each region, including actual travel can be found through the labels or the drop down in "Rides".
