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.

Kyoto / Nara - possible routes

The temple valley around Nara ⇒ 2 - 3 days, 72 km

From Nara to tea plantation and Uji to Kyoto  ⇒ 2 - 3 days, 92 km

General cycling information for Nara

  • Nara province seems to be interested in attracting cycling tourists. There is a network of well indicated cycling routes. The only thing I have not yet been able to find is a printed version of the maps, here is a pdf which has (I think) all of the different routes: http://nara-cycling.com/map/narakuru/pdf/2015/map.pdf
  • Here a screen shot of a part of it, for my use, as sometimes it is hard to open the pdf above on the mobile phone
