I know, this sounds strange, why would I change the bicycle practically prior to starting my real ride around Japan... and well, I have to admit that the headline of this blog is totally misleading. There is though a new bike in my life:
The Dutch version of a mamachari!
And being Dutch, it will stay in the Netherlands, awaiting my return to the Netherlands later this year. Nothing to fear, dear brompton ;-)
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.
