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.

Cute Japan on the road 可愛いニッポン

This blog post is about the cute construction side road barriers that I have only seen in Japan

I am pretty sure out there is the world wide web are dedicated pages only to Japanese construction sites, but I took a few pictures of road barrier while riding and wanted to share them for being SOOOO cute. 

Unfortunately of the funniest of all I did not get a picture: A Hello Kitty themed fence that was being moved by a large construction worker. But I got in February 2019 an other Hello Kitty fence in a specially ugly construction side:

Here my selection:

Most are animal of some kind... 


But there are also some, very polite, humanly formed ones. 

Or, very correctly, Fuji shaped road cones:

I feel that I took pictures only of a small proportion of Japanese road barriers. Once travelling by car through a very long construction side, there was an entire zoo lined up at the road. Deer, giraffe, monkeys, tigers, elephants, turtles... Sadly I didn't take a picture.
