JAPAN 2015
301 photos
There's no better way to see a country and experience it's culture than from atop 2 wheels!
I first became interested in Japan after my gran gave me a ladybird book for my 7th birthday, with a drawing of the iconic Bullet train passing in front of Mt Fuji.
But 35 years on when it came to planning a cycle trip to the land of the rising sun, I was disappointed by the tours I found online. So I set about organising a self-guided trip, convincing good friends Stu & Tamsyn to come along for the ride (it didn't take much!).

Between us, there were many things we wanted to see: Tokyo, Kyoto, Hiroshima, Mt Fuji as well as the Cherry blossom (Sakura) and something called the Tateyama Alpine Route, which opens with famed Japanese punctually on 16th April every year.
