On the plane over to Japan, I’d read about a cycling road – ‘Shimanami kaido’. It starts in Onomichi (Hiroshima Prefecture) and via various suspension bridges ends in Imbari. I cycled only a small section of it on a rented bike, complete with basket and it remains to this day one of my best travel memories.
This clip made me smile and reminded me of how travelling makes you feel so alive. It inspires me to go back to Japan one day by bike to explore the whole of Shimanami kaido and cycle tour around the country. Visiting Japan was a dream that I worked hard to make come true. Maybe Japan 2.0 – with bikes can be another one.
