A solo bike expedition around Japan
Around five past eleven in the morning, another ordinary plane landed at the airport in Nagoya and incredibly enough, I was on it. Over the previous months, I had been fantasizing about a solo bike expedition around Japan. For months, it had been nothing but a dream – a quite mesmerizing dream. Even so, I had not planned any itinerary, nor did I wish to visit any particular place. At least, I didn’t – right until the instant the airplane left a mass of clouds behind it, as it flew over the soft-covered Suzuka Mountain Range. And then, at that very moment, I determined myself to set off through those mountains. I would just ride with no purpose, among the cedars and the reddish maple trees until reaching Lake Biwa’s shore. What should be next? I wasn’t sure, but that didn’t really bother me. I decided I would simply keep jumping from city to city, from island to island. These were the only rules, and this is how my journey begun.
