Hey,
Welcome to the community. I'm looking forward to chatting about the bike life in Japan Smile

Have you seen Abroad in Japan youtube channel? This British guy biked 2000km last year, from Yamagata to Kagoshima.

Welcome to Bikeride. I needed your bike for my 1/2 North America continent tour when I was a kid, I did 1500 miles back then with my Peugeot; pretty much had everything on my back for months. I am curious as to how weight you were carrying there, and how the handling/stability was as I've never used a "frame" pack before.
I'm a solo rider living in a rural area so not to many people to worry about when on the road. would love to tackle some of the Japanese/East Asian landscape on a bike, but only got as far as the Arabian Peninsula/Persian Gulf areas; it was not that exciting and too hot my unacclimated body.

General Note: I work at a hospital so I recommend following ALL the safety precautions; but the main thing is staying away from others at this point , whether showing signs of illness or not (minimum of 6 feet/2 meters from everyone not showing symptoms, and as far as possible from anyone displaying any respiratory symptoms.



Be Safe out there!
