A Solo Journey: Cycling the Length of Japan

Last year I started my first solo Length of Japan cycle tour, but after 10 days and 540 miles I had to fly home unexpectedly. This year, I’m taking up where I left off.

Once again, I will be posting photos of my trip.  In this “Phase II Tour”, I will ride 21 days, rest a few, and cover about 1200 miles from the very north of the main island of Honshu to the south of Kyushu.

Here’s the route…
North Honshu:      Aomori to Murakami, 250 miles, 11,000′, 4 cycling days

Central Honshu:      Nagano to Mt Fuji, 180 miles, 20,000′, 4 cycling days

Kansai:     Toba to Wakayama, 150 miles, 10,300′, 4 cycling days

Shikoku:     Tokushima to Yawatahama, 240 miles, 14,200′, 4 cycling days

Kyushu:    Beppu to Cape Sata and Ibusuki, 325 miles, 27,200′, 5 cycling days

  2. Hi Robert,
    Good to hear you pick up the thread of your trip. I’ll be following your adventures yet again.
    When do you leave ?
    We have a family of four on two tandems leaving on Sept. 30 from Wakkanai riding all the way south, partly following your route. Maybe you ride into them 😉
    All the best,


  3. Have a wonderful eventful/uneventful ride, Robert!


  4. Looking forward to reading your posts and seeing photos.
    Wishing you safe travels with sunny skies and tailwinds.


  5. Best of luck!
