Why do a cycling tour in Japan?

I figure there are 10 reasons why touring Japan by bicycle is a great idea, but the first reason is the roads. I know I can be a bit effusive about Japanese roads but… Just take a look!

 Mountain roads in Northern Honshu. I honestly didn’t know asphalt could be this smooth.  It was truly unbelievable. 


Yea, there’s no bike lane, but there weren’t very many cars either. 

OK, there are bike lanes and then there are blank lanes. Sure, this may be a bit over-the-top, however, city planners in America don’t have a clue. 

Some bike lane along the bridge, huh?  

Not all of the roads are this amazing, but enough of them are to make cycling here great.
