Hello Guys, i'm a french rider; i'd like to make a "long" (for me, because it might be short for some riders in this forums...) ride; around 300 kms for 3 days, from kawasaki to Fuji, and return back via Kamakura. Easy ride, with some good hills. I plan to make a stop for the night in Doshi (close to Lac Yamnaka), and a second night in Anabe (close to Odawara).I'm not in Japan since a long time, and i'll leave end of june, and i "only" had time to learn some basic words in Japanese language (so i'm not able to discuss with Japanese people, unfortunately...). I'd try to find hotel on site, but i had in mind also to ask to "local" people in the town if they can accomodate for the night. Is it possible in Japan ? It's not a money concern for me to go in hotel, but it's better to share information/ time with local people, but i'm not sure it is usual in japan. i'll take with me some "wording" & my translator book to try to discuss. Does anyone what a feedback on this ? I'd be in Dori on Friday evening (3rd May), and so if everythink is ok (my legs...), in Anabe Saturday 4th of May. Thanks for your advice !
