Hi folks,

On a different thread, I asked for info on a trip to Tohoku. I had thought of going there because I thought it would be cooler in summer, but it seems like it's not that different from elsewhere in Japan.

So... where do you suggest is the best place to bike around Japan in July-august? I have about a month and would like to avoid trains (the box thing) but ferries are fine. Mountains would be great-probably cooler and better scenery. I am planning about 80km a day on as quiet roads as possible. Leasurely pace and I want to enjoy good food and neat not too developed onsens. I really don't want rain though.

Any suggestions? If the weather is just too torrid and the trip is not realistic, let me know as well!

Arigato!
