Firstly, thanks to OwenJames for the confidence boost.

My name is Angelo. I came down from Aomori, stopping at Toyama City first and then taking a train to Kasukabe, Saitama.

I am currently writing to you all from Fujisawa City, Kanagawa.

This is my first long road trip, although I have done plenty of day rides.

My goal is Kita-kyushu. From Tokyo, I will continue into Shizuoka to Nagoya, then to Oosaka and into Shikoku where I want to travel the Shimanami (しまなみ海道)from Imanami, Ehime to Onomichi, Hiroshima. From there, continue west to Hiroshima City, Yamaguchi City, and finally Kita-kyushu (if I have time Fukuoka).

Aggressive, I know. Especially for a first timer. Any recommendations?

Ill be honest, I dont have maps and am relying on the GPS on my phone to get me around. I have back up energy for those times I wont see civilization for a day or two...

I`ve done Wakayama ~ Yokohama (coastal) and a half lap around Shikoku. If you take the coastal route, I can offer some suggestions.
