Hello everyone, it will be a while before I get to meet you all as I moving to Japan Spring next year, but looking forward to it already. Mainly using my bikes for commuting, cross country and an annual tour (usually in France) at the moment. Is XC possible in Japan? I grew up in Kanagawa during my teens and don't remember there being much countryside anywhere in Japan unless it was an officially designated picnic or beauty spot, and even out in the sticks most paths were concrete, anyone know if it is possible just to ride out and pick up a trail? I am less interested in the technical, freeride, downhill stuff but I'd love to do some XC and touring in Japan.
