I came across this video by NHK featuring Michael Rice of Neil Pryde bikes about a cycling trip around the Tomioka and Nikko areas. I'm not sure if anyone else has seen this but it's a great promotional video about how wonderful the cycling is in Japan. I'm booked to come back out in October for another 2 1/2 week bike tour and hope to join one of your rides from Tokyo before I head out on my own to ride from Tokyo to Yamagata up the spine of Honshu.

Here's the link to part 1 of a 4 part series. The other 3 parts will be available as "related" or "up next" videos.

Nope. Doesn't work here. It says that victor entertainment has blocked it

But please leave the link up as I'll watch it using a proxy server at home.

I watched it a while back on my smart phone in Japan. I had to download the NHK WORLD application (free) from their website, and then wait till it was shown on their schedule.

What kind of hip bag is he using? And is that comfortable for long distance touring?

edit: I think I found it, it's a Mountainsmith Tour TLS.
