NHK Video: Cycling Around Japan

Nov 16, 2009
Vancouver, Canada
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.

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.
