Looking for biking partner to tour Japan
Approx start date mid jan but flexible
Approx 2-3 month duration
Have a nice tandem bike that would be a possibility also
I will be cycling southern Japan in the month of March. I will arrive in Osaka on March 1st. The current plan is to visit Kyoto, then cycle south to Kii peninsula, then with the ferry from Wakayama to Shikoku, central and/or south part of the island. Then either towards Hiroshima then across to Shimane coast to Hagi before heading to Kyushu, or straight into Kyushu from Sadamisaki Peninsula or Sokumo. After Kyushu in various directions I was initially thinking about taking the ferry from Kagoshima to Okinawa, either by stopping in Amami or directly, but it takes a lot of time (25 hours) and costs more money than flying, so I´m currently looking at taking a flight from Nagasaki. That will be on or around March 25th. I have a flight booked already from Naha back to Osaka on March 30th before flying to Amsterdam the 31st.
Work is in progress here: https://www.bikemap.net/en/u/martinkoole72/routes/created/ This is just to have a rough guideline. On the road I´m in general very flexible.
If you´re intested we could certainly meet on the road and/or ride together.
