Thank you, Adam.
     I just ordered the book "New Japan Solo" from Amazon. It's about 12 years old but it should be a good start for me.
     I appreciate the heads up.
               The best to you,

Thanks, Damian - -
    I'm in the process of bookmarking like crazy. I've also got four books coming from Amazon.
    At this point my first question is: what do you consider the best (or better) time of year to tour Japan? Is the weather N to S gradient so different that a cyclist would like to avoid historically wet, cold, foggy, hot, etc., times of the year in certain parts of Japan?
     Any ideas are welcome.
     More later as I get smarter on Japan.

Greeting all - -
     I'd like to hear from anyone out there who has experience touring in Japan. I ride a Bike Friday and I'm starting to consider a three month solo tour of Japan with trailer/suitcase.
     Thanks,   Richard

     I read your post that mentioned touring Japan on a Bike Friday. I also have a BF. I solo toured, wandered really, three months in Northern Europe summer 2009. I am just starting to think about a solo trip for three months in Japan. Could we connect about your experiences, recommendations, etc.? Were you self contained? What's your cut on the best time to go to Japan?
     Anyone else with experience touring in Japan would be welcome to comment.
Thanks,  Richard
