As I was digging around Youtube land looking at people’s great journeys here, I found this gem. It’s a bit older, made in 2010, and the video-game music at the beginning is a bit loud (just turn down the sound a little), but I thought it was great. Three guys get together to ride bicycles through the countryside of Shikoku. They take us on a pretty great adventure. And sometimes the best experiences we have in places like this is with friends. Thanks for the ride, Bobby Judo!

One thing that does not get so much airplay is how Shikoku is a brilliant place to go on a bicycle tour. The summer can be a bit too hot, but spring, autumn, and a good part of winter, can be times to ride bikes all over the place. I’ll keep hunting around for more information and programs where you can ride bicycles and get that information to you here.
