Having heard amazing things about Japan from friends and family over many years I decided to go big for my first trip to Japan. Starting in Sapporo, the capital of the northern-most island, I slowly cycled my way down to Cape Sata, the southernmost tip of the Japanese mainland, over the course of the year. I quickly came to understand that all my preparation and prior understanding of the country was barely the tip of the iceberg. As I made my way across the islands, I was lucky enough to see some of the most remote and beautiful places in the country, experiencing the authentic rural lifestyle as I often stayed with local people. It was impossible not to fall in love with all the amazing food, people and experiences. I’m blessed and excited to have the opportunity to help introduce others to those same feelings and experiences.

I'll never forget when…

I was cycling through a place called Aizuwakamatsu, a small city in the north of Japan, when a sudden storm hit. I took shelter in a small cafe while I waited for the storm to pass. It didn’t. After some time, the owner started chatting to me, asking if it was my bicycle parked outside. Despite the language barrier she found out that I was planning to camp in the park and instead, took me to her home where she and her husband cooked a delicious meal. It was one of those unplanned encounters that became a highlight of my trip.
