From California to Japan

Living in Japan for the past 14 years coming from the US has really opened my eyes to the beauty and simplicity of life.
Here the mountains are green and flourish with intense richness, perfect for biking.
The trails for the most part are steep, rocky with lots of technical twisty sections.
The best part is there are endless trails to explore and have fun.

Out for a ride

Here is a taste of what its like coming from California and living in Japan.

Then the cities are also very interesting, lots of great new alley ways full of funky fun lines.

The history here in Japan is awesome.
Being able to ride around Shinto Shrines and feel their history as the ancient spirits encourage my ride, is pure freedom!

No matter where you lay your head at night, if you find peace in your city and surrounds you will enjoy the beauty of life!

This is where I live!

 Thank you brother! You know first how fun the trails here in Japan are. Im just lucky I can make a little blog and share those bits with my PinkBike bros! You could easily do a blog of your trail adventure moving back home, the opposite of what I did. Hahhahhaha

 I would say Japan trails and your trails in particular are the most fun I've experienced because they are a good balance between natural and shaped and they are never over ridden with too much traffic, so lines remain fresh. I would like to kick off a blog soon!

 Thank you, those are words of gold for my ears brother! We do have a great balance between different elements here in Japan. The weather here is always up and down with sudden attacks of unexpected carnage, then everything calms and the hills become filtered with organic silhouettes of flowing beauty. I would love to taste your current trails!
