I was wondering if anyone had any experience or knowledge about how bicycle touring in Japan would be. I am looking at places for a summer 2012 tour, and Japan just seems amazing. The people, culture, architecture, landscape and overall vibe of the place seems cool.
- How expensive would a plane ticket with bike cost?
- could one stealth camp without a problem in the rural areas?
- How expensive would the city's be to sleep?
- I hear that the Japanese don't like American tourists a lot, is that true?
Any and all info is appreciated.
