Look forward to watching another of your trip videos. Always impressed by how much time you put into these. Cheers

Perfect timing! Went through my indoor trainer bike this morning and will set it up soon. I absolutely love the videos of Japan tours. Only been there once, and gave serious thought of living there 40 years ago, however talk about sticking out like a sore thumb...lol.

Hope you enjoyed it. This one took even longer to edit due to weird behaviour of the very old action cam--now replaced with a less old one!

Thanks for another inspiring video, @waddo! Iím particularly enchanted with your elegant portrayal of waterórivers, streams, lakes, waterfalls, onsen, rain.
My stoker and I will be following some of your tracks next summer in Hokkaido and Tohoku, and your videos make us all the more eager to set off.

Hope you have a great trip: small warning: there was so much water in this video because Tohoku has become much hotter than previous years. I imagine Hokkaido will be fine but you are best off camping in Tohoku in places where you can either swim or shower (one way or another!)

In July I spent a week riding the Towada Lake area in Aomori, and the weather was idyllic. It was cool, green, and there was water everywhere. In the second half of July I spent another week riding around Okinawa and Miyako Island, and it was hotter than hell. There was a massive undersea eruption near Tonga in 2022, and it was said to have increased water vapor levels in the atmosphere by some 17%, which means hotter weather. But, days after my Miyako Island ride, I had to go to New York City for 2 weeks, and the weather was surprisingly cool and clear.
