Cycling the length of Japan

I'm planning to cycle the length of Japan this summer. A solo, 2000 mile ride with 132,000' of climbing. Has anyone done this recently and if so, is there any advice?

I haven't, but would be very interested if you blog or report your trip with route mapped out.

I can't help with advice, but I would also be very interested in following your journal or blog. Are you planning one?

Enjoy your fantastic journey!

Depending on how your speaking ability is, the amount of difficulty you'll have may vary.

You planning on hitting campsites, minshuku etc.?
