Security, sake and sushi in the Land of the Rising Sun...

As we came through the clouds, I couldn't quite believe it was actually happening. We'd come to Japan to ride bikes?! Stepping out of the airport a kind but hectic man with white gloves took my bags and ushered me onto a bus, and I can say to this day i've never been so excited about what was ahead of us, and the simple joys of a bus ride in a distant country. For the first few days your eyes balls get a hell of a workout just figuring out what the hell is going on, and trying to ride street isn't much different. It's in and out, hit-and-run, drive-by, whatever you want to call it. It's not the easiest but the guys got some incredible stuff done while we there. And damn the sake is good... I could have made this gallery hundreds of photos deep, but here's a small selection of what I saw in the Land of the Rising Sun. Thanks Japan.
