I'm happy to hear that u liked "Bungou Stray Dogs". It's one of the best animes of spring 2016. My top 3 are"Bungou Stray Dogs", "Shounen Maid" and "Tanaka-kun wa Itsumo Kedaruge".

"Shoinen Maid" is especially good, because it motivates me to clean my house. Chihiro is alwys so enthusiastic there about cleaning that he can easily influence me too. So yesterday before I started cleaning I watched the latest episode Shound Maid. To charge my self with some of his powers. So I was able to clean a bit better. I still skipped to many places and stages.. And now my flor looks kinda dusty again, because of strong wind blowing from window, but... Well I did not have master Chihiro supervising me, so it's only excepted.. I would need some training from him. :P

Anyways that bikeway is quite good. Also it has potential to become the longest bikeway.. If they connect it with the bikeway starting at the outskirt of town and going some 15 or 20 kilometers along the road at the country. To next small bigger settlement. Though that countryside bikeway isn't that good. It has some bad intersections.. Anm there was this big weird jolt under a big hill. It's like you gome down hill with high speed, and see a intersection at front. So you watch carefully left and right if there's any cars coming.. You also notice the traffic sign at other side from far that tells you that the bikeway continues there. So you won't bay much attention to front. Then when you are already at the intersection you realise it's not really intersection, but a parking lot. And look at front of you where is the bike road continuing. You get spooked seeing a ditch and.. some few guardrails to chose between.. to choose which one of them is the one you are looking for.. do I need to go left of it or right from it, because surface of the bike way is behind jolt u won't see it yet.. So yeah I really got spooked and was prepared to end up in that lake or against guard rails there. Slammed the brakes..

Well they do such stupid roads, because traffic law is against cyclists. Traffic law says that when bicycle way cross the road, cyclist should slow down to pedestrian walking speed and yield to everyone traveling on the road. So basically they don't have to bother to make the intersection safe to cross on higher speed. So most cyclist ride still on road beside cars.. Maybe next time if I ride to that direction. I will also chose the road. On road there's less intersections.

Well there are 2 types of people in this world. Good people and those that dislike anime and/or bicycles. Initially there was also third type, the smokers, but those can't even be recognized as homo-sapiens so only 2 are still there.. though I don't know how long I'm able to consider also the ones that don't like anime or bicycles as homo-sapiens. :P ^_^

Hi Hardy, nice video of the bikeway! I can feel clean air in the park.

I was just too busy to be here, but I watched some episodes of "Bungou Stray Dogs". I love it. It's thrilling and funny too!  I'm always with this group. So, don't worry even if I disappear for a while. Cheers! ^_^

Hi yoh, I hope I did not scare you away with my talk about bicycling. :D
No you can dream of motorcycles and cars too. Don't worry I won't hate you if you won't be obsessed by bicycles. :P

Well maybe you are just really busy, as you told that you will be. Or there haven't been a good chance to take cool photos, of your current town.

So then I share a video that I captured by my self from my town. The video of course isn't anything great and since I don't live in japan, there's less people who would be interested to see it. And my camera is cheap and youtube encoded the video even cheaper than it already was. Even though I had encoded it very well by my self.. Silly youtube, why can't it appreciate my hard work and a hour of the work of my computer to encode this just little over 3 minutes long video. It still had to over do it with some mere 30 seconds with choppy lousy algorithms.

Anmyways here's the video. It's a park at downtown at riverbank. Well currently there's still park, but some greedy peoples have wanted to build houses there everywhere. They say that before worldwar 2 there were buildings. The park is made by communists whe must destrroy the park and build ugly new houses there.. Hahaha, well they really don't say it so, but I just hate those people who want to ruin the parks. So I say so.
They say that they want to liven the riverside. To bting more life to there. Like what? There's enough life already now. If there were more people there using that park. It would be already too much.

Before there was such sign at other side too. When approaching this area from other side. But today it was gone. I think someone must have stolen it, since it's such cute sign. They put these out some places at spring when frogs migrate to remind car drivers to be careful not to hit the frogs with their wheels.. Actually I don't know who are the people who put these signs there. I think it's not the government. It's probably some nonprofit organization, or smth. But the sign is nicely done. I'm not surprised if someone wants to steal it.. though what will they do with it? You can't just expose it in your home where people can see it. Anyone would recognize it.

I think that Kaoru's place has quite narrow streets too, especially at winter, when there's a lot of snow piled up to everywhere. ^_^

25 Km would be a bit too much for commuting between work and home by a bicycle. Especially in city environment, without good bicycle paths. Or maybe if you got a electric bike. They make some pretty cool electric bikes these days, but they cost also too much.. and usually they are pretty heavy.. around 20kg

But at least you can walk.
Don't buy a car. If you don't have car, then u are better person.  ^_^

The age when owning a car showed your status in society is bygone. These days it is not owning a car, that shows your high status. So getting a car can't be a dream anymore. It's getting rid of car what makes you stand above everyone else. Being able to live happy life without a car is something that's worth to dream about. Not many can allow that.
Same with cellphone.
I have neither, so I'm one of the happiest person on earth.

But if there was a electric bike that weight under 10Kg -I would want it.

Welcome to Osaka anytime!Nipponbashi in Osaka is recognized as Akihabara of the west. It's a town of anime.

Google says it's about 25 km from my place to Kyoto. So, it sounds like one hour by bike, but the reality is that there will be a full of obstacles: narrow street, traffic light, people, people, people ^_^  Since I came back from the US, I don't own a car or even bike. I'm scared of driving a car in Japan because the streets are too narrow T_T  Maybe Kaoru's place is much better though ^_^

Comment by Kaoru on April 28, 2016 at 8:54
Yeah! Kyoto and Osaka always seem very interesting to me. Look forward to pictures from yoh d(^_^o)
