That does sound nice. When my daughter taught English in Japan back around 1991 she commuted by bike, and the streets were full of cyclists.
What a wonderful experience that must have been. I spent some time in Yokosuka, Japan during my Navy days in 1965-66...my ship was home-ported there. So after patrolling the coast of Viet Nam, we always returned for some R&R. And I've always wanted to go back.
WMOC 2021 will be in Japan. New age class for you. You might find yourself competitive.
