They then board a ferry to Fukuoka in Kyushu, Japan before cycling around the island, stopping at volcanoes, hot springs and traditional ryokans. How many mountains can they cycle up? Will Steven ever get used to bathing naked with other men? Is raw fish better for you than pickled cabbage? These and other pressing questions are answered in this cycling adventure across two intriguing Asian countries.
The second in Steven Herrick's AsiaVelo Series after 'Bento, bicycles and bathhouses', this book follows on from his successful seven EuroVelo Series books on cycling across Europe.
