They're more scenic + comfy and you'll have more room to maneuver.

I drank a fair bit of sake but it just doesn't scratch that ice cold refreshing beer itch for me. I think being vegan would be really difficult, especially with the language barrier. I mean you'd at least be missing out on pretty much all the food, but you'd survive I'm sure.
Here's my original route. Unfortunately because it took longer than I'd hoped to get through the alps I had to cut out pretty much the entire Kyushu portion. I took a ferry from Kitakyushu back to Osaka, and rode from there back to Tokyo to fly home. The only train I took other than subways to get around cities on my rest days was from Nagano to Jigokudani Monkey Park. It was cozy as hell."

Taking trains in Japan is unfortunately, not super convenient for cyclists. Unlike in the states where you just pay a little extra to bring your bike on the train, in Japan you have to disassemble it and put it in a special "rinko" bag. As much as I would have liked to take the train at some points of the trip, it was too much hassle and expense to get a bag, take the bike apart to fit, haul all my bags separately on the train, and pay for the trains themselves. Then again, they don't derail like amtrak trains, so it's probably worth it. Here's a pic of a Japanese tourist showing me his Panasonic breakaway frame, used to make train travel easier."

Akagi, but unfortunately the bath was closed for the evening, so I decided to push on in the rain. Once I left the main highway for a more scenic road, the pitch black, narrow winding road and driving rain were too much to continue, and I felt I was missing out on the scenery, so I pitched my hammock in the trees by a river on the roadside. In the morning I woke up to this view, on the top of that hillside there was a train track overlooking the river below and the commuter trains would periodically roll by as I cooked breakfast.";

Day 3 I was riding from Midori to Nikko. Once I got to Nikko I started heading north to Mt. Chausu, but on the advice of a wise restauranteur I decided to head for Lake Chuzenji and cut Chausu from the route to save time and not freeze my ass off. (I had lost a day because the airline fucked up getting my bike on my flight, and getting through the mountains was taking significantly longer than expected)

Although I really wished I'd had a lighter rig, I also really wished I had a heavier sleeping bag. As it was I could do with about 10 degrees overnight, which made sleeping on top of mountains really difficult to impossible. If I ascended that day, I had to be sure I could get down the same day. Made for a somewhat stressful experience later when I got into the proper Japanese Alps."

Just join the mileage program for any airline you like and fly them and their partners. Also get a credit card but it can be risky due to APR and Interest. I have AAdvantage because I live near a AA hub and I fly AA's partner Iberia, so I get lots of miles and I use my credit card too so I have about 25K miles at least. It's good enough for a round trip from MIA-ORD on a 767 in economy but I want 60K minimum for Buenos Aires, Sao Paulo, or Tokyo"

Length of Japan I imagine? Seemed everyone I met who was touring was familiar with it, and the free campsites map.
Oh I went to some onsen, just not that particular one as it was mid day. Shirakawago was probably my favourite.
I'd probably take a rinko bag the next time I go to Japan, I just couldn't afford one, or to take the trains too much.

It was super easy for me to bring my bike, just boxed it up and brought it as a checked bag, but you need to check your airline's policy.

You can pretty much camp in any park, but there's a free campsites and hot springs guide you can find easily if you google it and plug into google maps"

It's somewhat difficult but in many cases people speak a few words of english so you can get by, and some speak well enough you can actually have conversations. I actually had a really fun time in bars having conversations via google translate though. As for finding things, it depends on what you're looking for, but some simple phrases like "arimasu ka" which is "do you have" are super helpful. Restaurants are easy to find (when there are any,) same with convenience stores. Sometimes it was hard to find bike shops that were equipped to deal with anything but Mamacharis, but I'm a mechanic so the only trouble there was finding tubes or pumps with gauges to get my pressure topped up right."

Man if you're going that long and you have the extra bread go dynamo hub, fuck the solar panel. It works pretty decently if it's getting direct sun but if it clouds over even a bit forget about it, plus it's a hassle to keep it rigged up, out of the way and pointed at the sun. Great option if you can't afford a dynamo though, just make sure to pair it with a power bank, or ideally 2 power banks so you can always have one charging. It's an Anker one from amazon btw, not sure if there are better ones in the same price point but I can't imagine expecting too much more from it."

Gonna start in the north of Sweden, head down Finland and more-or-less follow the Iron Curtain Trail to Istanbul or Athens, then spend winter hopping around Mediterranean islands and north Africa, then in Spring head to Cadiz or Malaga and head up Spain, through Barcelona, then to Annecy, Milan, Dolomites, Austria/Salzburg, Munich, then back down through Switzerland and head straight across the middle of France for the west coast. Up to the north coast; Brittany, then head east again along the coast visiting WW2 sites...dunno where I'll finish. Still working stuff out.

I think in general the people are, I think we just had an isolated bad experience in that one town. We were only in Portugal for 2 days or so.
Spain and the Spanish were great, but when I got to France it got even better. They respect cyclists. I was planning on following La Velodyssee, a 1200km cycle path from the border of Spain to Roscoff, where I got the ferry, but in the end it was so clogged with dawdling tourists and it wound through every park, cafe, restaurant, campsite, beach, toilet and attraction in the way that I just went on the roads. The cars were super respectful, and the further I got from the tourist region the better it got.
As for time, being able to afford it...I think a lot of people use it as an excuse. Not that you are. But you'll adapt your spending to suit your budget. On that Spain/France trip I was spending about €5-6 a day, average, and I wasn't being super careful."

About 1/3 of the way up the pass the headwind was so strong I could barely continue, so I decided to stop and cook some instant noodles, which was the only food I had.

It was getting to be quite cold up there, and of course because of the strong winds I had a hell of a time lighting my camp stove. After about 5 minutes I finally managed to get it burning, but then as I was going to pour water into my frying pan I knocked the bottle over and put the stove out ;_;
Immediately afterwards I got a nosebleed from the elevation change, so I was sitting on the side of the road eating dry instant noodles and trying to stop my nose from bleeding, it was definitely one of the most miserable moments of the trip"

I had to descend from about 1300m to about 450m elevation from Sugadaira to Nagano, and a thick fog had settled in on the mountain. It was too cold at that elevation to spend the night, and I was fixed on making Nagano city that evening anyways, so I began the descent down the huge fucking pass into the city
pic related was the visibility at the time"

With the equipment I had, yes.

Was I supposed to pull a warmer sleeping bag out of my ass? Or kill a wild boar and climb inside it?"

If by unprepared you mean I deliberately chose to carry a lighter sleeping bag to save weight and was thereby limited to camping at lower elevations, yeah. Hammocks are also exposed to the air on all sides so require warmer sleeping bags than tents.

If I did it again I think I probably would bring a slightly heavier sleeping bag but ditch the front rack / get larger panniers for the back. In any case, I couldn't afford to spend money on any of that shit before I left, so I did it with the rig I did."

Well, nicely done either way. One of the reasons I love touring is that it's much easier to carry heavy/bulky gear than on foot, so flirting with the snow line is rarely an issue. With that said, I'm sure your kit was much lighter than mine, which has its own advantages."

Yeah even as it was the weight was pretty brutal climbing the mountains there. It's a really hard balance to strike when you're touring. Last trip I did felt like I didn't have quite enough stuff / space, this time felt like slightly too much."

You'll still need a bag for it to take it on the train I think? But should be easy so long as you have one. I don't know if I'd even bother. Cycling in cities in Japan sucks, you might be better off just using local transit and walking if you have the JR pass anyways"

There are almost never bike lanes and everyone rides on the sidewalk. You can ride on the street but with the heavy traffic and lights it's not incredibly efficient. Sidewalks are so crowded a lot of times you end up just getting off and walking"

Is that large cities only? I was going to big cites like Tokyo,Osaka,sapporo and Nagasaki. I was going to smaller places like numazu,hanno,nara,oga and other random places.I could leave my bike behind if the place has a population over around 250,000."

places like Nara are total tourist traps so near the attractions it's super crowded and not fun to ride but otherwise a bike would be useful yeah. Nara is pretty rural IIRC"

I'm a teacher, so I had to go during summer holidays. Basically the worst time to go. I think it was all of July and then a week or two into August. Took me 6 weeks in total.
Nah, I reckon out of the summer holidays it'd be a lovely route - it was only "bad" from the border of Spain up to Bordeaux, as soon as I crossed the river all tourists vanished. It was only 2-3 days of the whole trip."
