Around Tokyo is a rapidly growing site, showing visitors to this great city what is on offer.
I`ve lived in Tokyo for about 20 years and absolutely love living here. My spare time is usually spent walking around and finding out new things. Even though I`ve been here quite a long time, I never get bored of seeing the sights of Tokyo.
“Living and working in Shibuya for 20 years this city within the city of Tokyo is always surprising me with shops, trends and new places to visit. I hope to introduce you to many of those new and some of the old great places in Shibuya as well as touching on other Japanese related topics.”
“I have worked and lived in Japan for over 20 years. I started out with a publishing company where I established and managed their office in Japan. I also was Editor in Chief of Japan Management Review during that time. Later, I ran my own consultancy business before branching out into web businesses about 10 years ago.
After 4 years, I took a break from the web and the consultancy business scene and got involved with venture capital investment groups in Japan, which among many investments included purchasing golf courses, acquiring REIT businesses and running stock exchange listed companies. Following this, I spent a short-time in Australia working for a public finance company and creating an online financial market exchange.”
“With a bit of experience up my sleeve cycling in and around Tokyo I’ve learned the odd trick, avoided the odd accident, and seen the odd, occasionally extremely odd, thing or two. I’d like to use this blog to share some of those stories, tips and general observations with everyone, but what I am really hoping is that my writings will encourage others visiting or living in Tokyo, to get off the train and start exploring the vibrant city of Tokyo by bicycle.
You’ll be surprised at what you’ll discover when you travel around Tokyo by bike.”

If its on two wheels and in Japan then its worthy for discussion.
