Abroad on a Bike | Journey Across Japan


Join Chris Broad as he attempts to cycle from the seaside town of Sakata in Yamagata prefecture to Kagoshima City. The journey will see Chris cycle somewhere in the region of 2,000 kilometers over a six week period. A number of guest riders will feature along the way to give him the motivation and support he will need to persevere when conditions, and inevitably, his body, fail him.

With content being added whilst the trip is taking place, be sure to check out Tokyo Creative News often for daily videos, guest rider reveals and 'behind the scenes' photos!
