NOT ALL SUSHI, SUMOS AND SAMURAIS.

Japan, one of the very few places where technology advancement is yet to overcome a nations strong cultural history. This is no doubt one of the main reasons why I decided to fly here in the first place. Passing temples, mountains and 50 other cyclists on a morning ride is something I never get to experiencehere in Australia.

I was given an opportunity to travel to Japan early last month which I gladly jumped at. Before I knew it, I was packing my bike, camera and a few kits and on a 8-hour plane flight to Osaka, Japan.

This is me and my mates, chasing the rising sun.

Osaka means large hill in Japanese. Late-night dancing was illegal until 2015.

Living off just rice, beef and chicken, I was off exploring this incredibly different country. As soon as I took off on a ride or jumped on a bus, I would find myself taking pictures of everything. Bridges, toilets, shops, I was constantly amazed by everything I saw.

Osaka is the second largest city in Japan with more than 10.5 million people living in it. 24 billion pairs of chopsticks are used in Japan each year.
