Last Saturday I tried to go to my job by bicycle. It took 2.5 hours to go, 2 hours to come back. More than 4 hours… Today I tried to do a practical experiment an it only took 1.5 hours!
This is the path:
From Shinjuku, pass through Yotsuya, leaving behind the Sofia University, arriving to the Imperial Palace, and go through Ginza. Then cross the bridges until the Tokyo Big Site. My office is near there.
One of the thinks I like of Japan is that I can ride a bicycle in the pavement. The bicycle is a real transportation medium here.
