What’s up guys. Here is the itinerary for our touring during the New Years break. I will be as concise as possible so you don’t need to ask any dumb questions. Mentioning no names…
Date: December 30th (Wednesday) 2020
Time: 7:30am at McDonalds OR 8:00 am at the drinks machine (Locations listed below)
1 Chome-6-3 Josai, Nishi Ward, Nagoya, Aichi 451-0031
This is the 0730am MEET
This address will get you there if you don’t know where it is. I will be stopping outside the drinks machines in the picture.
This is the 0800am MEET
So, I figure some people will be late, and we might want to have a can of coffee, say hello to each other etc. so I imagine we should actually hit the road at 8:15am. If you’re late…tough shit. Catch us up on the highway.
First leg of the journey will be from the drinks machines above to the highway, bound for Obama in Fukui. We will take the highway all the way there. This is the boring part of the trip. The first destination is this Michi No Eki: 道の駅 若狭おばま (Roadside Station Wakasa Obama).
We will get on the highway at Joshin Entrance. Once we are on the highway it’s a boring 147km journey to Wakasa Obama. We can stop for gas/piss/smoke break on the way if everyone wants to. There is a gas station in Obama though, so I’m sure we will all be able to make it to Obama on one tank of gas.
So I figure we get a snack/drink/stretch our legs around Obama. It’s a seaside place, so we can just cruise around there and take in the sea air or whatever. Once we’ve done with that, we head onto Route 162 headed for Miyama Kayabuki-no-Sato (美山 かやぶきの里・北村).
“Miyama-cho is well known for its hamlets where traditional farmhouses with thatched roofs still exist. Kitamura is an area with a particularly large number of such houses, creating a village of thatched-roof houses. “
I figure we take in a bit of culture, get some sexy Instagram photos of our bikes (and Andy doing “Supreme” poses), get a bite to eat, then head back on the bikes (Still Route 162) to the gem at the end of the road…Kyoto.
Next part of the trip also seems decent. We head right down to Kyoto to the climax of the day which is a run or two up/down the Arashiyama Takao Park Way. It’s one of those bad-ass Skyline/Driveway type roads that Suzuki used to launch the new Katana and is super popular for Supercar drivers. It looks sick and I have already called to confirm that bikes ARE allowed on the 30th. Weekends and Publics holidays bikes aren’t allowed, but the 30th IS OK! Below is a drone video of the road. Looks awesome!
That’s all I got! I figure if anyone wants to, we can go into Kyoto after this and do some tourist shit, maybe grab dinner, then cruise home to Nagoya, or just do whatever. Split up if it’s what we want to do, or carry on together. We can decide that on the day.
Can’t wait. See you guys at McDonalds or the Jihanki near Nagoya Castle.
