What is this?

When brainstorming about new destinations for biking, I had the idea of

  • going to all Tokyo Metro train stations and subway stations
  • going there not by car or train, but by bike
  • and then taking a picture of the train station, or one of the entrances

The big Metro lines started like this: there was a department store, and the line got constructed so people could get to the store. Eventually you end up with a nice meshnet of tracks. In October 2019, I cycled 30km to Nishi-funabashi in Chiba, and started with the Tozai line. Lets see how many lines I can finish, and how long it will take.

At the beginning of 2020, the project got a push as cycling is among the few activities which are allowed in the Cronoa time of “self restriction” in Japan (this is what we did instead of a lockdown), and cycling is even socially acceptable without mask.
