In the previous post, it was a fresh way to discover Tokyo through bicycles. They became the main focus while roaming the streets and added another layer of my urban photography.
Tokyo is one of the most visited cities in the world and there are abundant stories about it. I wonder if there would be any angles that I would discover and get me anchored during this trip. That was the relationship between the city and bicycles.
I would say that it was the first time that I’d experienced one of the most bicycle-friendly in the world. Without any previous knowledge about it, it was fascinating to this urban transportation in full range. From moms to a salaryman to a homeless man, they all had a bike at some point.
Bicycles were everywhere, so also parking: on the streets, in subway stations and apartments. I found those bikes on the street added another unique characteristic to the Tokyo urban landscape.
Rules and regulations about bicycle parking were apparent. Of course, there would be some mischief and mistreatment. We are human after all.

Something does not make sense. The clock is gone and back. Someone must have taken it and realised it was broken then put it back.
