Trying to get through Tokyo it's quite trafficie right now.




Lanesplitting


Stuck behind this beautiful Estima


Not too uncommon a site in Japan is seeing motorcycles used as delivery vehicles. This looks like a Kawasaki Zephyr with a monster yellow trunk installed on it.


Another example this is a mailman


Eventually I get to the gas station.

Ahh yes my favorite fullservice gas station. The dude is cleaning that cars wheels right now. Giving it the shoeshine!



Hi-oku mantan kudasai, they always ask cash or cado, cash for me!


That's a pretty rad looking fuel pump


Paid the man off to return the bike now.


So the gas station is literally around the corner from JBR.


Nice OG Mini Cooper


Around the corner we go.



Into that familiar alley.



And GOAL Japan trip is now complete at least the riding portion.

So there it is the end of my 2015 Japan Riding Trip! I wound up paying like 5000yen (about $50) for dropping the bike. They said if the bike has minor damage they have riders pay a small fee and eventually they replace the parts with this fund. Cool deal. I also wound up using my whole deposit on my ETC card that was like 10,000yen ($80). Those toll roads add up! Then I bid farewell to my buddy the Yama-nana.


So that's it! Sorry it took so long to write this report. Because as I write this last entry I am going on HadesOmega Japan Trip 2016 today I will post a final vlog movie and probably some pictures of other stuff I did in Tokyo after the riding trip later on. I did a lot of stuff. Thanks for following me on my Adventure of Japan!

Whew well I just came back from Japan Trip 2016 I forgot to put the link to the final VLOG video that I promised but here it is. It is basically me returning the bike and some video clips of some stuff I did after in Tokyo the rest of the trip. I will say this riding a motorcycle in Tokyo is no fun, once you get the bike get out of Tokyo and it's like a whole another world and with the motorcycle you have the freedom to go pretty much anywhere.
