Last June, WeFXD landed in Osaka for their first stop of their Japan tour. It was WeFXD's first tour outside the Philippines. They have brought their track bikes with them from Manila and explored one of Japan's more popular cities. June was the start of the rainy season in Japan as spring shifts to summer. Despite the occasional downpour, no rain was going to stop them.
Japan is mainly a bike-friendly country, and the majority of the population in Osaka are bike commuters. Motorists treat pedestrians and bike commuters with priority in the streets.
As fixed-gear riders, nothing else would excite these guys more than bike shop visits. Within Minami Horie, they got to visit Gira Gira Chariya (famously known as Track Supermarket), Giracha Coffee (Gira Gira Chariya's coffee shop), and Brotures. Brotures Osaka even did a blog entry about WeFXD's visit. Ayumu of Brotures explains that bikes creates friendship no matter what part of the world we are in. Read more about it in their blog
The tour highlights include the Osaka Castle, the shopping district of Dotonbori, and shrine visits around the city.
