Seminar: Cycle Around Japan

17th June 2019

Join us at the ‘Cycle Around Japan’ seminar in Brisbane, where NHK World-Japan television presenter and cyclist Michael Rice will recount his cycle touring experiences in Japan and offer advice on the opportunities available and waiting for the intrepid explorer—where all roads lead to the heart and soul, to the essence of Japan.

From winding coast to snow covered mountains, from the boundless horizons of Hokkaido to the ancient forests of mythology in Miyazaki prefecture, from well-loved destinations to the next new discovery awaiting around each bend of road, cycling in Japan offers a total immersion into the atmosphere of Japan – a unique way of experiencing the natural and cultural wonders of this country in a way like no other.

2PM | Dexus Place, L31, Waterfront Place, 1 Eagle Street, Brisbane

Hosted by the Consulate-General of Japan, Brisbane  – RSVP | phone: (07) 3221-5188 | email

The seminar will be followed by networking with refreshments.
