I have a work project in Sasebo Japan for the next few weeks. I arrived on Thursday night and was able to get my hands on a grade A piece-o-crap rental MTB complete with a 7-speed drivetrain, reflectors and a swanky kickstand. Unfortunately my luggage (that contained my bike stuff) did not arrive until Saturday. So despite the threat of a typhoon tracking through the region so I decided to get out while I could. So after ditching the kickstand and throwing on my pedals the bike was at its portly climbing weight and I was off up the mountain. Here are a few of the limited pictures I took while out and about on and around Mount Yumihari.

In Japan the word for “locally sourced organics” is “food”
Two years ago this statue was hidden back in the woods and looked a little neglected. The area around this has been cut back and it is now easily visible from the road. It has also been painted to really show it off. It was nice to see that this has been pulled “out” of the woods.
Mount Eboshi in the distance before I head down off of Yumihari. I’ll be up onto of that mountain in the near future.
