Following on from the hugely enjoyable A RIDE IN THE NEON SUN, Josie takes us on the second part of her journey through Japan; a country whose keyword is peace, yet spends millions each year on high-tech armament. Josie's travels are as fascinating as they are varied; she endures a horrific storm at sea, samples the deadly puffer fish and visits the two cities which will forever symbolise the horror of war: Nagasaki and Hiroshima. But wherever she goes, no matter how remote or industrious the area, Josie encounters the friendly, quirky and unbelievably generous Japanese people, from those who load her down with cabbages and cans of Pocari Sweat to one couple who left her the key to their shop - and told her to sleep by the till!

Armed with only her bike and a great sense of humor, Josie Dew returns to Japan for a second dose of its eccentric and mysterious culture. Japan is a land of contradictions, where snow–capped mountains and picturesque gardens are but a stone’s throw away from concrete, cars, and dense pollution; a country whose keyword is peace, yet spends millions each year on high–tech armament. But wherever she goes, Josie encounters the friendly, quirky, and generous Japanese people, from those who lavishly bestow her with cabbages and cans of Pocari Sweat to the couple who left her the key to their shop, telling her to sleep by the till!About the Author:
Josie, still only thirty-five, has covered more miles and visited more countries on her bike than most people will ever travel by plane in their entire lives.
