…and I have to say that it is a crazy old place. After over 24 hours of travel we touched down in Kansai airport at 10 pm local time. We then took a train (that looked like something from Flash Gordon) to our hotel. Today was the factory tour and an interview/meeting with Shimano main man Yozo Shimano. We’ve just got back to the hotel after a night of Japanese hospitality…they certainly do it different over here! I’ll hit you back with more news if I think you’ll be interested!

And hey, any of you trying to contact me on the old email, for some reason I can receive but not send out...boring fact!
