A few months back, I biked the length of Zenpukuji River (善福寺川) in Tokyo, a detour on the way to work. Here's some bike-related photos taken along the way.
No-car road in neighborhood around Seikei University (成蹊大) in the Kichijoji area of Musashino City, western Tokyo.
Park entrance, guarding against scooter bypass. Bikes and people can fit, more or less. South entrance of Tateno Park (立野公園) in southern Nerima.
Bicycle Parking. One of many in Zenpukuji Park (善福寺公園) in the northern Suginami, Tokyo. No loops, no twists, no space wasted on immense locking stands. Just space to stop your bike. 99% of bikes in Tokyo are equipped with a built in lock. 90% of bikes are never stolen.
Two way road which you can freely bike and walk on. Scooter and bikes parked willy-nilly. Car parked into the street. People don't freak out. A river lies exposed, not jammed into some pipe to make lanes. They're not needed. A major passenger rail line passes overhead every minute or so. People don't freak out. The street is frequented by people, rather empty of cars.
Car stopping barriers at entrance to bike and person path. This is down at the entrance to Zenpukuji River Greenbelt near Minami-Asagaya (南阿佐ヶ谷). It's at the Itsukaichi Highway (五日市街道) bridge.
Mini pedestrian overpass at entrance to Suginami Kids Transportation Park (杉並児童交通公園).
Loaner bikes lined up at Suginami Kids Transportation Park, where traffic safety is made fun. Each has a different cartoon advertised. Disney's princesses, Winnie the Pooh, Mickey Mouse, Anpan Man, Hello Kitty. Hope there's some serious subsidizing going on here, like at Kidzania.
