Another #Timelapse during #Rainynight in #Tokyo . Have to keep wiping the #rain off my lens. As you can see, I finally get tired and just let the water stick there. 😅 ... And i accidentally shift my camera a bit too. 🤐
I had a bike in Osaka and I used to ride around quite a bit. Almost all the bikes I've seen over here are the "around town" style ones instead of the mountain bike style that seems to be more popular back in Canada. The one I had in Osaka was the Japanese style and it was awesome. It had a basket and it had a shelf on the back that you could strap stuff to.
Basically the main difference is that bikes over here are more for living than for riding. Not only do you use them to get everywhere, you also use them for transporting anything you can think of, for giving friends rides (all those pictures and movies you see with two people on a bike are all true), for holding your spot for things... a whole bunch of stuff.
They have really weird locks here. Instead of the big chain or bar lock that you'd see in North America they have this tiny invisible horseshoe that sits on the top of the back wheel. When you want to lock your bike you just slide a lever on the horseshoe and a bar slides out through the spokes of the back tire and locks.
