Why the hell do they always tie this stuff to the economy, why cant people just shape up for themselves or how about so we can take longer holidays instead of working more!!

Actually if Tokyo would add ebike and bike routes with green atmosphere, it would create a new micro economy and people would be more cheery and productive. The train lines hotels etc are all in cahoots and people suffer before they even arrive at work. Not much imagination going on with the Japanese in this regard.

The e scooters have caused major accidents and deaths in cities like London that they have now been banned on public roads. The hoover boards too. I think they are also banned here in Japan. I have seen rice farmers using the hoover boards but not on public roads.

Many roads are impossible to add bike lanes except for the wide ones. Electric bike are very popular especially with the young mothers with children.

Better to embark one stop early and then walk the last kilometer. Also use stairs in work places.

its because the cities were never designed for bikes or ebikes. in future city planning, if dedicated roads and paths, not bike lanes, were designed into the planning, it would make for a great day
