Ten years ago, in spring 2000, Lowell Sheppard began a seven-week, 3,000-kilometer cycling adventure from the southern tip of Japan to its most northerly island. His aim: to discover insight into the heart and soul of Japan by following the Cherry Blossom Front as it progressed north. The Cherry Blossom is a powerful symbol of hope in Japan and forms the core of a remarkable diary. He chose a great setting to explore the soul of a nation in economic, social and spiritual transition.
