RIDE ON THE RIGHT SIDE OF THE ROAD, NOT ON THE SIDEWALKS!
If you choose to get around in Japan on a bicycle, remember to obey all the rules of the road, just as if you were driving a car. That means driving on the left side of the road, stopping at stoplights, and so on.
Riding your bike on the sidewalks is prohibited except for persons under 12 or over 70.
Always use caution when driving near parked cars. Many accidents with bicycles and motorcycles are caused when a cyclist collides with an opening car door!
