Utility Bicycles in Japan


Typical basket and child seat bicycle left in the street by the crosswalk

Utility cycling is a big thing in Japan. On the contrary it seems personal motorbike usage in Japan is a rare thing unlike in Indonesia and Vietnam. In Tokyo I’ve seen a few motorcycles for business purposes such as food delivery.

What I have here are few snapshot collections of typical Japanese utility bicycles parked almost anywhere unless there’s a “no parking sign” indicated.
