Distributed in the US by Abbeville Press (same ISBN), $50. Lavishly
produced hardback book about the history of the bicycle, intelligently
written and superbly illustrated. Considering what you get, it is good
value--especially as it is available discounted. (Amazon charge $35.)

Bicycling Japan: A Touring Handbook, by Suzanne Lee. Carmichael, Calif.:

slim paperback with a lot of information about cycling around Japan. Aimed
toward people who are new to Japan, but still of use to those who know it
other than as cyclists. Lacks information or tips about where are better
places to go.

Harrell. Tokyo & New York: Kodansha International, 1993. ISBN
4-7700-1742-1. 2200 yen / US$18. In print. A paperback with some tips on
cycling in Japan, but much more about particular itineraries. So
specific--with phone numbers of minshuku (pensions), etc.--that it is
likely to become dated and should therefore be used with care.
