cycle path Niigataken Japan

This is a cycle path in my old village in Niigataken, Japan that led to the mountains. You can see from the trees that it is springtime. Although this photo captures the edge of the suburbs, the path becomes more rural as you cycle on passing rice fields and then forest.
