Irohazaka Descent

Posted on November 11th, 2017

The Irohazaka hill in Nikko, Tochigi, Japan is one of the most famous in the country.

The descent during the fall foliage season is perpetually crowed as busses take the hairpin corners very slowly.

Bicycles can take the inside of the hairpins and pass cards on each one, as I did on this descent.

Take a look!
