All you need is a picture ID…driver’s license, etc….and you can ride, for free!, a Dahon of your choice, and see how the folding bicycle is a great option for bicycling in Japan, as you can carry it on the trains to your destination, and ride about in places you’ve not seen quite as you would riding a Dahon! A unique and inspiring adventure!! 🙂
