Stockade 


We’re about 140km from the very top of Japan pedalling up the west coast with the Sea of Japan to our left and a horizon leading to Russia. 

It is so beautifully bleak up here that the houses still remain ‘stockaded’ against inclement weather. The screen of timber slats is temporary to protect the dwelling behind from the colossal amounts of wind blown snow that comes in across the sea from Siberia.

It keeps getting cooler and increasingly windy the more we head north.
