Four Tokyo Supermums [and a Superdad]
The Supermums of Tokyo. Just getting on with it. Over at Copenhagenize.com we've posted about the political power of these gorgeous supermums. They're not to be messed with. In many cities in Japan it is not allowed to drop off your kids at daycare/school by car because of traffic safety and pollution so the bicycle is a very important transport option in the country, especially for mothers.
To read about the bikes they use, the mamachari, here's a review from Copenhagenize.com.
Getting the kid settled in.
Having a chat.
A lot of Japanese supermums have these handlebar grip covers on their bikes. Go figure. And off topic... what's up with the dog stroller on the right? Quirky.
And a superdad in Omotesando.
A little film featuring the Japanese supermums. Just click past the guy yapping at the beginning - he yaps for about 1:18 minutes - to see a parade of supermums.
