The Nippon Nordic Alliance


Denmark and Japan, despite their cultural and geographic differences, have so much in common. Both cultures appreciate fine style, design and minimalism combined with practical usage. Here's a fine marriage of Denmark and Japan. A Velorbis Scrap Deluxe in action in Tokyo.

Ditto. This time in Shibuya Crossing.

And a Christiania Bike navigating the Shibuya Crossing.

Lovely Bicycle! said...

"Nippon-Nordic Alliance" makes me think of Bjork and Drawing Restraint 9. Trying to remember whether there were any bicycles in that film...

The Japanese lass makes one wonder why bike manufactures bother with ladies' frames. Mounting and dismounting in that tight skirt must be entertaining for passers-by...

I love seeing shots from Tokyo! There isn't a Tokyo Cycle Chic site, is there?

What a great pair. I appreciate the minimalism in both cultures.

Been to Denmark, but can't wait to visit Nippon. Bike-culture looks fantastic!
