Mothers in Japan really impressed me! Their lifestyle was unlike anything I’ve seen in other countries, often taking their kids on their bicycles to/from school, or at shopping, or just for a ride. The benefits of this are in so many levels I can just think a few: Saving the environment from unnecessary emissions, saving the city from traffic and noise, saving on energy, giving them a great workout which improves their health and saves on healthcare system, enjoying their surroundings more, interact with their environment, enjoying time with their family, giving their kids a strong example towards this lifestyle. I took a lot of these photos while walking, and maybe I disturbed them a bit, but this was my way of showing how amazed I was by this beautiful sight. Osaka, Japan.
