There are countless kinds of vehicles in Japan. Some of them look so strange that nobody shall take. One of them is the moped. It is a kind of bicycle which takes on an engine.

In Japan, mopeds are treated just like scooters because they carry engines. So you need a helmet, license and are desirable to join some automobile third party liability insurance. Don’t you think it is easier to ride on a bicycle?

No license was necessary for riding on mopeds just after World War 2. Then, it is said that they used to very popular as produced by many companies like Honda and Suzuki. However, the only one company is in charge now. Fuki Planning in Yokahama does.

Surely, mopeds are supposed to be good to aged riders of scooters. You can usually ride as a scooter and shall change into a bicycle when getting sort of rusty. The price is not so high. Doing a little hard on some part-time job or overtime work can bring you to the mopeds.

I cannot help thinking it is not for youngsters and families, however. You are not allowed to ride tandem in Japan. Couples in love and new parents will not desire for the reason. If a policeman sees you use tandem, you are going to be forced into imposing a fine. When an accident meets you while riding with someone, insurance may not help you. After all, the mopeds can go all the way just as casual transport of the aged people.
