Just about everyone I talked to in Kyoto, from friends to shopkeeper to cab drivers, had two pet peeves: bicycles and throngs of Chinese tourist. Bicycle because the so many of them now they swarm the sidewalks insured of peddling down dangerous roads and tend to scatter or plow into terrified pedestrians -- without apology.
